remember when 2 dollers and 50 cents was a lot of money?

    My dad used to pick me and my younger brother up from school once a week. He'd give us a dollar to buy candy with, and every week I'd go without candy so I could save up my dollars. After a couple of weeks I could buy an Archie Comic book.
    I miss 5cent candies.

    i used to get three dollars allowance to clean my room when i was 5, i thought it was so much money. now days $1000 dont seem like a lot since i have to pay bills n shit all the timei mean i know it is a lot but once you pay rent, electric, phone and any other crazy shit that comes up its all gone........
     
  3. I remember when I lost a tooth, I got $2.50 from the tooth fairy, and I thought I was rich!! That was the most money the tooth fairy left me. I usually only got 25 or 50 cents, but it was the Pow Wow weekend, so the toothfairy thought I needed a little extra spending money. That's what my mom told me when I was so amazed at my riches!

    It really depends on how you look at it. If I was going shopping for instance, 2.50 would be nothing...yet if I'm at school, and I want to get something for lunch, 2.50 is really happening

    I'm a Brit so $2.50 is pretty meaningless. How much would that be in pounds?

    Well okay for the sake of argument I'll go with £2.50.
    It was a lot when I was child. It could get me a magazine and weeks supply of sweets/candy (I didn't eat that much) from the local corner shop. My brother and I used to cycle there.
    Now days said amount in said shop gets me one night to a night and a half (depending on the movie) DVD rental.
