5 Items to Stock Up on When You Have Teenage Boys
Teenage boys are expensive. When they’re not eating you out of house and home, they’re karate-chopping holes in the drywall or putting BB gun dings in your car’s new paint job. One way to offset the expense of your favorite money pits is to buy and bulk. Stock up on these items now and you’ll give your wallet a break later.
Axe Body Spray
Boys go through two general phases. Before they like girls, they spend a lot of time out of the house rolling around in the mud, playing with the hose or whatever little boys do that keeps them smelling like wet dog. When they get a little older, they spend a lot of time outdoors hanging around the mall picking up girls. During either phase, a little cologne never hurts. Keep a supply around so they can spray it on themselves, in their gym bag and under their bed. At least from now on you’ll know what that smell is.
Non-Functioning Mock Security Camera
Every parent needs a break from their teenage boys at some point in time. But any parent who’s ever seen any teen movie knows that as soon as they announce their departure date, their kid is going to send out a flyer for a raging party. If you want to leave for a weekend without losing your peace of mind, install a few mock security cameras in the house the next time he’s at a sleep over. Now that he thinks you’re watching, he’ll be on his best behavior.
Handy Art Fabric Paint Kit
One of the natural steps in the evolution of the teenage boy is the crappy garage band. Even before he and his band mates master their instruments, they’re going to want to print t-shirts. When he hits you up for the deposit check for your local printers, hand him the Handy Art Fabric Paint Kit. Since you bought in bulk, he’ll have more than enough paint and materials to print enough shirts to sell to anyone who can make it through a whole set.
Simoniz Detailers Brushless Car Wash System
One of the best returns on your investment in teenagers is a little bit of free labor, am I right? If he’s old enough to start asking for a car, he’s old enough to start washing them. The Simoiniz Detailers Brushless Car Wash System has everything your teen needs to keep the family’s cars sparkling. If he balks at the idea of doing basic household chores, don’t make a fuss. Just hand him a bill for rent, his share of the utilities and all of the food he eats. He’ll be out there scrubbing before he has his next sandwich.
Clearasil Ultra Vanishing Rapid Action Treatment
Being a teenager is rough. Most of that can be blamed on hormones. In addition to moody behavior, puberty brings on pimples. To help him weather the storm, stock up on Clearasil. If he’s like most teens, he’ll need gallons of the stuff before it’s all said and done. Buy it in bulk and you’ll save hundreds of dollars and help your teen’s chances of scoring a date to the prom.
