Cool Lunch Money Holders That Are Perfect for Your Teen

yellow school busBack-to-school time holds loads of wonderful memories for me. Growing up, I was the lucky lil' lady with the father who loved cruising up and down the aisles at the back-to-school sale with the shopping cart. Dad enjoyed everything about my school days, from dropping me off each morning until I got my driver's license to handing me over my $4 daily allowance of lunch money.

Ahhhh, lunch money. Never left home without it. And you'd better believe that I kept good track of it. If it weren't for my trustee Vera Bradley wristlet, I would have lost it in no time. So why not help your teens keep track of their loose change with one of these 10 stylish lunch money holders:
