I have the same rule....once they start asking for everything everywhere, nobody gets anything for a long time. We clean out toys and stuff on a regular basis and we dont buy expensive items for them, we shop secondhand and thrift stores, the older two (4 and 2) have small amounts of money sometimes (say $2 when we go yard sales) and once its gone, its gone. That way they have the visual experience of choosing, spending, and then living with the choice.
