“One man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure” or it is all in the eye of the beholder.
I’ve always made sure my children went cycling, swimming, dancing and any other activity I could think of. The equipment I provided may not have been the most up to date but it was good enough to have a go.
I was very proud of my son, when he used his own money to but his own bike. It is certainly treasure to him.
