Part of homeschooling middle school is teaching your children about money. No matter how many math questions children do concerning money in their text books it is important to understand that these are not "real life" experiences. Encourage your children to find ways to earn their own money and work with them to create a budget. Keep in mind that the money your middle school children earn is theirs and making mistakes with it is part of learning. Do not be the buffer between your child's money decisions all the time. Allowing your middle school child to spend all of their money on something trivial is an important lesson on responsibility.
