If you have school aged kids - its time for you to buckle down and start putting away $$$ for the upcoming school year! Which depending in your area could start anywhere from mid July to early September.

I'm sick of the beggar posts on here with women crying they can't afford new shoes, an outfit, or school supplies.
Make a lists of obvious basics that will be needed per child, put away $5-$10 per child every week. If everyone does this we can have one less pity post. BE PART OF THE SOLUTION! AND BE A RESPONSIBLE PARENT!


**if you're good with money and got it covered by all means proceed you're on the right track.


P.S I will remind everyone about Christmas in the upcoming months.

And there are great tips and inspiring stories from other moms in the replies. Take note if you need to!

Why thank you, Captain No-Shit! 

Seriously, do people need to be reminded that children cost money?

And sadly there are many people who don't have that much left over to put it back.

I gave an amount just as a suggestion, this is more of a reminder to put away what you can. Rather than panic the week before like many of these women do on here!!!

Many just received tax refunds, so there is still time to think about upcoming expenses that are a given!

Search about school supply posts if you want a sneak peak. It gets brutal. Oh and wait until Mother's Day. A ton of "he didn't get me anything/what I wanted/blah blah whine". I avoid those times on here.

Oh the benefits of homeschooling. We will wait until the back to school stuff goes on clearance to stock up on everything but dry erase markers that we go through like crazy. Ds usually gets a new outfit for the first day but it's not a huge expense for us thankfully.
