This year has been rough on my family due to a few medical bills and increases in monthly bills. I've already made as many budget cuts as I possibly can including cutting the girls' dance classes. I can't even afford the school supplies. This is a sad moment for me parenting. When I was a child I loved school and getting to pick out my own school supplies and a few outfits was the best ever! My dd's are the same way. I feel like a failure. I have contacted the school and they qualified us for free supplies and back pack this year thank God. But I have no way of getting my girls an outfit. I did buy some shoes that were a size too big on sale earlier this year I hope they grow into them. I've tried getting some overtime at work but they don't allow it. Is anyone else in this same situations? We are not strangers to the good will but up until now we always were giving to charities and donating our time. It's just me and my girls so I now we'll be fine but I just want them to have something to be proud of for back to school. Sorry this was so long. Thanks for listening.
I had my dd try on her pants from last year and they still fit :-)) So this gives me a little more time to work something out. Her jackets/sweaters and long sleeve shirts are showing her wrists too much so that's where I'm gonna start looking for items. Her birthday is 2 months away. If the weather stays nice and she doesn't go through a growth spurt, we are looking okay for now. I did call goodwill and they have 25cents days every Tuesday. Thank you all so much for all the advice and support. God Bless you all.
