Feeling shocked and now my wallet is empty.. Oh my..

Almost finished school shopping.. Can t believe how much it cost to get supplies, and clothes, and shoes. Hair cuts, times 3 plus myself. Wow now that's expensive. Lol. The older the kids get, they want better more expensive stuff.. I m not made of money sweet little honeys.. They do not realize how everything costs money!! Except smiles, hugs and love.. :)

    Yep. I know. Children have no concept of money at certain ages. Even as they get older they really don't fully get it.

    They really don t I thought it was mostly my own kids, but I see kids more and more I want that. And it s frustrating because they just keep wanting more. I recently starting making my kids do chores all month and at the end of the month I ll buy them a small price. Under $ 15. Even that adds up. It s not easy being a parent that s for sure. We love our kids so much. I hear ya. I know that I need to toughen up. lol and try to teach them.

        I have three myself...twins who are 8 and a 10 year old (going on 18) lol Luckily my boys have to wear a uniform BUT that still gets pretty expensive. Luckily I am a master at finding deals. We really didnt spend to much. I went to childrens place used my 20% off coupon plus they were having 30% off their uniforms=50% off total. I always hit the clearance racks first. I have trained my children to always start in the back of store first. This way they get tired of looking by the time the reach the front, because the'yve already gotten their clearance items. I also tell them you can get more clothes if you shop the clearance section lol. I know when I was a pre teen I wanted to most fashionable items, AE,AF, and more..well ive learned they have sales too lol went to hollister and got 20% off of the clearance! So needless to say we did pretty well this year. Just train your children in the right clothing direction and youll be okay!
