Till Next Time......
It is still July and I am already thinking and talking about school. This fall, my whole house will be embarking on a new schedule and new lifestyle. My household consist of 6 persons, all of which will be full-time students. My husband and I were accepted to NCA&T; he is pursuing a Technical/Electrical degree and I, Cultural Change and Social Development (like what else were you expecting?). Our son will be entering into the 11th grade, while our girls are going to the 8th, 3rd, and 1st grades. We are all excited.
Unbeknownst to them, we are going to drastically change our spending habits and I wondered today, why now and not before. We are not spending mad dollars on school supplies that get put into a draw or shelf somewhere and forgotten because the kids didn't really need it anyway. We are cutting cell phone bills (Walmart has a good plan), getting rid of the cable (I was suppose to do this a long time ago but fear got me holding), and the food- I will learn how to effectively use coupons and revisit the co-op to see how we can use them for fresh veggies and stuff. Back to the 'why now' question. I procrastinated and we still have bills that we can't afford, so now is better than never.
So, yes, school is approaching quickly and if I don't start thinking about it now, it will creep up on me and I don't like to be panicked nor stressed.
Have you started to think about 'School 2011-2012'?
