Getting Back To School
For the kids, it seems like summer came and left pretty fast (for the adults, it may mean you can get a break). Some states start as early as next week, and some a little later in the month. Everyone is now running around buying up school supplies, clothes, etc., but instead of running from store to store, why not get a plan?
It makes it easier on you (and your budget), to start developing a list and checking who may have the best sales by scrubbing the internet. Also, this may be a good time to put your craftiness to work - decorate and repurpose some of the things you may have and/or need.
If you want to make it fun, have a Back-To School party. Gather up the kids and some of their friends (along with the adults), fix up some quick & easy dishes, and while the kids are having fun in one room, you and the other parents can be in another, planning how you all can survive another school year.
