I am not leaving myself enough time on Friday to detail my lists. It's been a long week and today we are out and about doing some shopping. I waited until the last minute to shop for Jeb's football gear and his first practice is tomorrow!
We decided to take half a day to knock out a whole bunch of shopping while we were at it. So I have been with all my guys shopping for school clothes, school supplies and football gear and we still aren't done. On a good note, they have promised to take me out to dinner tonight as a treat! I might need it as it's been a very long day. Let's just say that I am the ONLY one in the family who enjoys shopping 😉 They have been troopers and there haven't been too many complaints. BUT...we aren't quite done yet so hopefully I can keep them going a bit longer.
I might cry when I look at all the receipts though. While I do budget for back to school it still doesn't make it any easier to thrown down that big chunk of moolah all at once. Being the frugal gal that I am, I cringe when I see those super specific school supply lists. I love the boys' school and the teacher are fantastic. I absolutely know why they request those specific items but dang it...I have a ton of GREEN folders---why did they need red, blue and yellow 😉 Oh well, it's all good.
Anywho, the guys are waiting for me in Kohl's so I am going to let you guys share your totals. I will try to come back at some point tonight when I can find my receipt and drop in my spending this week. I hope you guys saved lots of moolah. Share you totals in the comments or link up!
