Tomorrow, my friend whom I’ve known since high school is coming with her son for a week-long visit.
When they leave, my days will be filled with dentist appointments and doctors appointments for pets and then…
The Man Beast and I leave on our first cruise ever!
I’m sure to have plenty of material to share when I get back, so please check back often.
Summer is slowly winding down for us here in the South. School starts back the first week of August and I don’t think any of us are really ready for it.
The end of summer means back-to-school sales. Do you know when your local stores are hosting their back-to-school sales? It is worth looking into. I read back in April that the tax-free weekends are a thing of the past (at least here in GA). This means, us moms have to get supplies cheap or risk completely breaking the bank.
I usually buy most of my supplies at Staples during their penny sales. Since I work for the school, I get more than the maximum items. Last year, the maximum on loose-leaf notebook paper was 10. I was able to get 25 (and it still only cost me 25 cents!)
Wal-Mart and Kmart are good places to start as is Target.
If times have hit you hard and you can’t afford to buy supplies for your kids, I encourage you to check your local churches, Salvation Army or United Way for help.
Until I “see” you again, stay cool and safe!
