Back to School and Fees Fees Everywhere

August 7th, 2014 at 10:01 am

Hello all!
I am a bit down today over all these school fees we are required to pay. As my blog says, I have 15 year old twins, both who play sports. We have our "team" meetings coming up, my daughter's "fee to play" will be $300, as will my son's. Another $35 each for "lab fees" and pictures next week. And as they are growing teenagers, they are eating me out of house and home.
We put our usual money in savings and college savings this month, but there won't be a ton of extra to put in additional savings. And for that, I feel guilty for some reason. Then, because of this, I go into "uber cheap" mode. Its a vicious cycle. I haven't even been to the thrift store for back to school clothes for my dauther. Son doesn't care about that. LOL
I'll just be happy when Sept. and October are here and we can get back to normal. I don't like feeling guilty. I don't even SPEND that much on other items... Sigh.

I did get a $3 pinecone and soon to cash out for $3 at Bing.

I must have patience and count my blessings.
