Saving money while gearing up for Kindergarten


I am definitely going to be THAT mom on my son’s first day of Kindergarten. I will be a blubbering mess taking a million pictures of him taking his first step onto the school bus. Even though I know the day is coming it is hard to prepare myself. I do not know if I am more upset about him being gone, or the fact that he is so excited to leave me to go to school.

Either way, I need to start accepting the fact that he is ready and excited. Do not get me wrong, I am thrilled for him to start on this new journey in life, but he was my first baby so this will be a huge change.

In order to prepare myself I am taking a straightforward approach and making sure I know all the details about Kindergarten. Including his schedule, curriculum, pick-up and drop-off times, and every other important detail about the upcoming school year. This also includes being prepared with his school clothing and supplies.

  1. I don’t like surprises much either, when it comes to money. Phone bill surprises are def. the worst (so been there, done that)! 😉

  2. Aweee You know I was THAT mom and any GOOD mom would be! Sure we are proud of them and of course we don’t want them to see US upset which is difficult to hide I know. Be strong, he is going to rock this! I agree saving is so key to getting your kids off to a good start in school and I will check into this service.

  4. Oh my goodness, kindergarten was so long ago. My children are even past their children’s kindergarten and now I guess it’s my great-grandson who will need to go to kindergarten. LOL Go figure. I tried to decline to be a great NaNee, but they say I couldn’t! darn……… but he is a cutie anyways. lol
