You may or may not know, but a couple years ago I participated in the Sun Sentinel School Supply Challenge. The Sun Sentinel gave us $10 and wanted to see how far we could stretch it, with all the supplies being donated to local teachers.
There were 3 of us participating and collectively we brought in over $600 in supplies, and I thought to myself well, I did it then, I can do it again.
We have 3 kids in school and as you know, school supplies can really add up. Last year, I bought everything all at once, to get it over with, and regretted it. This year, I decided to set a goal for my spending, similar to the school supply challenge. It is simple really. $30 for 3 kids. Follow me, as I strive to reach my goal, I will update the post to let you know how I am progressing. Who knows, maybe you can get some ideas for your own shopping!
|$4.02||Overage – Publix|
|$8.92||Overage – Walmart|
As you can see, I have utilized overage and rewards from ink cartridges to supplement my budget. It’s a good thing, too as the girls HAD to have the fancy pencil bags 😉
I am down a little over $5, I will update the post as I make purchases. Will you join me in the school supply challenge?
