Not sure...we had 200 budgeted...because I based it off of last year... I hope it was just an oversight and that those who played in the fall get a little bit of a discount... fingers crossed... if not, this might be the last season we play here...

Nan, hope it is just an oversight, I used to get so frustrated when fees would jump that much between seasons!

I am so glad for all the smart sane advice here. We do not pay for grades, they are expected. Other kids get paid good for them. DS12 doesn't have a phone, no activities that aren't on school grounds & there is a phone there in teachers room to use. We have an uncool home phone still, use that!! The jump in soccer fees is crazy! Although, I wish ds could still play, (all outside school end at 6th grade, whether you make school team or not which is kindof sad) I may just go put that extra $200 I just "saved" into savings! I love the pinterest saying.
I am glad to see that I am not the only house that has rules. I swear, most of the people around us either don't have them or don't enforce them. Either way is bad. BTW, it was other parents that told me "no time or interest to police the devices" I am like the mom with the iphone that had her son sign the contract & hand over ever night, except I keep the 3ds, & itouch in my control. No tv in bedroom either. He has a friend whose mom says he doesn't sleep at night, but plays games & watches tv (she says Storage Wars & Pawn Stars for learning?, ds says kid has seen every Family Guy episode she says he doesn't watch). She then wonders why my ds is on honor roll & hers isn't. Can you see why my perception is skewed a little? ROTFL!!!
On thread, I am hoping for a no-buy weekend, which is unrealistic because it is DHs weekend off, so I am going to go low buy. There will be no clutter purchased & hopefully a LOT of purging here. I made some progress in that area & things are going, not coming!! I am determined! Oh yeah, & the Christmas lights HAVE to be dug out of the snow while we are at a lull. I know there is more coming......it's out there.....

1/8- $0
1/9- Fred Meyer $9.54 groceries $41.58 kid stuff (ds snowpants on clearance-should get 2 years out of them, undies for the DD's and a pair of leggings for DD#2 all on clearance) went looking for crocs for DS I got some last year for $5 and he loves them. Safeway- $62.12 more meat and pasta $0.50 a box. Gas was $2.99 a gallon with my rewards -$58.99 and a $66 dollar trip to J's (but it was all business stuff, cant cut out things without mats and blades)
1/10-$0
1/11
1/12
1/13

Bummer about those fees! DD#2 has decided that she would like to try Hockey- but first we must learn to Hockey skate.... so.much.fun.

Whew!! The fees are the same as I budgeted!! !!! The form email doesn't distinguised between the season in case someone is playing and needs a uniform..
So, I will take care of them next Friday with the regular bills...

We have no TVs in the kids' rooms here... we are the worst parents ever.. DD was so excited when she found out she could have one in her college dorm.. LOL You would have thought she hit the lottery!


Oh learning to hockey skate should be fun!! Good Luck!!

Ok, I'm off to bed.. it's late... the boys have to go to school and we have to get DD's car loaded to return to school.

I love that picture! I wonder if it's downloadable subway art somewhere so I can print it out and hang it in Morgan's room?

Morgan only got a phone because of the fact that we no longer had busing in 5th grade. We all needed to get in touch with each other, should something happen on our way to pick her up after school. It's basic, she's only allowed 250 texts a month, (and that's new, only added that a few months ago) and if she goes over, she pays for it. She has other ways to contact her friends, she doesn't NEED to be texting.

When we change carriers next year, she will end up with a newer phone, but she'll almost be freshman by that point

Hoping for a no-buy day today, but I have a feeling we'll end up getting take-out for dinner...

Woohoo Nan!

I haven't spent any personal money.

I did buy business supplies though. I knew it was coming. So it was waiting.

We didn't do too bad, he only added one item that wasn't on list, $1.59 for juice. I actually was surprised when we finished and we were over $25 under budget.

I added a little to our grocery run today... but I wanted my Kellogg's cracker chips.. I am craving them for my snacks instead of chips or snack cakes...

So, I spent 39.00 (38 and some change) at the store today.. and I bought extra milk so I don't have to go out again before grocery day on Friday.. DH put 20 in gas because he drove my car this week...
