Hey all you single moms w/ more than 1 kid ..what strategies or methods you use when it comes to bk 2 school shopping?
I have 3 , children 2 teenagers and a 12 year old.. I find it can be very challenging around this time when it comes to bk to school shopping , last year I went through hell because finances were not all that great. this year I did things a bit different instead of waiting on my next paycheck or money to come in all at once I took the "Christmas shopping approach and bought each one of my kids a little bit here and there. it seems to be working and since I work online anyway, I also did my kids bk 2 school shopping for clothes online . my oldest boy is kinda picky he want the latest gear, and my daughter is more into all the latest hair maintenance products .. and my youngest boy is in a class all by himself lol he really doesn't care what he wears as long as its comfortable and stylish to HIS standards . So tell me single moms or dad whats your method? when do you start your shopping?.. how do you deal with the kids that are the " gota have this or that"? thanks u guys!
