The summer has gone by so fast and school is right around the corner. Time for back to school shopping, getting in any last summer trips, and going to the pool while you can. Although you usually purchase items right before school starts again, there is also the question of whether you pack your lunch at home or purchase your lunch at school on a daily basis. How does your family decide what works for the budget? Do you ever help pay for lunch? Or, do you purchase snacks at school that might go along with a packed lunch?
When I was in school, I remember packing my lunch and going to the grocery store with my mom each week to pick out what I wanted to eat. It usually worked out pretty well, but if I remember correctly, I think I used my own money to buy occasional snacks from the vending machine.
If you participate in home schooling, do you usually eat lunch at home or do you go out to lunch?
Speaking of school, next week FORUM has a “Back to School Week” promotion. Do you have friends that aren’t FORUM members? When anyone 0 to 19 years old opens an Aware Kids or Teens Account next week, they will be entered to win a $50 Target gift card for back to school shopping. (Promotion is from August 3rd – 7th). So, let your friends/family know so they have a chance to win!
Have a good weekend!
