We started off the ending of school doing well. I thought I was saving on food since I didn’t have to buy all the snack and lunch stuff I do during the school year. Now we are in week 3 of the little crumb snatchers being home and I swear my food budget cannot keep up with their appetites.
I admit part of the problem is my fault we do spend alot of time at home which in my opinion is rightfully so because it is super hot and humid here in NC. You should also know that I proudly admit I am not an outdoors person. I assume that if we were on the go more food probably wouldn’t go as fast. On the other hand my son is 6 years old and eats like a pig and still manages to never gain any weight. I think it’s all the running around he does, boy do I wish I had his energy. My daughter isn’t so bad except she is a juice drinker and while she will drink her fair share of water I am going through pitchers of lemonade and juice boxes by the dozen.
I guess the point of this short post is HELP…THEY ARE EATING ME OUT OF HOUSE AND HOME!
Are your kids eating you out of house and home during the Summer?
I am curious to know does your food budget change when the kids are out of school? Do you spend more or less money?
