The Season For Spending Money.

The school holidays are finally here and my wife is feeling bitter sweet about it. Bitter cos both the boys will be home and when they're together, they're worse than a herd of stampeding elephants (LOL), and sweet cos she doesn't need to get up so early in the morning to prepare their breakfast before school, hence the bitter sweet feeling :D

As for me, I'm more concerned about when they start school next year. I know it's still a long way to go, almost 7 weeks but I've just seen the list of stuff they need for school. Their school fees alone are going to cost a bomb, not forgetting the uniforms and stuff. The Christmas season is also coming up and there'll be lots of presents and stuff to buy. Not forgetting that my house plays host for the Christmas dinner this year.

Looks like I'm going to be needing to start printing some money soon ... LOL! Actually I seriously think I need to open a checking account soon. Seeing as how I'm going to have be making loads of payments for things soon and I don't really want to handle such big sums of money, a checking account is the way to go. I could use my credit card but some places are so old fashioned, they only except cash of cheques! Need to do some research on the best deals for checking accounts out there.

I read that Wamu a bank in the US offers free cheques with every checking account you open. That's pretty cool cos I think most banks here charge you a fee for a certain number of cheques. I'm not really sure but I'll definitely do some checking (pun intended, LOL) before opening a checking account.

Isn't education suppose to be free? I guess not. You've got 2, I shudder to think the families with many kids...

7 weeks off from school in November?? Must be our equivalent to summer vacation?

Sweetiepie, Well, they say it's free but I'm still paying for it ... LOL! Oh, I don't even want to imagine those families with plenty of kids, I'm sure they ain't gonna enjoy when school starts again ... LOL!

Diamond, yeah, it's the equivalent to your summer vacation. When I was schooling, this is the time I'd be looking forward to the most. More time to sleep, eat, play, sleep ... LOL!

Hi Nick! Thank you so much for dropping by. I appreciate your comment. Why don't you go back on bowling? That'll be nice. Happy Sunday!

Spiff said...

Liza, you're welcome. I'm just too lazy to go bowling again, besides my buddies are not too keen on it anymore. Maybe I should try convincing them again ... LOL! Thanx for dropping by. Happy Sunday to you too
