Gosh, every year I tell myself, "I'm going to be so good and save as much as possible. I'll have so much money left at the end of the summer to put into savings." Then, summer hits! I see this cute thing here, my house needs this new appliance, something in my car breaks, wow! did you see those shoes? and BAM! It's the end of summer and I'm scraping money from the bottom of the piggy bank. Our first check isn't until September 9th. How will I ever survive? Does anyone else feel the pain? Does anyone have a trick to making your summer money last?

We have been hurting too. My last check was on June 24th. Thankfully I get paid this week on the 24th. I am so glad that my hubby gets paid regularly and can get overtime as well. That is the only way we have made it through.

My DH is also a teacher. So things get tough sometimes, although we love our summers together. I am with you on every 25th.. plus now, I'm getting nervous about all the costs of a first baby. Did you all buy things slowly when you found out you were pregnant? My mom says I'll get a lot of things at the baby shower, but I'm a worrier.

Every time I did groceries, I bought something small for the baby - a packet of wipes, diapers, socks, whatever. It helped!

I wasn't able to buy things almost at all, luckily I had a great shower and was given stuff at Christmas and everything.

I feel like I spend way more money in the summer because we are out and about more often. In the school year I'm stuck at work, so I spend less! So yeah, we feel it at the end of the summer, too!
