Back to school…three little words that can be a relief to hear or a dreaded reminder that your kids are growing and need new clothes yet again!
Back to school shopping can be a stretch on any budget and the first ones to take a back seat during this budget crunch are usually the parents.
Urgent seasons tend to take our focus off of what’s most important–your marriage–and if you haven’t taken time to plan ahead for the crunch your marriage may go hungry.
Well, not to worry.
I’ve come up with a variety of ways to celebrate the back to school frenzy that won’t hurt your budget or cause your marriage to be neglected.
Take one idea a day and use to communicate in little ways how important your spouse is to you. Even if you don’t have time or money to go out on the town, you can still make the most of each season in meaningful ways.
I’ve broken them down into themes using the subjects of school as my inspiration. Who knows? Your spouse may look forward to school starting again after all. Why not shoot for straight A’s in all subjects?!
Don’t forget those 9 week report cards where you reward your spouse for all the ways they’ve achieved success in your eyes.
Back-to-School–It’s not just for kids anymore!
Until next time…
