Taking the Awkward Out of Paying Another Parent Back
A new school year means reconnecting with old friends and making new ones – not just for the kids but even for parents, too. Back-to-school season means a return to packed lunches, carpools, field trips, after-school programs and team sports.
While we love that our kids get to participate in fun activities, these costs can start to add up. Whether it's pitching in for the cost of a few dozen cookies for a PTA meeting, filling up the gas tank for a field trip, or reimbursing an unexpected school supplies purchase, money can be a sore subject. However, minimizing the awkwardness of sending and requesting money with other parents is possible.
