How many times has your kid come home saying they forgot their lunch or lunch money? On my daughter’s first day of school, she wanted one thing for lunch in her Pottery Barn personalized lunch box but got another. She told her teacher that we only gave her snacks and she didn’t have anything for lunch. This is the story from a 2nd grader which was her innocent understanding. We ran into the teacher after school at Staples and as I introduced myself, the first thing she said was, ‘your daughter didn’t have any lunch money today.
What a way to start off my reputation as a mother with her. Of course I shared that this wasn’t the case at all and cleaned up my rep right afterwards. Of course, my kid forgot her lunch the very next day so it seemed as if I was an unfit mother. But I’m not. Most days anyway.
We finally signed up for mySchoolBucks where you can pre-pay your child’s lunch. That way if he/she forgets their lunch they are covered.
According to their website, whether paying for chemistry lab fees, purchasing books, buying athletic tickets, or simply paying for school lunch, mySchoolBucks gives parents the peace of mind when it comes to their children’s school purchases. Just what parents need.
Transaction fees are just $1.95 which hubby does not like paying ANY fees whatsoever. It’s easy, convenient, there’s even an app for it, and the school bully can’t take your child’s lunch money. How’s that?
