After watching her in dance/singing class and making sure she wants to keep at it, we went out to purchase her new dance uniform. The uniform has been a new compulsory addition this year - so there were not outgrown ones to purchase from older dance students. I hate buying new - it's not green or frugal enough for me. I had her in black leggings and a purple singlet for her first 3 weeks in the bigger girls class and now it was time to bite the bullet as she showed no signs of quitting, even though she was saddened by the girls whispering how small she is (she's the youngest in the class).
The uniform (top, leggings and headband) cost us a whopping $78.60. We hope it will fit her for the next 2 years as it's for 4 to 6 years old. I aim to care for the garments gently and not let her play in it at the playground. If I can keep it well looked after I might be able to sell it on, to recoup some of the money.
The 3 of us went out for Pizza for dinner. It was time we shouted ourselves something nice especially since we were having our mini holiday at home and not in Bali as originally wanted.
Are You or your children enrolled in extra activities? How do you manage the costs of classes and uniforms?
