Spend Your Child Care Business Income on Purpose!


On September 28, 2011, I received eight boxes of shelving for my center! I was so excited to receive the new shelving and throw out the old shelving. The shelving came with a $1400 bill and I was given 30 days to pay off the balance.

The day that I received the shelving, the parents were in the process of raising funds to pay for the shelving. However, the money that the parents raised was not enough to pay the entire bill and I was forced to pay cash for the shelving with a monthly payment plan.

I must say that as of the date that I write this blog post, the invoice that I received for the shelving is now PAID IN FULL!!!

When I wrote the final check to pay off the invoice, I was reminded that when you create a goal and a budget for what you want for your business; you can have anything that you desire without the burden of loans!

Do you desire to purchase new equipment for your childcare business? If so, step out, create a payment plan for what you want and you will be amazed at what your business can afford when you spend your business funds on purpose!!

I look forward to reading your thoughts about this post. Talk to you soon!


Save Money When You Buy Milk From Sams Club

Source: Sams Club

Today I made my weekly visit to Sam’s Club to buy food service and housekeeping supplies. After picking up my supplies, I decided to buy some milk while I was at Sam’s Club. I was quite surprised to discover that a Gallon of 1% milk was only $2.66 a Gallon!!!

Not only was I surprised to see the price of milk at $2.66/gallon, but I was so excited to see that I no longer will have to spend $3.87/gallon on milk at the local grocery store. In fact, now that I will buy my milk from Sams Club, I will save my business over $479/year!

If you are a Licensed Child Care Provider, you are required by your local Bureau of Childcare to serve milk to the children enrolled in your program for Breakfast and Lunch. Furthermore,  buying your milk from Sam’s Club can really cut the amount of money that you are spending on milk.

I look forward to your thoughts about this blog post and I hope that you have been inspired to save your business some money by shopping at Sams Club!

Money Saved= More Money in Your budget to spend!!
