You’re not imagining it, half term really is bankrupting you.
Here are eight things that are slowly burning a half-term-sized hole in your pocket.
1. Unwanted treats in the trolley.
Forget trying to go to the supermarket alone this week, there will be company.
2. Educational days out to museums and galleries.
To balance out the feeling of guilt when you put them in front of the TV for eight hours.
Always the most expensive (but completely essential) part of parenting.
4. Heating bills.
In our day we just had to put on another cardigan.
5. Endless snacks.
They’re on seven meals a day by the end of the week.
6. Craft and DIY materials.
Isn’t this how Pinterest parents pass the time?
7. Cleaning products.
To stop the house from being completely destroyed by said Pinterest attempts.
It’s going to be a long week.
