    • Sports items
    • Medical – Physicals / Vaccinations

    • We already mentioned school clothes, but you might need some things for the new season, whether it’s personal or for career.
  • Christmas
    • It’s going to come up whether you plan for it or not. Consider setting aside a little cash each check to use for Christmas shopping!
