I had a conversation with a good friend and “basketball mom outsider” and we discussed our estimated cost of a typical AAU basketball season... and she was shocked! From February to July, every year, we spend money on gym entrance fees, food, travel, hotels, and other expenses. Looking back , I truly don’t know how we did it. Only by the grace of God! Now that my son is playing high school basketball and plays for a sponsored team, the costs associated with travel still hasn’t changed too much because when family of four travels, it still requires money. My friend, who’s a bookkeeper, suggested I look into a few apps that assist with saving money. So, I dived into my app store and found a couple. After researching how easy they are to use, I decided on the Digit App.
How does the App work?
