Prom Time

We had prom dress success.  We didn't have bank account success. The dress was over budget by about $200 (yes, that hurt).  They're so expensive!

I think teenagers have it worked out. After you go to a few stores and try on several dozens of dresses, parents are just so tired of shopping they're willing to pay more than planned. Teenagers are smart that way.

Her date is looking at a tuxedo vest and tie set, trying to decide between a limo and a corvette, and then they're set.

Thankfully, the school is having an after prom party so the kids will stay safely off the roads.

Zoom R16

Oh no! While window shopping online (it's the cheapest way to shop!), I found the zoom r16 that my husband was looking at before. It's $100 off. He has always liked his ZOOM products.

Save money. Save money. Emergency fund. Emergency fund.

OK, I feel better. He'll understand. He wants our savings built up just as much as I do. However, I won't show him the price on this anyway...just in case.

You're supposed to have many months worth of savings in your emergency fund. We have a ways to go...not sure we'd make it the week at this point.  Have to keep saving!


Emergency Funds: Do you have one?

I think it's time to sell some of my amps. I'm thinking I'll sell those, buy a more inexpensive amp for my daughter (like the bugera v5 from guitar center) and put the rest of the money in our emergency fund (yes, we FINALLY have one of those) or our vacation fund (haven't started that yet).

It's described as "banshee league fury" so what kid wouldn't want an amp that screams while mom likes the cost?

We really need to get our emergency fund built up. I don't like what's going on in the world right now and I'd feel better if we had a safety net. I want to build that up a little faster than we have been but I don't want to give up EVERYTHING to do it. I don't want to pinch every penny...just enough to make me feel a little better.

Do you have an emergency fund?


Gluten Free Diets

I've been thinking about gluten-free diets and whether that kind of "diet" actually does make people feel better. I've also heard and read how that type of diet helps people with thyroid disease. Anybody have any experience? Does it help? Did you feel better? Are there any good recipes so food tastes good gluten-free?
