Not too much going on in Financial news at the Ripples' house. My 2 online classes started on Wednesday. I put $240 on the credit card to pay for them so the money that I would have used for savings is paying off the credit card instead.
Our "extra miscellaneous money" is getting pretty low. Hopefully we can make $62 last another two weeks. This time of year is so hard. With Mother's Day in May, Father's Day in June and then we have about 6 birthdays between May - July. It gets quite expensive even when I try to not spend too much and shop ahead to be able to scout out good deals and clearance items.
My mom's birthday and my sister's birthday are 3 days apart in July. We're hoping to get all the husbands to watch the kids and have a day to ourselves. Thinking of either spending the day at Put-in-Bay or if the weather isn't nice maybe a drive out to Grove City Outlets. I found my sister some really cute items that were on clearance at thinkgeek.com. She loves unicorns and my little pony. Yes, this is my older sister I'm talking about. I got her unicorn ear buds and a pinkie pie coffee mug for, both items only cost me about $15 total.
I want to buy my mom a Curl Deva starter kit. It's about $35. Although I think I might have some money in points at the salon by my house that I can use towards it to brink the cost down a little.
