Back in 1994...

It used to be that before making a purchase over $30 my husband and I would consult as to whether we really 'needed' the item... That was when the kids were small and a trip to the toy store wasn't so much about them begging me to get something for them but instead involved me looking for an item that would keep them occupied for a while so I could indulge in a little 'Me' time. I remember $30 was always the limit for said item.

As my van was sucking up $ after $ of gas this morning I was struck with the notion that I should consult with my husband before I filled my tank... Because it went WAY over our agreeable amount of $30... Gas prices really suck! I'd much rather be buying toys.

AMEN! i remember when we had to 'budget' for an oil change. last week it seemed like a bargain since it cost $15 less than a tank of gas.
