(Style on a Dime) End-of-school count down

(Style on a Dime) End-of-school count downEach night, for the last month or two, one of my three children has been keeping me current on the end-of-school count down.  Little do they know, I’m keeping close track myself-I am as ready for them to be finished as they are.  We ALL need a break.  My oldest child will be an eighth-grader this fall, but lately I have been thinking about how quickly these 13 years have passed by-and how much faster the next five years will zoom before me.

(Style on a Dime) Low cost hair care

(Style on a Dime) Great deals for $10 or less

(Style on a Dime) Great deals for $10 or lessBack when I was in my twenties, and my girlfriends and I would go shopping, I had one goal in mind: to spend $10 or less on each item. Am I that cheap? Well, basically: YES! What I realized is that I had stumbled upon a principle that would guide my spending habits in a very positive way throughout my life.
