Family, Fun and Frugality

Hi everybody!  So sorry it has been a while since posting - too many irons in the fire this past week.  To get right to it - I am glad we are on this shopping thin track now more than ever!  After seeing some of the changes headed to our country, I am convinced we need to be as careful as possible with our spending.  I need to address something we are spending money on.  The way we have set our system up, our spending limitations mainly involve tangible items - stuff!  We are allowed to spend money on family outings such as a trip to the movie theater or tickets to a show.  In fact, one of the reasons for embarking on this journey is to have the money to do more things together as a family.  So, in that vein of thought, we purchased tickets to a Roy Clark show.  You see, our 2-year-old is obsessed with the banjo and has been since he was about 18 months old.  However, I have been very careful with some money I received as a gift for Christmas and used it plus some birthday money to pay for half the cost of the tickets, which totaled right at $140.  We feel this is a worthwhile family outing that will allow us a great family memory.  The memory is worth a great deal more than the actual cost of it!
