The other day I was at Target and had the opportunity to witness a mother paying $827.00 to get her daughter set up in her college dorm. I could not believe it! Apparently, I saved my parents a lot of money by going to a local school and living with them. It was crazy. On my way home I was thinking of all the things I could do with $827.00.
1. Pay for a baby's birth. Our responsibility after Eli was born for his medical bills was $751.00.
2. Buy a new couch.
3. Make two car payments. When we had car payments they only equaled $470.00.
4. Buy 48 cans of Eli's formula.
5. Sponsor 21 compassion children for one month OR sponsor one child for 21 months.
Those are just some of the things I thought of. That list, of course, does not include the mindless spending on shoes or clothes that could also take place.
Have a great day!
