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!
