Friday Gathering: Indian Summer Edition (can I say that?)
My daughter has requested a fairly expensive Halloween costume. She wants to be “Kit” from the American Girl book series. Hopefully I can convince her to accept one of the low cost costume ideas from Lynnae at Being Frugal. I am also taking suggestions.
Jason, one the writers at Bible Money Matters tells what you need to know about money management. As GI Joe used to tell us “knowing is half the battle”.
Craig at Christian PF puts a price tag on what it costs to raise a child. Take a look, it might be less than you thought and his numbers are closer to what my family spends rather than the numbers given by “conventional wisdom”.

Have a great weekend! Remember, don’t just spend money, spend time with family.
