    I have been looking for the last week for a wedding dress - i am not getting married yet but i found something i really liked and the price i didnt want to let it slip away.

    Its 19.00 + 5.00 for alterations and 14.00 for delivery

    A dress made to my shape and size for only 48.00!

    I have in a week saved up enough cash to get me though christmas

    I have 200.00 to get me all the gifts i need plus some decorations. I have been making salt dough decorations all day and i hope they are ok after painting as my snowmen look awesome. i am proud of those.

    Also went to the bank to put all my change in the bank. I put in 43.00 which is an achievement im impressed on how much change i had. Now to start over again saving the pennies.
