Senior Pictures Update & When did I start making so much less than I need?

June 25th, 2010 at 08:09 am

Thanks to FT I decided to call a place in town that rents tuxedos and takes pictures. They do senior pictures!! They have a package with what we need in it for $150. I am so excited! The good part is that I am not on any timeframe. I can wait until I get the money to have it done.

I realized yesterday looking at my budget that my expenses are far outweighing what I make. I don't know when or how that happened. I used to have money for the grocery store and entertainment. I guess that since I have become so intent on paying off my debt that I am overextending myself. But wait, that is only $100 per pay period. Come august, I am $700 short of my budget. I don't think that just the $100 debt payment per paycheck caused that. That only accounts for $300 of it. When I moved the only bill that I added was a water bill for $70 a month. Don't think that caused it. It could be the cheer payments, but I am doing the fundraising thing and haven't had to make a full payment yet! I guess all of these things added together could have caused it, but I am not willing to compromise. I have to find a way to make more money. I hope the applications I filed yesterday yields a call soon! I am desperate to stop having to take money from my parents.

My daughter went to the county fair Wed and Thur night. She wanted to go again tonight. She made money babysitting yesterday. But my mom told her that going three times is just non sense and she needed to give me money toward her cheer. DD decided not to go to the fair and to give me the money she would have spent to go toward her cheer. She has now pur $35 toward her cheer payment. $15 more to go until she gets to the $50 I told her she would have to come up.

    That's awesome! You saved over $200 on the pictures!

    I think if more people stood up against those absurd prices, they would come down. But people just pay them blindly. Yay FT!

    (I didn't purchase a single school picture this year. I am boycotting the school photographer because they are so obnoxious).

    If one of these senior pictures is to be submitted to the yearbook, could you find out the criteria for the photos and just make them yourself? I'm sure the photos are handled digitally now, so you could size your photos to exact requirements using your own software. Heck, your senior could make a business of it himself. Get a couple of tux coats and shirts from Goodwill to use? I don't know, maybe it is too much trouble.
