Prom on the Cheap for 2 Broke Girls


                            Prom on the Cheap for 2 Broke Girls

  Why do folks put so much emphasis on the Perfect Prom?  It's just a dance!  

My girls have no dates this year and do not care. They made arrangements to hang out with their friends at Prom instead. This is not the single most important event in their life. However, that doesn't mean we didn't make the most of what we have!
   I have taught my 3 girls to coupon, watch for sales, and always check the thrift store 1st.  I love the one we shop at.  We shop, as well as donate to it often.  Arc Value Village
  Life is not about what brand dress you have or the kind of shoes you wear.  In fact I have purchased new items there as well as used.
I found some pretty cool items over the years.
