We've been talking to our kids about being a little more thrifty. Neither likes to talk about it and each can come up with 1000 reasons why they desperately need whatever it is that they purchase. Lorelai can spend more money than one can imagine at Walmart or Target. When questioned it's always "shampoo and conditioner." She must have the cleanest most well-conditioned hair in the world. Generally Legare doesn't do too bad, but as a full-time grad student, he starts to feel a little pinch toward the end of each month.
Last week when I did my Frugal Friday post I received the following comment:
I think Legare needs a bailout!

I was talking with Legare on the phone while reading my comments so I asked...
Me: Legare, did you by chance make an anonymous comment on my blog?
Legare: Me? No...well....maybe...OK...well....yes, I did. LEGARE NEEDS A BAILOUT!!!
Me: Good luck with that pal...let me know it works out for you...
Oh heck...who am I kidding. Let me introduce myself...I am Belle, wife, mother, educator and ECONOMIC STIMULUS PACKAGE for my kids!
Where is my checkbook?
