1. Have you finished your shopping? Didn't really shop this year. Bought some elastic to finish the Christmas jammies; that's about it. Still have some groceries to buy for Christmas Eve dinner.

2. Did you have a budget this year? Nope, never did.

3. Is school finished for the year by you yet? If not, when is their last day? The charter school takes 3 weeks at Christmas so Dylan was out Dec 11th. The public schools (and Alex's preschool) are out this week. Everyone goes back the first Monday in January.

1. No. I still have to go to the grocery store and PetsMart. Oh and the CVS (I need shampoo). Oh, and I need to get gas at Costco.

2. $14.95

3. School isn't out for the year until the 2nd week in June.

1. Have you finished your shopping?

Yes

2. Did you have a budget this year?

I have had the same budget for about the last 10 years. I don't worry if I do not hit is exactly, try to stay within a couple of hundred dollars either way. This year I was on the over side.

3. Is school finished for the year by you yet? If not, when is their last day?

The last day of school for the local school district was Friday. It was also Friday for the school district that DD2 teaches in. I think DD3 last final was Tuesday.

1. Have you finished your shopping? YES!! DH wrapped all gifts too :)

2. Did you have a budget this year? Yes, always do. I used my holiday bonus this year from work (120% of my weekly paycheck) ONLY.

3. Is school finished for the year by you yet? If not, when is their last day? Wednesday is their last day. School closed today though for the 2 ft + of snow we got this weekend.
