6 Bumps

$20

How far is $20 going for you these days?

I got a check in the mail for $23 the other day and it was what I had until payday and $10 did not give me 1/2 tank of gas, and after buying a few things at Target, (ie. milk, juice, fresh fruit) the money was gone. : (

  • not very far...but if you go to stores that offer it for less, than do that!! Fresh fruit is expensive for the most part though.... but you can always coupon clip!!

  • 20.00 doesn't go far. What you did with the 23 really suprises me especially shopping at target. I would try a cheaper store.

  • If water was your family's primary beverage, you wouldn't need juice, and you would need less milk.
