I have about 10. I use most of them pretty regularly. I think there are maybe 2 I haven't used in the past month. I do find myself searching online more often than using a book but, I like having the books to look through too.
a. Who you are: I'm Andrea, aka. Cyrusmama, SAHM to two beautiful boys. Cy is 6 and J is 19months. New to keeping a log of our spending b. Where you are going (your financial goals): Very short term, Have money left over at the end of the month to poke back for Christmas. We are also planning a small trip in the middle of the month and need to have some extra for this. Longer term, have enough saved to help us if dh is unemployed this spring for a couple months...

He said ok and had a blast. We did buy him a smaller gift to open though. For Christmas, we do about $100 a piece for the boys. This year we've done less. I bought J a Sesame Street fish tank $5, an Elmo lamp $5, and a John Deere tricycle $20 at a consignment sale. I've bought Cy...

We've been doing them with Cy for a couple of years. He loves them and has my MIL sew all the patches on his apron They are a little easy to break but I think for him its more about the building than the finished project, ya know?
Joining in a little late too, and I have a decent sized list. Dh: no ideas yet, but I know I'll find something Cy: knit eyeball juggling balls, wooden mailbox to share with Jax, face plate Jax: above mailbox, face plate, and ??? Mom, Grandma, Grandma, & MIL: fingerless mitts, and tea towels maybe FIL: knit hat Mom: Felt glasses case Oldest brother and SIL: ??? Middle brother: Incognito maybe? Other middle brother: Mandrake if I have enough time Youngest Brother and...
I have heard the cost of materials + 1.5 x's cost of materials. If you bought the yarn on sale, I'd go with the original cost of the yarn.
