The stickers for DD are kinda pinkish green. We have a limited amount of spending money but it was only $2. Whenever we go to the office supply store her picking out one set of stickers is a tradition. It can technically fall under craft. And honestly I have a really hard time dragging my daughter around in and out of stores to spend money in ways I want without giving her an opportunity to have some say. So I can live with this.
The critical mass fliers aren't something we planned for but they are important to me and for a good cause. So I can live with that, too.
I'm really liking having all this cash in my wallet, btw. (I should take it out!) By buying/packing up fresh fruit for DD for after swimming class I've saved $$$$$$ and we're all healthier. Yay for creative, positive solutions!
