Our visitors have left, and I am now back to my regular shopping routine. I did spend extra this week though, as my middle son is turning six next week, and I have promised him a big party. Thankfully I have been shopping year round for the best party deals, so I do not have to dedicate a lot of money for the party. My goal is to keep the party under $100, without having to sacrifice on anything.

I bought my son’s birthday gifts at the January Target toy clearance sale, so that is another cost I do not have to think about now.
