I set a record

According to the bookstore at college I set a record for the week. $1272.00 for a single purchase of books at the bookstore. It would have been higher except they didn't have my son's $172.00 engineering book or D3's $77.00 math book. The only upside was I only had to buy one english book since all 3 kids have the same class so I actually saved $150.00. GO ME!!!

My response is not p.c. So I shall downgrade to the more acceptable, ugh!

Incidentally the random letter generator agrees with me as my letters are "shtst"

Isn't the price of college text books outrageous?????

DS starts his Master's in January. Glad I'm not paying for the books. ;-)

That's a record I neeeever want to beat. I've been buying college textbooks from ebay for the kids, and so far, so good. The best deal was $28, including shipping. What a bargain!

College is so-o-o-o-o expensive. We put 3 kids thru with one more to go in 2 yrs. Hopefully she'll pull a hefty scholarship.......I'm praying hard down here.........LOL
