Working the budget
For a while now, I've been tweaking the household budget, cutting where I can. My monthly cut/color salon appointment was this past Monday, when I learned that the prices had gone up, effective Jan 1. The stylist I've used for decades had fotgotten to tell me, so she immediatey appolgized, stating that the old price for just this month for me was OK, new price will be in effect for Feb. The increase is $15, equally what I used to give her as a tip. Compared to what most salons charge, this remains affordable. Just not happy about the increase.
