Q&A with DeannaSB

Wow, love it. I wish I could take classes, but they are far away and so expensive, especially when you have to add the travel and lodging expenses. Wish they had classes here in NY,
DeannaSB answered:
Ya I know I cringe when I think of how much I spent to go to the class vs how much supplies I couldve bought with that much money! But they do monthly payments and I did some research for a good but cheaper hotel ($67 per nite) I did have to travel 10-15 minutes to class but I travel 25 min to work daily already so that didnt matter to me.
