While many of my peers are renting their party buses and spending hundreds of dollars on dresses, I’ve decided to skip prom.
Don’t get me wrong, I like the idea of having an end-of-high- school dance, but honestly I’d rather spend my money at about a thousand other places than at our high school prom.
After hair, makeup, nails, the dress, the tux, boutonnieres and corsages, a party bus, dinner, and the actual tickets, a high school senior can spend about $600 to over $1000. It turns out to be quite a lot of money for only one night.
The dresses that were chosen months in advance will be left in the closet...
