~ How I Saved the Week:
Giving up fiddle lessons for a while.  The lessons weren't too expensive, but I wasn't playing often enough to justify paying to rent the fiddle.
~Worth It!
Wai Lana Yoga Mat
Amazon has some colors for $18! I paid $40 for mine and would do it again in a second!  They are a fabulous mat, latex free and really grippy without feeling sticky!! I love mine, and you should try it out if you don't have a mat already!
