At hard times with the economy families are trying to save money right? Apparently not for the high school ball known as prom. According to a new report, the average family will spill $1,078 on that big day! WOAH! I definitely did not spend even half that. Then again I don’t wear dresses. Does this seem a bit ridiculous to you or is it just me? Personally I have more fun on a random night at Northgate than I did at prom.
