A recent poll said prom can cost as much as a thousand bucks these days. And, obviously, there are lots of families who can't afford that kind of prom pricetag.
Luckily, there is a wonderful non-profit organization called Operation Prom that provides dresses and tuxedos to students who don't have the money to spend on the dance.
Not only does the organization provide dresses, but they also provide vouchers for girls to get their hair and makeup done as well. Here's to many more happy little Cinderellas! (Huffington Post)
Just Asking ... How much did you spend on your prom? How much are you spending on your kid's prom? Are you able to afford prom at all? How are you cutting costs to make prom happen?
