My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Party time!

Well, it's Friday (thank heavens). Today's Brain Bender has a bit of a party feel to it...

Rachel went out shopping for her birthday party. She spent half of the original amount plus $5 on a very special cake, half of what was left plus $5 for paper plates and cups, then half of what was left plus $15 for soda. Then she had no money left.

How much did she start with?


And poor Rachel, having to throw her own party and going broke to boot! That's no fun....

Anyway, the answer will follow in the comments like always. Happy Friday!

Update: Today's smartypants sticker winner is jvh from Showcase of a Shattered Mind. Yay! And thanks for playing everybody...
