    I have 3 scenarios in mine, 2 are under $5 and follow from my scenarios last week and there is a 4 transaction beginner scenario that is $7.46 oop. The good thing is all 3 levels leave you with $13.99 in RRs for next week if you want to continue along!

    Thanks so much for sharing Alyssa! Sorry for rambling, I’m a bit excited about the scenarios this week. :)
