Thomas Jefferson thought of himself as a man of the frontier and was keenly interested in expanding and exploring the West. [31] Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase of 1803 doubled the size of the nation at the cost of $15 million, or about $ per acre ($240 million in 2016 dollars, less than 42 cents per acre). [32] Federalists opposed the expansion, but Jeffersonians hailed the opportunity to create millions of new farms to expand the domain of land-owning yeomen ; the ownership would strengthen the ideal republican society, based on agriculture (not commerce), governed lightly, and promoting self-reliance and virtue, as well as form the political base for Jeffersonian Democracy .

I am getting married in 2 weeks–EEK!
Here is what I have found for our wedding:
*Reception and Ceremony in the same venue- a building on the fair grounds– this saved money on the venue b/c churches cost a fortune
*borrowing centerpiece vases and table clothes from friends
*printed and put together our own invitations- i even when to the post office to see what size the envelope had to be for normal postage
*borrowing a veil from a friend
*bought converse all stars for my shoes- more comfortable and fit my personality– lesson here- buy shoes that YOU like, not what is the norm
*hire a high school/college kid who is studying photography for the pictures- ours cost and we get all the copyrights and the cd
*price match at craft stores
*look for deals if you are getting favors- we got custom guitar picks (my fiance is a guitar player) and i think we spent total for 300 picks- i waited til there was a sale and free shipping
*forgo the tuxes- our guys are wearing dress shirts and ties. the only one wearing a suit is the groom, my dad, and his dad.
*instead of cake do something different like a dessert bar (where everyone brings a dessert) or a cookie bar- we are doing a cookie bar and i have been baking 1-2 batches at night and freezing them. we will have a small cake for the cake cutting.
*check out local printing companies for programs or invitations. most of the time they are VERY reasonable.
*keep it simple!
