Well school is back in and the "chill-out" has not worn off. So, now I feel like I am forcing myself to write again, but maybe if I force myself I will start to enjoy it again.??. Kinda like going to the gym... (maybe?)
I also do not care for my new laptop. I know that sounds really bad to
This past week my Uncle Pat passed away (my Grandmother's brother-in-law, for about 65 years) and we flew to Texas to attend the funeral and see family.
I took this picture on the way to Texas. I love them snuggling together and napping. So cute!
Today we just relaxed, I tried Zumba for the first time and went to the grocery store.
We also started a new way of doing our weekly budget this week. I got the idea from a few different places and we shall see how it goes.
I have taken our weekly budget and gotten the cash out of an ATM. I then divided up the cash into envelopes for the alloted amounts for the week.
The categories are: My gas, Ben's gas, groceries, baby food/diapers/wipes, and misc.
I will let you know next week if we were able to stay in the budget. I still have $19 from the grocery budget after the grocery store today, so I can spend it later in the week or add it to another budget. Adam and Brigette are coming to visit this weekend, so I'm guessing I will be going back to the grocery store to get some goodies. :)
Has anyone ever tried to budget this way? Only using the cash in your pocket (or envelope?). I'm interested to see how we do. We usually use our debit cards for everything and never have cash. So...this is going to be a challenge. Wish us luck!
