With two birthdays this month, one party, Mother's Day, driver's ed, and an unexpected washing machine repair, we came to the end of the money in the grocery envelope, with several days of the month left to go, and no available envelopes to "rob" from. I love challenges like this! Last weekend I spent considerable time preparing the food we did have for future meals, so as not to waste any. Also, this makes dinner preparation go much more smoothly during the week if some of the steps have already been done. I enlisted the children's help, and we got a lot accomplished!
