A postscript to today’s shopping adventures. Mr. Husband did the party shopping for our Sunday BBQ and although he kept strictly to the list, and got great buys, nonetheless, we are left with a mere $65.97 to finish the month. With 12 days left, nearly two weeks with three meals per day for five people, that could get interesting. I have asked my family members to bear with it and let’s see how we do. They are, needless to say, already planning where they will go out to eat when this “thing” is over.
Changing the world, one family at a time. Or not.
