I say that as a praise to God and in celebration that we have made it through the pay period.
Our envelope cash system had $662.00 in on 9/29. My wife shopped and fed for our family of 5, we had two birthday parties with gifts to buy - My wife continues to amaze! She walked into the toy store and said "I have a $20 budget, show me my choices". She is playing to win!!
And, that darn jeep needed an alignment, not an unknown cost - so there really was no stress there!
The great news is We still have $135.00 in cash today!
Truly, living on a budget and making each dollar sit down and take a number certainly makes you feel like you have more money! It is making a difference in our lives!
