Still on budget!

I still have my $25.00 bucks left in my bi-weekly spending budget. I promised the kids that if I could fit it in our budget we would get pizza for dinner friday night plus some soda.

I think that is the liberating part of having a budget. I no longer feel bad for splurges like pizza. If I am within our budget....then no problem! I have really become better at planning our meals and budgeting for excursions based on our schedules. When I made our menu out last Sunday, I left Friday blank in hopes that nothing would prevent us from affording some pizza. We almost never buy soda so a couple two liters and 2 $5.00 pizzas from Little Ceasars and we will be set!

We will probably watch a movie on netflix too! I love easy, fun, cheap family nights! Who knows....we may pull out some board games as well!

So what are you doing for fun this week?
