Today is not only weekly shopping day, but monthly errands as well. As I finish the afghan, I have much less yarn needed to buy. This is fortuitous because the budget is so tight. While it's convenient to have all that shopping and driving done when I have Grandma to babysit, it's brutal on the budget to have five grocery weeks in on month, plus five Saturday errands to budget for as well! We won't be preparing for Christmas in this month's budget. Holiday baking may have to be scaled back this year, due to the difficulties in October funds. Even so, we are so much better off than before we planned and budgeted for things.
