Kids on a budget
No I mean literally... I'm trying something new here with the short ones. The kids are running their own budgets and paying for their own stuff out of an allowance they are expected to manage under budget or too bad for them.
Not spending all their money before the end of the month isn't the only challenge, they've also got to account for what they spent during the month in a detailed categorized log. We're using a shared Google doc for this purpose. We shall see how this works.
