1. I used my cash envelope for Kid # 3's birthday and with some careful planning I came in under budget.
2. One way I came in under budget with the birthday envelope is I cashed in some points that we had on a credit card ( keep in mind my hubby is not 100% on board with Dave Ramsey) for a gift card to use towards her birthday.
3. I bought a half price Starbucks Groupon to use when my in laws come visit. My father in law loves Starbucks. I went through Ebates to also earn a little cash back on my purchase.
4. I bought a family pack of chicken legs for 49 cents a pound. I put 6 legs in the freezer to use as a meal. I boiled 4 to use the shredded meat and chicken broth for some future meals also.
