Budgets do work!

We raise our family of 5 children on a teacher salary.  We have learned from financial mistakes over the years and now have a system that works for us.  Our main budgeting tool is using a cash system for groceries and household expenses.  It gives us more control over daily spending and helps us to set priorities and distinguish wants from needs.  Try it!
