A family of 7 are about to start a budgeting experiment.
The Parents have decided to give the 5 kids a budget of $50 each to plan for 2 meals a day, lunches and dinner…for 7 people.
“…the kids think money grows on trees and cannot understand why our food budget is hitting the $500 mark weekly…a taste of reality hopefully will do the trick”…sigh!
They have to plan, prepare and cook.
But not breakfast they have cereal galore. Milk they need to provide and they drink that by the truck load. They plan their lunch and dinner menu, I take them shopping.
“I want them to have a sense of ownnership and responsibility” the mother said.
There are 7 two. Adults 15, 14, 13, 12 & 10 yr olds 4 Boys and one young lady.
“It is exciting to see them excited. Let’s hope the enthusiasm sticks around for week 2.”
