Well, all good planning must come to an end. We had planned on having about fifty adults for our Fourth of July barbecue, but that number has, er, blossomed a little. In any case, I blew my budget out to $175. :( The best laid plans of mice and men...
I'm super-busy today getting ready for my guests, but I will definitely post pictures either later tonight or tomorrow and walk you through my expenses. My husband thinks that we still did pretty well for a large barbecue, and that I under-budgeted initially, but I'm not sure.
Happy Fourth of July to you, my very dear Daily Cheapskate readers. In between the burgers and the fruit salad, please take a moment today to give thanks for our freedom and our independence. May God continue to bless our wonderful country.
