      I don’t think you’re nuts at all. I USED to do something similar

      with a large envelope. Since my son moved out I’ve become seriously

      less cautious. Think I’ll steal your ziplock idea. Thanks for

      sharing.

      bag that I would carry in a larger gallon ziplock bag that also held

      my shopping list and menu for the week. My friends thought I was

      nuts, but you know, I always stuck to my budget. And saved over 30%

      in the process! The kids are a few years older (and everything is

      more now ) so we’ve had to raise the budget to $70 groceries and $30

      for durable goods. But I still use my “budget by ziplock” process and

      it still works!
