here we added up all the bills monthly ones and yearly ones. we just
added them all up as though we paid them every month, so taht amount
will go into the saveings account and earn intrest untill time to be
paid. it was easier for us to just put groceries, personal care
products, and clothes, and meds all into our grocery envlope. because
i shop at a 88cent store for every thing i can. and resale shops. and
doller stores in our area and a farmers market. leaveing walmart and
target for last. we lumped every thing together because sometimes
we dont need something but do need something else worked out for us but
doesnt for every one.
