For me, one of the hardest parts of sticking to a budget is overcoming boredom. I'm always home with the kids so even going out to Taco Bell can be a thrilling change of scenery. But we've been finding ways around our meal-time mundane by eating over our fire pit in the backyard. These meals aren't ever fancy, but they are certainly fun. And we always finish our campfire meals with S'mores, of course.

Howdy!
