Parent Hacks Spotlight: Envelope budgeting, candy control, and more

How was your Halloween? I hope it was good, simple fun. I went trick-or-treating with my 10 year-old daughter and her friend. The thing I love most is that she relishes going slowly. She admires the decorations, the cool, damp smell of Fall, and the costumes of kids passing by. She's old enough to go alone, but she still wants to walk with me, pointing out the best pumpkins and sneaking Reese's into my jacket pocket.

Halloween also marked the end of Christine's and my #HelpWomenAtRisk campaign. A huge thank you to everyone who participated. I'll get back to you shortly with the results.

In the meantime, here are some links to distract you from your sugar high. Have a wonderful weekend (and, if you think of it, pick up some discounted supplies for next Halloween).

    Thank you so much for sharing my pumpkin enchiladas recipe, Asha! I love that your daughter wants to walk slowly and enjoy the journey rather than sprinting around like most kids (including mine) to get the most candy.
