$ MONEY SPENT OUT OF POCKET
- Admission to zoo, 1 adult + 1 child, using a pair of $1 off tickets from KidStuff coupon book, bought as school fundraiser, $25. [Please note, I have bought that book for years, when Fig was in elementary school and during P.'s years. I think this is the first year that I've been organized enough to use it, bring it, check expiration dates, etc. At zoo and Subway, I had coupons for other Dad/our friend to redeem, too.]
- Lettuce to feed the giraffes, $3.
