Photo of the week delivery
I have added a new category to our budget: photo-of-the-week delivery! This baby's namesake, her 93 year old great-grandmother, is lonely in her new city. Though I've always mailed notes, videos, and pictures, my efforts were sporadic. Now that I've dedicated $8 a month to my budget just for correspondence, I'm sending a notecard with a couple of photos each week. She's thrilled about it. $100 over the course of the year is a better use of gift money than in two big lumps at birthday and Christmas. Besides, it keeps me on my toes about documenting and printing our own family photos, too.
