1 Mostly sane, most of the time.  Thu, Dec 22, 2011 11:27:28am

If my memory of school lunches is accurate, your twins would thank you for buying groceries and sending lunch in with them.

Do it for the kids—because Cheeze Zombies are cruel and unusual punishment.

$40 is the cost of a tank of gas.

Not many families would starve for the lack of 40 bucks but it would mean a lot fewer fruits and fresh vegetables, more noodles and potatoes, less milk for children, cheaper brands, and, ultimately, another lowering of our already perilous state of nutritional health.
Over a few months, it could mean putting off needed maintenance on the family car, with lower mileage and greater accident risk.
Taking money away from people who need it is always a losing proposition. The public pays sooner or later, whether in higher health care costs, higher insurance, or simply the effects of more stress for millions.

That depends on what you’re paying for gas, and how big your gas tank is. Where I live, $40 buys roughly 11 gallons of gas. My tiny Honda has a 14 gallon tank.

It would actually be $80 per paycheck.

We get paid twice a month, not weekly.

(It’s the same amount, though.)
