Like many of you, we’ve been getting creative with our budget lately. I’ve bumped up my extra-careful shopping habits in an effort to keep the boys fed and my secret-underwear-drawer stash of chocolate supplied. It’s a pain to have to think about every little expense, but we still have it a lot better than most. Sometimes, though, I miss those extra little splurges. Today the gracious state of Florida has stepped in to help. Do you see that picture? Yes. It’s real. Our wise state government has printed and mailed freakin’ coupons for the lottery to every person in Florida. Now I can have bread and milk for my children AND fund my retirement with 2-for-1 lottery coupons. Sometimes I wonder if I’m in some sort of surreal dream. Coupons for the lottery????
