Money To Live

Budgeting gone a bit too far

Filed under: Uncategorized — by moneytolive @ 5:00 am

A friend was formerly affiliated with a peculiar non-profit. She organized a regular lunch series and was originally told not to worry about the budget for food – order as much as you need, and we will cover it – she was told.

After several months, she was called in and was told that the pizza budget was dwindling. Could she change her order? Well, of course. She was surprised and had no intention of burning through the allocated food budget.

Upon further discussion, though, she was told that there was plenty of money left, just not for pizza. Couldn’t she order sandwiches to use up the sandwich budget?
