I decided to dip into reserve funds (actually part of the food budget for later in the year) to buy a few tables. We need tables, as it's getting impossible to assist with homework or reading without tables. Other than these two tables, all we have are two oval tables for use with the kindergarten children. These tables are easily stored so we can utilize our small space as best we can when we don't need them. For $50 dollars I can buy another table. We need four more as soon as we can scrounge up a few dollars to buy them.
