Budget self grade: B+
We came in just slightly over budget, but not bad at all! We did a great job of saving money on food and accommodations in China, but definitely splurged on activities, including one too many cheap massages, which is essentially what put us over. Oops. We're finding that it's a lot easier to shoot down a big expense then several small ones.
