re: Do you have to submit a time sheet? - Sigma
I understand time sheets for jobs with billable time for multiple clients. But I've just run into time sheets for management and even VP level positions that have nothing to do with billable time, supposedly due to the SOX Act. It's just weird. ...

Family of three, with a toddler. We spend $1000 a month at Kroger, plus roughly $300 eating out. Your $500 figure seems impossible, especially the way grocery store prices have increased in the last few years. Couponing can help, but we don't seem to have the time right now....
