what are you doing in this economy to save $? Tell me!
Truth is: my eyes are sometimes bigger than my bank account, this Europe trip is happening in three weeks(!), dating can get expensive (men like to eat A LOT), and this economy just plain sucks (I cringed when I saw my last retirement account statement). It's Thursday and once again I'm planning to forego dinner with the running group to save $10, but miss out on a few hours of chatting with the group. My logic is I already went out to dinner (with the girls, all of whom are in the running group) once this week AND bought thai takeout on Sun night with the man friend.
Other ways I've been attempting to save include:
-skipping the occasional Americano/latte from Starbucks
-attempting to bring my lunch every day to work
-not buying alcohol at dinner ($4 beer or $7 glasses of wine add up. Plus, I could get an entire six pack or bottle of wine for that amount.)
-not renewing my gym membership this term and becoming a little more creative by hopping on the bike, going for long hilly walks (b/c my bum knee won't let me run), and using my on demand exerciseTV workouts
-avoiding Target at all costs
-forcing myself to only buy items on my grocery list (usually fruits, veggies and protein)
