Day 4 of eating on the cheap.
Confession of a mindless spender.
“I ran to the famers market after work to grab my box before I drove 30 minutes away for a meeting. I realized I was hungry, with nothing to eat in the car. I dashed over to the gluten free vendor and bought a $3 scone, and then at the last minute added a $3 muffin. No big deal. I get to my meeting (held at Starbucks), I order my coffee, I look at my card balance, but I only have $0.60, so I top the card up with $10.”
I spent $16 without even thinking. Piss poor planning on my part. I could have munched on the contents of my CSA box, or just packed more food in the morning. The night before I had a glass of wine and 2 cookies for dinner, so I guess today was a slight nutritional improvement.
Food total for the month $42.25.
