Just a quick update on Day #1 on the new budget.
I spent a total of 35¢
On what, you might ask?
A re-fill of coffee from our staff coffee pot. I usually spend $1 to get a decent cup of coffee in our caf (whole milk, a splash of vanilla syrup or caramel flavor to boot!) but this was adding up to 5 – 7 dollars a week. So, I’m either for-going the second cup of coffee, or going to the staff lounge and using my spare change to get a classic cup of joe. Sometimes if I use spare change, I don’t really feel like I am paying for it!
Alright – I will keep you posted on my budget progress. Tomorrow night I have to go out to dinner before the Boston Pops performance… and Friday night I am going out for drinks and dinner with two of my best friends. How to do this on a budget… stay tuned!
