65 Cents

June 12th, 2008 at 08:41 pm

Before I leave for work in the morning, I make my lunch and fill up a travel mug full of coffee.

I had a couple days off and I guess that threw off my routine. This morning I forgot my coffee! So, I decided to use the vending machine at work for the first time ever, and shelled out 65 cents for a cup of java. Necessary expense? Certainly not. But I decided it would be better than going through the entire day without coffee.

I remember back in my early 20's I would have spent the money without even thinking about it ... I probably would have been buying a cup every day, in fact. Now it's a conscious decision, every time I choose to spend money.

Oh, and speaking of spending money (a bit more than 65 cents this time) ... DH has found what he thinks is a fantastic deal on a foreclosed house, and on paper it looks good. We are going to take a look at it this weekend. We'll see what it looks like "in person" ... it's in a neighborhood we like very much, and it just might be a real bargain, but it's a bigger house than I was hoping for.

    I am that way about Diet coke. I must have one in the morning. In an effort to save money, I made a glass (platic cup) of Diet Coke before I left the house so I wouldn't stop and buy one. As I am getting in the car, I spilled the entire thing. So I had to stop and clean out the car which cost me $2. It would have been cheaper just to stop and buy one! Oh well, life does give you little challenges doesn't it?
