Ran out of coffee

April 2nd, 2009 at 06:32 am

I briefly considered giving it up and drinking water, then I went and bought more coffee. nz2.50. I'll save on something else. No point having piles of money if I can't have what I like with some of the excess.

I have these periodic savings binges where I stop spending on virtually everything to save money, but that's not sustainable long term. I actually enjoy spending money on something I want, even if Depression-raised family voices keep telling me I should stick it under the mattress, in case I need it more later. I have no intention of being a multimillionaire centenarian full of regrets for how I deprived myself. So I'm planning to go on a retreat at Easter after my Lenten frugality.

    hmmm, i hate running out of coffee! DF and I have an espresso machine and usually only favour a couple of brands of coffee, so whenever we see them on special we stock up. usually they are about $9 for 250g but a few weeks ago DF found 250g for $5! so he bought three packets Big Grin we are down to our last one now though, just opened it this morning.

    I have no worries that I will die with too much money. Smile

    Having money saved is great as long as you still have the little things you enjoy. It is when you have the things you enjoy that you can't really afford that there are issues.
