On a recent typical summer weekday I decided to add up my “savings”.
Check it out!
7 am – got up and drank two cups of coffee on my patio that I made in my Keurig instead of buying coffees at Starbuck’s
9 am -made myself breakfast at home instead of getting a Starbuck’s sandwich or Chick Fil A minis
10 am -walked and listened to a podcast instead of paying for an exercise class
11- went to see my friend’s new boat and helped her a bit instead of going shopping
Saved anywhere from $20-$100
12- came home and made myself lunch
1 pm -Watched a DVR’ed show instead of going to a movie
Did my nails at home
Read a library book
4 pm- Made myself a cocktail
Cleaned, did laundry
Saved $10 (If I had a cleaning service I guess it would be $50 a week maybe?)
Made dinner for my family
By my calculations I now have at least $180 saved up for a shopping trip!
*This post was written tongue in cheek and meant to be humorous. At the same time, I think it illustrates how easy it is to spend money like a drunken sailor when you have time on your hands! This happened to be a day that I spent $0, but of course, I purchased groceries and gas the day prior. Hope you enjoyed it!
