Free fast food dinner!

February 28th, 2007 at 09:42 pm

Hello all,

We had a meeting at work today. After the meeting, when I was passing out the extra food back to the employees that brought it, one of them said, "Oh just throw it away". I said, "There are six burritos left." She then told me if I wanted them, that I could have them. So dinner tonight was on the her. It is always very difficult for me to believe that people do things like this. If it was me, at the very least, I would have frozen the burritos to eat later.

I just can't believe that people are so wasteful.

I remember saving for my first house. I saved bread ties, plastic baggies for reuse (only if they didn't have meat in them). I remember that if I spent more than $5 on dinner I thought I was wasting money. I remember budgeting beans at least twice a week. Some of it was to save money, some of it was because I didn't have a choice. I managed to save enough money that when I got divorced I managed to buy a house with a conventional loan.

Looking back, I think I can manage somehow, to have another $125 in my budget for my daughter's braces. I don't think I'd give up internet or cable TV, but somewhere there is something that I can cut back.

Lately, I've been taking salad and tuna for lunch or I take a TV dinner. I think I could be just as happy making my salad instead of buying it in a bag. I don't need to buy the TV dinners.

Also, I've been checking appliances at night to make sure they are turned off. I never did before. Maybe that is why my electric bill is so out of control.

Heres the quote for the day.

"Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship."
~Benjamin Franklin

    How resourceful we all can be when needed.I remember "back in the day" filling out credit card applications at the stores that were handing out fast food coupons just for applying. Of course,I didn't use my real name.
