Beer, Cider, Wine or Spirits?

leave a comment »

I don’t mean to make assumptions . . . but I’ll assume for the sake of this post that anyone reading DailySpends will enjoy the occasional drinkypoos.

There are generally 3 types of occassion (staying in, going out, celebrating) when I will want to drink, and 3 drinking decisions that I will make in each situation (what I feel like drinking, how much I want to avoid getting drunk, how much I want to spend).

Today I’m musing over budget drinks . . . the most bang for the buck if you will . . . beer, cider, wine or spririts.

I generally have two favourites for budget style home drinking:

Booths Claret – £3.99 a bottle. A lovely versatile red perfect for everyday drinking
SuperBock – £3.99 for 6. A fab (and strong) Potugese lager

There are other options of course (I hear Frosty Jack is Trying2Save‘s recommended tipple 😉 ) cider, spirit and mixers. The lady who runs our local Fish ‘n’ Chip shop seems to swear by 1.5ltr of Spars finest Vermouth, but I’m not convinced.

Anyway. Just by writing this post I’ve clarified my favourites. Booths Claret or SuperBock. Good work!

28.02.08 – Flowers, Beer & Soda Water

leave a comment »

One look at the ‘Tags’ section on my blog will reveal that beer & alcohol are one of the most prolifant purchases in my spending regime. . .

What’s interesting though is that I didn’t realise that until I started this blog. So I’ve had a look at it now and am ready to re-dress the balance. Plus the fact I’m 28 today and need to slow down a little 🙂

Spends for yesterday:

Train fare – £14.50
Breakfast – £1.50
Lunch – £1.99
Flowers – £10.00
4 x beers – £3.00
Soda water – £0.95
Total Spend – £32.00

Let’s keep it real eh? Month end . . . severe lack of funds . . . depressing trip to the docs. I need some relaxation in the form of beer. So here’s what I’m guessing as spend for today:

6 x Beer – £5.00
1 packet of pistachio nuts – £1.49
Fuel – £15.00
Total – £21.49
