Cheap as Chips – Monday & Tuesday

leave a comment »

Monday & Tuesday (3rd & 4th March) have been cheap as chips really. Had a nice days holiday on Monday and went to one  of those 2 for 1 type pubs (food was rubbish but the pub & service was nice).

Took the kids to the indoor play area – which they love – I now ache all over.

Tuesday, back at work. Brought lunch in to keep the costs down.

Mon & Tues Total Spends:
Playground – £3.75
Pub lunch – £14.75
Train Fare – £14.00
Total Spend – £32.50

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
