Take Away Food – Plays havoc with your budgeting!

with one comment

My Wife’s pregnant at the moment which is fantastic! What’s even better is that she’s craving all kinds of take away foods.

Last night it was  kebab & pizza. A Milano’s special kebab (donner, chicken & lamb) and a 9 inch Hawaiian pizza. I really enjoyed it – it was lovely.  Hang on in there . . . there’s a point to the story.

I managed to save £10.00 yesterday by going without something I could have done with, but didn’t need. The intention was to squirrel it away in my draw at work so by the time next Christmas comes around I’ll have a nice little purse to buy some special presents for my family.

Guess what happened? Yup, you guessed it! That £10.00 didn’t get squirrelled away, it got spend on that Take Away instead. My present fund is now down to £0. Time to start again!
