For now, I’d have to say bye-bye to buying coffee from Starbucks, Caffino or even that darn tasteless caffeine drink in the cafeteria and the vending machine by the lobby. My spending has gone out of control. Although, I can’t blame it on coffee and pastries alone. Carefully looking at my credit card bill, my eating frenzy (lunch and take out dinners) expense amounted to six (6) freaking franklins (could have bought something with that money); add my quick stops to cafes for $80. I can’t believe my eyes when I saw my credit card statement. How can I be so mindless?
So starting yesterday morning (and onwards, for now; I hope) I fixed myself a mug of coffee with a small amount of french vanilla cream. It tasted the same as the ones I buy each morning from coffee shops, or even better. My dining out practrice had to be cut down to bare minimum. I am setting a budget for my everday lunch, too. Dinner, has to be fixed from the comfort of my home.
Sigh, another lesson learned from an accountant who sucks!
