It is very hit and miss in there, sometimes you find some nice things among the old Co-op style chic. Was that for top and bottom together? Generally, I have to go with the mix and match ones, needing different size bottom to top half.

Today I spent $186.88, which equates to 2.5 bags of food shopping from the delightful Pak n Save.

This is quite an insightful thread in to other people's spending habits. Only coz my best mate spends on clothes, often, I don't! But I spend on my car and my fags, she doesn't!

Today I spent ...

Approx $20 on lunch with "urban family" difficult to say coz they paid en masse and I will settle up with cash when I next see them for my plate and 2 x coffees!

$30 petrol.

$40 approx for 2 bottle of wine, 25 cigs and some chips and dips.

Considering I did next to nothing and achieved next to nothing ...

Actually there are some accounting irregularities that should have went in as a footnote. It's not that love is priceless, it's just that others refuse to enter into any reasonable negotiation on subject .

so do you pour the wine into a bowl stick the chips up your nose and drink the plonk through a straw, aka the filter tip?

not sure what to do with the dips? they always end up full at the end of a barbie/party so nothing new there......

I leave a bottle of wine at home for when I get home, I take the other bottle and chips and dips to friends, I smoke a few cigs coz it makes me look grown up, sexy and sophisticated ...

mmmm...........started off well with tight-wad heaven and a walk around the estuary, only cost a few packets of chippies and some apples.....

but all went to custard post-exercise:
visit to Subway about $30 as one of my kids has a huge appetite, wonder who he gets that off???
visit to New World - about $20 for some milk, ginger and biccies
and then to the Vege shop which came to $25 as said son is a self-confessed "fruit bat" who also loves cucumber in his lunchbox
