I drink at least one daily. As a result, I feel healthier and more energetic. Best of all for my diet, I don’t crave chocolate.
All good, except buying the drink spotlighted one of my annoying habits.
I calculated over time the $5 cost of a four-pack of drinks. That’s a $1.25 a drink. I can easily drink one or two a day. That’s more than $15 a week, $60 a month, hundreds in a year.
Keeping our budget in mind, I’ve been shopping around for the best deal, even at stores I prefer not to shop.
Bargain hunting is good, right?
But if it’s about saving money, why will I pick up a candy bar at the register and add it to the grocery bill without a thought? And order a slice of chocolate mousse cake without asking the price? And suggest a chocolate malt three nights in a row at our favorite ice cream shop?
Notice an unhealthy pattern here?
Now that I think about it, I do the same with exercise. I scrimp on the price for a month’s worth of fitness, then eat fast food a couple of times for that same amount.
Are your priorities straight when it comes to spending?
WRite wHere I’m supposed to be – Sometimes it is silly things that sober us up to how we’re prioritizing life. Since I want to live well, spending well is a succulent, I mean, sensible place to begin.
