A Moment Of Silence For My Pocketbook
Posted By Alejandra Owens On November 18, 2008 @ 9:22 am In Money & Savings | 348 Comments
I went for my usual before work Starbucks run this morning and while I was standing in line I had a moment of pause. Do I really need a muffin? Aside from trying to be healthier, is it really worth the $1.65? Maybe I should get a grande instead of a venti?
Seems like these days every where I go I’m taking an extra moment to think about my purchases. I’m not planning my retirement, or even working toward buying a home right now…I’m just trying to make my dollar stretch a little further so I can see a movie this weekend!
Where are you feeling the pinch the most? Is it your utility bills? Or maybe at the grocery store (I feel your pain there!)? Share with us and I’ll pull some of your stories up for highlights later today and tomorrow!
