Eh, call me a tightwad if you want....

February 20th, 2007 at 04:10 pm

Things I've noticed:

A co-worker(who is constantly complaining about not having money) told me that they went to see Bridge to Tarabithea over the weekend. She went on to say how she "hates buying popcorn and pop at the movies because it costs so much...but DD thinks she HAS to have popcorn, so what can she do?". Hmmmm. Load all five of us up in the van, drive to the movies, pay to get in, pay for snacks, drive home. Nope. We stayed home and watched Ferris Bueller for free. However, I did bring home a FREE copy of the book(think: ACTUAL LITERATURE) from the school library(where I work) and have been enjoying it very muchSmile

Some co-workers were complaining at work today because they've switched the water bottles in the pop machine to a smaller size, yet they still cost the same. Hmmmm. The free water from the tap that I drink STILL costs the same thingSmile BTW, the school has an awesome ice machine with crushed ice. I can't imagine anyone prefering the pop machine water over the awesome ice that we can have for FREE!

Today was payday. Many of my co-workers zoomed to the bank during their lunch break(stopping for fast food on their way back). I ate my lunch brought from home(enchalidas, yogurt, apple) and plan on depositing my check tomorrow which is our normal "bank day" at our house(DH's payday).

Oh BTW, it was a no spend day for me. We enjoyed a delicious supper of meatloaf, baked taters, biscuits, and steamed veggies. I had planned on making meatballs tonight, but I was too lazy...meatloaf is basically the same thing only easierWink

    I won't call you a tightwad. I'll call you a person with some common sense.

    Been there. Coworkers who can't wait for payday but then eat out for lunch every day.

    I use to notice that when i worked. I was the only one that brought my lunch and drank water all day.

    There's a BIG difference between being a tightwad and being sensible and frugal. You are not a tightwad.
