Day 003: Money, Money, Money

097day003 With the recession in full swing, you'd think I'd be going out to eat less. So untrue. I find that in many of my circles of friends, the activities of choice are either eating out or going out. Both can be expensive, even if you do it my way. Ordering the cheapest meal and not drinking respectively. But then there are hidden fees like paying for the birthday person's meal, tax/tip, paying extra for people who don't pay their whole share so you're short and everyone else needs to pay more, cover...etc. Yikes. Then I think, "I'd rather not eat or go out if it means I can buy a new coat" =)

i love to shop. For now I'm satisfied to shop online, put things in my cart and never checkout. (it's a step up from window shopping, I think)
