3 Expenses You Overlook
Until I finally decided to do a full breakdown of my expenses, I believed bottle was such a small expense. After calculating $4 x 52 weeks = $208, I realized that there were other alternatives to spending that amount every year, I have decided to get a water filter from Brita and a water bottle from Catacki to change the way I track my drinking and also purify the water.
While I love to cook my own meals, somedays I just don’t feel up to it. I know a lot of us go through the same thing sometimes, so some days I go out to eat, and just sitting here and calculating $10 for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner for a week I realized that I would have spent $150 on food in one week not to mention Friday night drinks and the nice restaurant on Saturday with friends. So I am adopting a new approach to my cooking, a post will be up on that soon.
When it comes to shopping; especially clothing, I buy most of my things in the offseason and I make sure I buy timeless clothing; things that won’t go out of style anytime soon, I buy summer clothes during winter and vice versa, the only downside to that which I don’t really consider as one is the waiting.
PS: I am by no means telling you how to live your life, the opinions expressed in the post are mine and what I am trying to do.
