At the start of the month I declared that for Febusave (which I keep typing as Februsave, maybe next year the men’s version can be FeBroSave?) I would pack lunches for work and cut back on buying coffees and diet cokes…
I did quite well on the lunches front. I think I bought lunch once this month – and it was a day where I was due to take part in a group lunch at work, took one look at the Pide on offer, with all its cheese, and wandered out with someone else who couldn’t face that hehe.
Caffeine intake did drastically reduce, but not completely. As did the chocolate and snack buying at work – helped along by feeling hideous at eating cadbury’s and the work “shop” dissolving.
Extra expenses for this month such as text books for uni, registering for the conference in May, and buying pretty dresses weren’t factored in. But they can be supported, plus I’ll get the conference fee back soon from work.
All in all, I’m glad I stuck to the taking lunch thing, even if I might need a break from tuna for awhile! (I did have it for lunch today. Sheer apathy!)
Still to organise our actual dates to go to Europe. Getting there!
