So last night I opened a can of Nectar From The Gods...aka Diet Coke. I only drank about 1/4 of it and when it was time for bed, I couldn't bring myself to pour it out like I usually do. See, I'm a pretty wasteful person. I admit it freely. Okay, I do recycle. I recycle like a Mo Fo. But I dump a lot of stuff and spend money stupidly. A lot. A LOT.
But last night as I walked to the kitchen sink to dump my nectar down the drain, I stopped myself. I don't know if you noticed, but the Captain and I? Kind of broke at the moment. So I stuck a paper towel in the open can, put it in the fridge and drank it this morning instead of opening a fresh one like I usually do. Diet Coke is my morning coffee and I hate flat soda...but I did it because dumping it out would have been like dumping 50 cents.
We need to majorly change our lifestyle...it got serious the day Captain Carl lost his job. Wicked serious, y'all. So I figure I gotta start somewhere. I guess saving and finishing a can of Diet Coke is my start.
So, my bloggy friends....this is where you come in. I need your help. I need ideas! Suggestions! Advice! Please, help a sista out and give me some tips for smart spending and saving.
Give it up.....
