I am forever buying a snack or a bottle of water when I go out. And every time I do I get so cranky with myself.
There are exceptions when it makes me happy like the banana smoothies from our local cafe or the to die for sausage rolls at the bakery. Oh and let's not forget the doughnuts!
But those things cost $4 and $5 a pop and to do it a few times a week just adds up.
I feel cranky because I can easily fill up a bottle of water at home and save myself $3 and I can put a snack pack in my bag for when I need a boost.
So my monthly money saving habit for September is to take snacks and a drink with me whenever I leave the house.
I will get my hands on a little snack bag. It might be kinda fun to find recipes to make that I can pack in my snack bag.
I predict this will save me at least $20 a week and over the course of a year that will be over $1000!!
First test is meeting up with a girlfriend tomorrow at a park which conveniently has a cafe attached. Fingers crossed I don't succumb to the tasty cakes in the window...
