:: Dollars and Sense :: 

The issue of frugality is oft-discussed and practised.
By me, anyway. And now, especially.
In the face of rising fuel prices and that 
Inrevocable anxiety that everything will continue to rise and rise
And rise. 
Dinner conversations tend to revolve around frugality.
"We should eat cheap; food court henceforth."
"No buffets. No restaurants."
Commuting conversations tend to revolve around frugality too.
"'I'm glad I'm not driving anymore."
"Let's just take the MRT."
Domestic conversations, naturally followed frugality as well.
"No lower than 24 degrees, please."
"Why is that fan on when the aircon is already in use?"

It is a good thing that food frugality goes hand in hand
With a healthy lifestyle.
A moderate food intake means less bingeing. 
And so, the latest initiative of the journeyman, is to 
Carry \this little 250ml water bottle.
Water - a substitute for the usual lunchtime
Or dinnertime coke light, or green tea. 

It'll still take me light-years to save enough to buy
My choice property, but
At least I'll feel closer to an astronaut.

we're all not getting paid enough, seriously.

if i do on my air-conditioning, it'll be at 25 or 26, and on low. i'll just do less with blankets.

naked, you mean.

*runs away*

so much for food counts, we still throw food away everyday..

so where is your choice property?

actually it would be interesting if you can tabulate how much you save.
it would be very motivating findings? ;)

it is good to do so..
im also starting to get more conscious of such things..i think the world needs a little more action...and it starts with Us..

what property are you eyeing for? hmm.
