Today I decided to protect my finances.
I've been travelling all week on behalf of big company. I have a modest per diem. Instead of blowing it on a $24 hotel breakfast or a $50 hotel dinner, I decided to save money.
I drove around and found a European grocery. I bought fresh bread, european chocolate and various european style cold cuts for a sandwhich. Thus I had my entree and dessert. I then bought six leaders of bottled water - to avoid the $8 bottled water charge at my fancy hotel.
I should have rented a video at blockbuster and watched it here on my laptop, but that was an afterthought.
Bottom line is, I might havce some surplus stipend thanks to the grocery store.
PS I am no longer accustomed to living in cold weather. I have goosebumps on my goosebumps.
