I didn’t even make it through the first day of not drinking iced coffee at work without paying for it. ”How, though,” you wonder??. As you all should know by now, I want to save money (and save you some too!). That means not wasting it on coffee. It’s a foolish use of funds and benefits no one but the coffee shop (although the caffeine buzz ain’t bad). I struggle to follow through with what I know is best is simple(it’s always simple). Taking a walk out of the office is my coping mechanism with all the stress. Keeping calm, cool, and collected is a requirement of my job. And let’s be fair, allowing yourself to breathe and unwind, even for just a few minutes and at the expense of a few dollars, is an important step in saying sane!. Ten dollars a day to keep me level and employed is a small price to pay, in my opinion.
A few questions
I have a few questions for you now. First off, what should my punishment be for failing the monthly challenge? “Reward for excellence; consequences for failure” type of thing. Don’t hold back on me; I can take it. Or perhaps you could recommend some of your own saving strategies, one that doesn’t involve coffee? If so, what are they? If there are any that I like, I will do them as a 30 days challenge for myself and write about the experience here!
