friday 5 for june 28: austerity

from here.

When you have to cut back on spending for a time, what are the niceties you’re least likely to give up even though you could (or should)?
i guess like electricity and internet. 😛 i do give up lots of things, but i would not give up those.

In leaner times, what are your go-to “famine foods?”
it used to be saimin or pork and beans. oh, and vienna sausages. i still do the vienna sausages.

How do you keep yourself amused or entertained in times requiring great frugality?
my computer 🙂

When was the last time you had to go into austerity mode?
i’m currently having to–just had to pay son’s bus fee which i did not get awarded financial aid for this year, and that’s a big chunk of money that they want all at one time (no paying off little by little). right before the holidays, too. sigh.

What’s a necessary expenditure others might consider an extravagance?
i guess that would be internet.
