There are 3 things in life that even when money is really tight I won’t give up. Or rather they are the last things I cling to with tooth and nail and will only swap for cheaper alternatives at the very last straw.
When you live life like I have to where every penny is counted for and accountable, you get use to not shopping for brands. You automatically go for the cheapest option every time on everything. It’s a way of life.
But there are 3 things I won’t swap for cheaper alternatives or skimp on. It has to be really really bad for me to swap these in.
1 – Toilet Roll – There is just soo many reasons. For starters its thinner, you use twice as much and the rolls are smaller. Blowing your nose could cause a national bathroom disaster. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination for the other end. Needless to say, I will go with a good brand of toilet roll.
2 – Coffee – yours might be tea a thing, but mines a coffee love affair. I don’t drink or smoke and going out socially is about zero so I don’t think it’s too bad having one vice. Coffee. It gets me going in the morning and keeps me going through the day. I am rather sensible and only rarely drink it the evening. To me, cheap coffee is not friendly at all. Plus I am convinced it turns your tongue a funny colour and if it does that to your tongue I don’t want to think what it’s doing to my insides.
3 – Hairdressers – I have changed my appointments to every 8 weeks or even 10 weeks to sort of compromise but there is nothing like keeping your hair in good condition to make you feel better when you’re skimping on everything else. If hair cuts really are off the budget I do compromise for a nicer shampoo.
What 3 things can you not give up ?
