What’s your broke barometer?

We had one of those WAB chats in the office yesterday and M said she’s so glad to have two-ply loo paper again after a horrid last two weeks of the month where she had to use single-ply. E said she had to give up shaved ham for french polony and S had to buy no-name oats instead of Jungle Oats.

Me? I had to buy T a liter of yoghurt and decant it into his Avent stack cups instead of the usual trays of yoghurt. But I also had to switch to single-ply the last week of March as I ran out of the ‘doggy loo paper’ as T calls it. I know I’m broke if I can’t afford the doggy loo paper.

How do you know that you’re broke?

    Wanneer die kaas, worsies en yohurt klaar raak… Die koekies sal daar altyd in die huis wees, ek sal nooit die geween en kners van tande kan uithou as die koekies moet op raak nie. (Ek sal selfs so ver gaan om koekies te bak om die geraas te vermy :D)

    Watching a movie WITHOUT popcorn. This most likely meant we borrowed money for the movie from MIL when we dropped off Dylan.

    Miiiiiiiiiinki! Jissus. I bought some and this sweet tooth has definitely met it’s match! I can just about only eat one of those. My DH was astounded that I only had one.

    Oh you wooze! I polish off the whole tray (there’s 4 in a tray) in one sitting. It’s the best thing since sliced bread and Dove soap!

    Hahahahaaha! You’re hardcore… I bow down before you… It might also just be because it was easter weekend and there was lots of sweetness going around anyway. Will try it next weekend again when my sugar levels are normal.
