Originally posted on Facebook: Financial planning Tip Jan 3, 2015 - 002 Limits!

 Coming to the close of the year, on the spur of the moment, I bought several types of dried peas which I now plan to cook. 

Now this purchase was not planned, based on the last check of my cash flow, so there I am, trying to revisit the use of the funds since this was a purchase which was excluded from the budget. 

The options are:

  • Try to make a dip, 
  • soup for several days (healthy eating) package some of the soup to eat when I do not feel like cooking, 
  • Peas and rice combo next week and then
  • Back to soup! 
Midway through that period, I will redeem my Massy points for some vouchers and splurge on something to make the meal more exciting, or I will pull out the pastelles or cornmeal cakes which I have placed in the deep freeze and use them! 

There is a limit as to how economical one can be at any point in time!
