I am still planned on buying that leather jacket. I even put some cereal inside a plastic bag and bought it to work with me last week. However, it also happened to be the first really cold day of the year and, I don't know, something about eating cereal on a cold day just depressed me so I couldn't do it.
Quite honestly, the thought of eating cereal, regardless of weather, just kind of depresses me but I do want to save money so I'm challenging myself to save money on lunch. "Cereal" doesn't actually have to be cereal, it can be metaphor for a cheap meal. Every time I eat "cereal" for lunch I will give myself $5 towards the jacket. I don't even know if the jacket is still available in my size but there are plenty of other things that I want, like this shoes for example:
I have always wanted a pair of wingtips but now that I look at it again, I'm not so sure. Is the yellow a bit too much?
So, the goal is to eat "cereal" to save up for my "jacket". Since I started, thanks Starbucks breakfast sandwiches and brown bagging I have "saved" a grand total of... $15.
Only $110 more to go!
