Shoe leather express

June 22nd, 2006 at 05:17 pm

Yesterday was a no-spend day -- plus I went to a luncheon that my company paid for -- so it was a good day, money-wise.

Today I packed a lunch in the morning and left it at home. Luckily, I left it in the fridge, so it wasn't spoiled and I had it for dinner. But I had to come up with lunch with only $1.87 in my purse. I decided to walk to McDonald's. (About a 15-minute walk each way). I saw immediately that I was going to order the double cheeseburger for only $1, but there was no drink under $1. So I just got the cheeseburger. I found a bench in the shade and ate my burger while it was hot, then walked back to work and drank water from the fountain.

I walked because I am trying to save gas as well as money. After work I walked to the gym for my strength-training workout (also about 15 minutes away), then back to my car. It was a lot of walking in hot, sticky weather, but I feel like I really made an effort today.

    The McDonalds around here give you a free cup of water if you ask. Don't they do that there?

    It seems like in the past when I have asked for water I was directed to the bottled water on the menu. Anyway, I assumed they would not give it to me. I didn't want the embarrassment of saying I didn't have the $1 for the bottled water.

    Wow, I have ordered water with every meal I have ever gotten at a fast food place because I love water with ice and I am trying to diet and don't need soda. They can't charge more than a dime or so. (I have never been charged)
