My friend was in my kitchen the other day and I was making our main meal. As she passed me the tube of tomato puree out of the fridge she commented that it was empty. I got the rolling pin out of the drawer and rolled it up a couple of times and got over a teaspoon more out of it. She cracked out laughing, shaking her head saying “only you”.
She might think I am mad, but it is little habits like this that have saved me money over the years, and enabled me to retire early and live on a small pension. Each little bit of money not spent, means less money needed to be earned. Now who is bonkers?
