I had two meetings in different locations downtown today, and didn't want the hassle or cost of moving the car, paying for parking, etc. I thought (repeatedly) about driving to somewhere convenient, parking the car and taking the subway, instead of leaving the car in the driveway, walking to the bus stop, and taking the bus. But ultimately, I did the right thing. Very much cheaper! (I would eventually get reimbursed, but would have had to shell out about $30, plus gas). And I didn't want to put that much money out there, even if I could claim it back.
So I took the bus, and left the car at home.
Also, missed the free breakfast before the first meeting. Thought seriously of grabbing something on the go, but resisted. They served food at the first break, at which point I grabbed one small muffin and a coffee. Hours later, I've gone to the other location, attended my other meeting, and am on my way home. And I realize that one tiny muffin and a coffee are not enough to sustain me. I must have almost stopped at least a half times on my way home, but I resisted, and made myself something nice to eat when I came in the door.
I've also agreed to cover for someone else on Sunday afternoon, which will bring in a little extra cash to throw towards my debt.
