- black sequins (I know, I finally fell for the tricksy trendsetters)
- chunky silver and yellow bracelets together (it looks surprisingly good)
- oversize white cardigans (I'm spying on pieces designed by Inhabit, which mainly consists of sweaters and cardigans and the dreams of stay at home mum's, librarians and lonely window sills
I have $2.75 and I enjoy acting like the first person in the world to ever be low of money.
Honestly, dramatics aside, I don't find it depressing. I've been through this many times this year and at the end of last year for some time and I only found it frustrating when bills or bank fees or automatic payments came along, other than that, I enjoy searching for ways to stretch a dollar.
- The .99 cent 'eggs, toast and potato' meal and one of the Gray's Papaya (hot dog) places are really not worth it. I recommend spending a little extra and going to The Great Bagel Shop/Place where they have a dollar coffee and $2 egg on a roll or a bagel for .92 cents.
- My ideal cheapy dinner is my Shrimp-Flavoured Ramen Omelet. OH. EM. GEE. It's amazing. I'll post a picture of it later, but here's what you do!
- Break up your Ramen, cover in water, and put in the microwave for 2 minutes.
- Break 2 or 3 eggs into a cup, mix with a fork, add Shrimp flavouring (or any flavouring), mix and stir in pepper if you like.
- Oil a frying pan well and set the heat to high, pour in the mix so that it fills the pan then...
- Pour out the water using a colander (strainer) and toss around your noodles for a bit, then pour them onto one side of the omelet
- Make sure you've nudged the sides of the omelet to keep it neat!
- Then use the spatula to fold the omelet over the noodles and let heat for a little longer
- And then wah-lah, whenever you think its cooked or your stomach grumbles louder, means it time to slide it on to a plate.
- Add veges if you have them and then munch!
