A lot of our local news has to do with the price of gasoline. People are getting pretty outraged by the high prices.
When you compare the relative costs of the various types of fluids we consume, it turns out gasoline isn't the worst culprit.
Check out this fun list.
D and I do not have a water dispenser at home. We are good with tap water and will use a Brita filter.
I'm not much of a drinker so alcohol is purchased for entertaining. D will have the occasional beer but you will not see it in our fridge often.
Can't say I'm much of a milk drinker either. D is, so we buy it in the 4L bags.
Coffee is one area D will spend on. Whereas I will buy nail polish and lotion. We spend as little as we can on decent shampoo. I do own a couple bottles of perfume but rarely use it.
When you look at liquids this way, all of a sudden paying for premium gas doesn't seem too bad!
ps. I too have lost my replies to comments from the last Blogger update.
