My MoneySaving Mistake

I’m having one of those days that we all get, where everything feels a struggle and the world seems blue. So instead of staying in MoneySaving Towers, I nipped across to the Westfield shopping centre opposite to treat myself to a tasty, healthy salad for lunch in the foodcourt.

When paying for it the chap serving asked “do you want a drink with that?” and in my tiredness I said “yes, a diet coke please.” Then he handed me a can and I paid without thinking. As I walked to my seat I checked the receipt to find I’d paid £1.50, when very annoyingly there’s a Boots right next door, with cans for roughly half the price. Not a big difference, but frustrating.
