Day 4: When I cave in and buy a banana


The psychology of not being able to buy whatever you want is interesting. I am not starving or hungry. I have eaten rather well for the past few days on the $35 Challenge for Anti-Poverty Week. Last night for instance I feasted on a very nice baked potato with chicken meat (from two chicken wings from the freezer), salad and cheese. The other day I had scrambled eggs on toast for breakfast. I've been munching on crisp chilled apples as a snack.

But today I really wanted chocolate. Sugar. Anything bad for me. And that's when it happened. I used $1 of my precious funds to buy a banana.

Yes I know, that's ridiculous. I did say I wanted chocolate.

Now I have $2.30 going into the weekend.
