Dinner tonight consisted of a home-made hamburger and two-day old chips left over from the previous meal that I was willing to waste warmed up in my air fryer. Aka a "fakeaway". Talk about "waste not, want not". Whilst my waist will not thank me for it, at least my tummy is full and my budget is stretched a little further until tomorrow. As my mum always says re cheap and cheerful meals "it fills a hole!" This is in direct contrast to those who have no experience of being swept into poverty assuming that we have no budgeting skills whatsoever.
