If I'm to maintain my extravagant fruit consumption, the budget is going to need some work. Not too much though, I seem to have lost the will to shop online. Unless it's for Kindle books or things from the iTunes store.
This little idea is sort of budget friendly. Sorbolene pump pack - cheap as chips. Bottle of Coco Mademoiselle parfum - was expensive when I first bought it all those years ago. I never quite get around to using 'dab on' bottles of perfume. They're so fiddly and I often end up losing a fair amount to the carpet. I decided to make my own 'fine fragrance' bodly lotion by tipping my parfum into the sorbolene.
Readers, we have an answer to the great Nestle Diet yogurt stealth downsize.
|Breakfast didn't seem to take as long to eat this morning thanks to there being less yogurt to get through. Thanks, Nestle.|
The customer service department sent me a very succinct email with a very detailed open letter attached. So I wasn't the only eagle eyed shopper to have picked up on the downsize. This is the executive summary. Nestle Diet is the only Weight Watchers Points endorsed yogurt in Australia. There has been a change to the points system and thus, in order to still be a '1 point' item, the yogurts had to be downsized. Well, that sucks if you're on Weight Watchers. Less food per point.
I was pretty impressed that 'rising food production and infrastructure costs' were not mentioned once in the letter.
Well, real life experience about the rising cost of living, handy home hints and an expose. It's almost an episode of A Current Affair.
I can't end without a feel good moment. William and Kate are already hitched - in Legoland at least.
