    I'm a man of few pleasures. I got this laptop as a gift (a year's worth, birthday, Christmas and all that) and take most of my pleasure from physical pursuits. So yeah, all of my money goes to food.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    i'm the same way- my money either goes towards

    1) food
    3) art supplies
    2) tattoos
    3) crossfit classes

    it's nice not to spend money on gas, cigarettes, and new things

    Gas here just went up to $1.38/L, or roughly $5.52/gal. Its just mental.

    I buy as much as possible from local farmers, I support them and they in turn help me save money - we both benefit by cutting out the middle man. I buy as much as possible in bulk, and search online for deals before I go shopping.

    Paleobird, which Asian supermarket do you go to? I'm in San Diego too.

    I'm in California and the highest I've ever seen is a bit over $5. They say we may be back at that point by summer. My last fill up was $4.30/gal. Sad thing is, our transit is so underfunded and there's so much sprawl that it would cost me the same for a rail pass as I spend on gas and my commute would take twice as long.

    Our local H-Mart is an Asian superstore of awesomeness! the produce is not to be believed with more mushrooms and peppers than I even knew existed. Plus, I have been welcomed by very friendly and helpful people which put me at ease in spite of the initial weirdness of being the only non-Asian in the place. I did finally figure out where all the 'rest' of the animal goes. The muscle bits go to Safeway and the entire rest of the beast is at H-Mart! hooves, ears, tails, snouts, you name it. I know where I'm going for offal! Cannot recommend it enough!

    I hear that; 28 to fill up my Honda Africa Twin 750!

    Since when did a motorbike cost nearly 30 quid to fill up?

    Still at least it does 55MPG in a way that still puts a smile on my face

    I go to different stores for different products. WalMart for stuff like napkins, frozen veggies, fresh veggies and Wegmans for my oils, fish. I don't clothes shop or shoe shop. I will buy breakfast maybe once a week, dinner once a week but I do get coffee on a regular basis.
