What’s your “pocket money” vice?
Ive realised mine is Maps having worked out I’ve spent over £50 on IGN maps in the last week alone 😯
In fact have checked the map shelf, I have 11 IGN, 13 Michelin Local, another dozen or so misc European maps, 24 Explorers and 22 Land Rangers. About £600 worth…
That and “Jelly Bean Factory” jelly beans. Crack would be a cheaper habbit.Posted 8 years agodominoSubscriber
Magazines – bike mags, fashion mags and the occasional gossip mag. I must cut back but each bike mag gets read by two people and I often pass on fashion mags to the girls at work.
Coffee – cappucinos made with ‘real’ milk not this la di da soya SFB 🙂 Justifying it with a tenth coffee free but I shudder when I think back to how much I spent buying a daily one, have cut back to weekly treats.Posted 8 years agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember
maps – i have memory map, but just HAVE TO HAVE the paper ones – OS, but I like harveysPosted 8 years ago
books – if i even think about something, i’m off to Borders to get a book and read about it. and no, the internet, not even stw can relace a book
coffee – “of the month” from the coffe roasting place in town
cheese – from the specialist cheese place in town
magazines – like books, be it cycling, motorcycling, sailing, fishing, or whatever else I’m up to this month.
beer – proper real ale mind, none of this lager p1sh
whiskey – decent single malts (4 bottles just now in various staes of fullness)AndyPMember
For the last few months each week I have been buying Heat Magazine and Hello. Been missing Blighty a bit and I’ve been really getting into the stories and gossip. They are actually a really good read before anyone gets on my case. A really nice way to unwind.Posted 8 years ago
Doesn’t count if it’s after midday
But if you were to read one over a cappucino in a cafe, maybe like me you would realise what a hit with the ladies it was, and it’s a great way of opening a conversation and meeting new people.
Honestly, you should give it a go. I was feeling quite ill a few months back and just bought one copy. Well one thing and another here I am now avidly reading them each week and meeting new people down the cafes here on Saturdays.Posted 8 years agocoffeekingMember
I dont currently have any vices I dont think. Living alone means I rarely get take-outs, rarely randomly drive to the shops to buy stuff as I cant be bothered. I suppose bike bits maybe, but they’re all justifiable. Dont really buy anything else. I used to drop 4-5K a year on my other car but it’s currently off road awaiting repair.Posted 8 years ago
