1 meal a day...usually late lunch. Saves $.
(but sadly it doesnt do me good for slimming down)

If your lunch is about $3 - 5 like at my office area and your dream gadget cost $2000 plus like a D300 for example. You might as well give up that dream gadget...cos by the time you can buy it with what you have saved...it will no longer be the latest. hehe..

Which can be a good thing really. After the buy buy buy bug has time to fester and get cured from your brain, rationale thoughts returns and then you start to really ask yourself if the dream gadget is worth buying or was it a bad idea after all. heheheheh. Credit Card will never give you that "second chance" to reconsider thus I think you end up with more regret after the purchase then you do saving up for it.

Not eating doesn't means you will slim down. In fact, the body will start breaking down muscle tissue ( not fats ) to provide energy to sustain the body. This is because muscle 1) takes up more energy from intake 2) easy to break down then fats.

So not eating is not a good idea really. :confused:

On the topic thou... depends ba, if its really worth it then i dont mind staving for a few days maybe weeks ;)

agree with sammy888.

it takes too long to save up on lunch money to buy a dream gadget. and to risk your health, its not worth it. ;p

tell me about it man... before 9am is shockingly expensive!.. $2 surcharge..go under PIE $1.50 go under CTE $4 !!!...$7.50 on top of my $10 ride!....Sheeshshhhh! That's why I gave up taxi ride to office for the last few years unless very important. I don;t know about anyone saving their lunch money for a toy but I know for a fact the saving I get from giving up my daily taxi rides to office, I save a heck of a lot more!. I can buy a new lens in the $500 dollar range a month...even better ones if I save up for just 6 months. But of course I don't lah chey!...I am immune to the buy buy buy bug heeeee...better to spent it on fast women heheh....kidding lah..immuned to fast woman too....heheh...aiya..just save the money lah...already have to write off ever getting back my cpf

Brudde...if you pay that much...you are one of those I think can justify buying a car.
Emm, getting car at least will spend $1.2k per month, including installment, petrol, carparks, insurances, tax & Servicing.

Not forgetting that when you got car, friends can just jio you at 10 plus for quick drinks. Everytime you go out for supper means spending more.

With cabs, max 800 - 1000 per month.
