Buy or DIY
« on: March 14, 2011, 09:50:32 AM »
Kinda like Save or Splurge, but do you make/do it yourself or buy the finished product. General (cookies - make 'em myself, DIY) or specific (dinner last night - ordered a pizza, Buy).

Kind of both- don't have a hose, bucket, etc- so I have to go to the place where you put money in, but you have to still do it yourself

Buy. But only because we have the best curry house 3/10 of mile from the house and I just can't compete with it!

DIY as I'm sure hubby would love to do something like that.  Don't give him any ideas though!  We've got enough sound / computer gadgets and wires and extension cords all over the place as it is!  ::)

Our house is on shared property so the housing association employes a guy.
