Metal strip comes off my toe. #TightwadDad 036



Today is the day the metal splint comes off my broken toe!

Is it a splint? Or a stent?

I don’t care. I can feel my sock again.

My Long-Suffering Wife (LSW) is hinting loudly to wash it, but I won’t.

I’ve got more important things to do.

Like staring at my foot and touching it.

Plus my son begged me to give him the metal splint.
(It’s splint. He looked it up.)

Anyway, this is a long way of saying that today would be the perfect day to stop sharing online what we’re spending.

I could look back at what I’ve learned during my injury.

Spend some time reflecting on how we feel about money.

How we’ve come closer together as a family from talking about it.
Maybe it’s just time to end this now.


I am a #TightwadDad and finding happiness for my family with...

- Decaf coconut latte coffee in a coffee shop chain shop.
JOY 5

- Hot chocolates in local independent coffee shop x2.
"Would be a 10 but it was with one dirty spoon."
JOY 9

- Hospital Car Park.
“The splint was taken off.”
JOY 10

- Diesel.
"I am a terrible person killing the planet.
And I love filling up from a more expensive pump, that’s nearer to home."
JOY 7

- Expensive supermarket chain mini petrol station branch: Thai box for birthday meal.
“Though these birthday spends are mounting up.”
JOY 10

- Big supermarket, little top-up shop: Bread, eggs, birthday doughnuts.
“I feel like I'm justifying the doughnuts.
I am.
They are birthday doughnuts.”
JOY 4
"Because the kids were running around."

- FREE metal splint for my son.
“I’m going to bend it and put it on my shelf.”
