I am not the type who likes non spending days. This is not the king’s style. As I have probably said before I do not like squandering money but on the other hand I am not sooooo extreme to try to wipe it out from as many of my days of the month a possible. What I do like are what I call OBBs (Opportunites to Bag a Bargain).
If I am out there spending, whether online or in store, I keep it modest. In this castle modesty is a virtue when applied to splashing cash. However, at the same time I want to think that I got the particular item or service for a good price. Ideally the best possible by my kingly standards. Therefore, I consistently devote bags time before a purchase for research.
This is usually online but could also involve seeking advice from friends, relatives and/or colleagues of me or Queen Quidbags. We might even ask Prince Pennybags for a view if it is anything remotely technical that we are thinking of parting with hard-won gold for. In fact, I am currently working on finding the best option for a suitable tradesperson to visit Castle Cashbags for a boiler check/service. As I am sure you can imagine, Castle Cashbags can get cold in the winter, especially the dungeon. Dragons are expensive to feed so we rely on gas central heating.
I am also looking at an exciting (maybe even romantic) weekend trip away with Queen Quidbags very soon. Once I have found the best option on that I will make sure I pay via one of the excellent cash back sites that are around these days. On the rare occasions when I forget to buy stuff using cash back sites I feel genuinely gutted. For about five minutes. The King loves a bargain nearly as much as lovely Queen Quidbags.
