I am so naughty but treasure hunting? Seriously what would you do?

Ok so  I went treasure hunting today when I was supposed to just do groceries I had to use what little is left of savings.You see after 3 trips to Brisbane with Miss 4.5 and  then clutch problems and 2 new tyres for our Prado ($800 tyres and $600 clutch  thanks very much ) we have eaten into our so called savings.Payday is tomorrow today we had empty cupboards soooo I went shopping for  groceries with a detour or 2 or 3 on the way ha ha.I was good I did only 3 oppies not all 8 (pat on back ha) anyway grocery shopping is soooo boring and treasure hunting soooo much fun!! I did have to put a bag of potatoes back tho ooops lol.Yere smack me I admit I am bad will buy potatos tomorrow.
Anyhow now I have dobbed myself in and made myself feel even guiltier (not)
