You know your budget's tight when...

...your new favorite restaurant is Target. (All beef hot dog, $1.99; fountain drink, $.01; squeezing in lunch while picking up a 46-pack of Huggies...well, it is what it is.)'re excited because you found a $6.00 bottle of sauvignon blanc that tastes like a $9.00 bottle of sauvignon blanc. lose weight and choose to stab a new hole into your old belt rather than buy a new one--at Target.

Any other entries?

You found a bottle of $4 chardonnay that tastes better than that $6 bottle of sauvignon blanc (true story).

You found a way to use scrap paper...TWICE.

When you finally decide that an ice cream cone counts as "dinner" and you are stoked because of the $1 price tag.

I'd like to have ice cream with $4 chardonnay for dinner. (So, fess up--what chard costs $4 and actually tastes reasonably good?)

I won't give my secret, but I have to confess it was on sale at Trader Joe's (and it WASN'T their "four buck chuck"). I will say that Protocolo makes a decent $6 Cabernet imitation (called, simply, "Red").
