My harm­less lit­tle flut­ter and the many ways I save

Pilbara News - - Opinion - Ken Sali­gari, Ex­mouth

They reckon Aus­tralians are ad­dicted to gam­bling.

I like to have a bet on the nags at the week­end.

Some­times you win, some­times you lose. But I don’t buy take­away coffee at $6. I do buy take­away beer. I don’t waste money on din­ing out or take­away food, nor do I buy tick­ets to the footy or shows. I don’t buy new clothes, my friend cuts my hair, I don’t own a mo­bile phone, iPad.

I wear Dun­lop vol­leys … you get my drift.

To those who reckon gam­bling is a prob­lem, take a good, hard look at your­self. Then tell us about “ad­dic­tion” and how to spend money.
