Whine Without Wine

Welcome to my Friday night.

Simple yet sophisticated.

After an extremely long and tiresome work week I was exhausted by the time I got home. I was too tired to meet up with friends for a quick happy hour drink. I was even too tired read my book. However, I was not too tired to open up a bottle of wine and pop a mini bag of popcorn.

Such a treat!

I bought this vino at Kroger and was a little iffy since it was only $3.99. Yet, I'm on a mission to find inexpensive wines that taste as if they cost much more. The end result of this Tisdale Chardonnay? Mission accomplished. I am quite the wine connoisseur and was pleasantly pleased when this medium-bodied Chardonnay hit my palate. It has the perfect amount of oak and bite to it. My mind was screaming we have a winner! 

If I would have gone out with friends for one glass of wine it would have easily cost me about $6 plus the tip. I think my quiet evening in was much more entertaining, relaxing, and easy on the wallet.

Glass of wine: $1
Bag of mini popcorn: $0.33
Watching Say Yes to the Dress: Priceless

Budget friendly night of fun!

Question of the Day

Do you have something that is inexpensive yet nobody would realize it?

Besides finding tasty treats on a budget I also love finding decorations that are quite the deal. I wrote about dollar decor previously. I love it!

I whine when I'm without wine.


  1. Cheap & Tasty is a game I play at the store these days...I love Tisdale! It's inexpensive and oh-so-yummy!

    1. I'm always on the hunt for a bargain! It makes everything taste that much sweeter :)
