🤣 I’m liking that frugality. That per diem is yours to keep, you can eat well when you get home 😂.

Thats a pretty generous spreading of both PB and J. Wastage on the napkin and residue on the knife.

Next time, make your per diem go further by applying just a light smear of each. Like a watercolor painting. Yw
