I’ve recently come into some financial situations, and not a day goes by that I wake up and I think about all the cool things I’ll have to sacrifice in order to survive. I then realized that I’m not the only one out there. Struggling to survive and having to give up their 20 year old couches and hats made in the 20’s. I’ve decided to lay down some hints that may be able to keep you in the main, and your change in the bank.
~STOP BUYING CIGARETTES
Seriously I get it. I’m a cigarette smoker. Once upon a time I thought lung cancer was cool too. I thought to myself, if I’m going out? At least I can say I smoked a cigarette. I realized that being able to buy 20 large fries instead of being in pain all time is way cooler.
~DON’T BUY CABLE
Sorry to a future cable company I might ever write ads for, but everything is on the internet. I know that triple sports package with the extra built in face cams are tempting, but really. It’s on the internet
~DON’T BUY EXPENSIVE BEER
You don’t actually like how it tastes, drink a couple of those Keystones and party. At the end of the night, I’ll be as drunk if not drunker, and still be able to buy a cab home.
~DON’T WASH YOUR CLOTHES
Now I’m speaking more towards struggling college students and people trying to come into something in the world. Most of you live in an apartment. Some apartments have community washers. Wear your clothes 5 or 6 times, switch it up, Inside out, wear the sleeve as a neck. Trust me, you will save many quarters.
~DOLLAR MENU MAKE YOU HOLLAH
Look, those awful and tasteless cheeseburgers, drowned in ketchup and mustard are cheap for a reason. They’re also food, and food keeps you alive.
I know that giving up all the advantages of being a broke college kid will be let down. Walking around downtown and flaunting your vintage sweatshirt is nice, but it’s expensive. If you want to keep your cool status at “100 wit yah boy” then take these notes and learn how to save for your pocket, and save your swag.
