Hi, my name is Samantha, and I have a problem.
A money-spending problem.
I have NO money, but I insist on the Dunkin' Donuts coffee or that sandwich from the market or that RipStik (that I love and have no regrets buying, but I mean come ON. Winter is coming), and so on.
In fact, I was more "in the red" in my bank account than I thought. $350, to be exact. And utilities to pay. You know, LAST month's utilities.
Sure, I have two paychecks out there waiting for me. One on the Upper East Side from babysitting, and the other lost in the huge building that I work in now (they lost it, not me). It won't cover all this, though.
Oh, and I have books to buy this weekend, as well as a MetroCard to get to classes and work and such.
AND my job is seasonal. Tonight is my last shift.
I am very, very lucky that my parents are paying for my school right now. People have student loans like CRAZY and owe way more than $350. I'm still entitled to my own financial stress.
Any tips on how to, you know, NOT spend money? Better yet, anyone have a spare million to hand over?
