There was a snafu. Yesterday I did have to borrow ten bucks from a friend to get me through until today. I did find myself digging in the change reserves. But at the end of this last pay period, I discovered that I have to spend a lot more time and effort carefully watching my money.
But even today, after getting my check? Even today after cashing it and feeling like Biggie Smalls with a wad of dough in my hand, I knew there were priorities.
Bills, bills, bills. So yeah – I’m still crunching. But I know I have to save up my money for Turkey Day with the family.
So after heading to Wal-Mart to get the money orders and put enough on my prepaid debit card to pay the bills – even while still having some decent money in my hand – I just went straight home. No shopping, no fast food restaurants.
Because I found a great deal on sweet potatoes at Walmizzle (25 cents a pound! DUDE!)
Tonight, I’m going to the bar. I’m bringing my ID and ten bucks in cash. $5 for the cover, 5 for a couple of cheapass beers, and that’s it.
Other reasons paying in cash makes me cooler than you:
– My wallet is fatter! Everybody needs a fat wallet.
– I never have to say “shit, I’ve gotta stop by the ATM!”
– I don’t have any NSF fees. HAW!
– My paycheck does not get eaten up, ever. Ever ever.
– I get to say “Got change for a hundred?”
See? Cash only. It’s awesome.
