How to spend money
Okay listen up, this is probably super boring to a lot of you, especially those of you who still live at home, but remember this anyway because it will save your ass countless times and still leave room for fun in your life.
Never utter the words “I just got my paycheck so let’s go out” Never. It’s the worst fucking thing you can do to yourself.
Instead, save your money at the start of the month like you would at the end. Only pay your bills, maybe put some in your savings if you can, and only get what you need. Nothing extra.
If an accident happens, oh shit, you got some extra cash to help you with that.
But if nothing happens, you have extra cash at the start of the next month!
I call them “fun money” because I use them for fun stuff like going out with my friends, but they are also good for new shoes when your old ones die.
I learned this the hard way when I only had 100$ every month (and remember, things are ten times more expensive in Denmark than most other places) and this system was so effective I still use it to a lesser extent.
Please listen to this 32 years old lady. I promise you, you won’t regret it. It will save you so much stress.
