Spending Wisely

A budget is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went. Saving is a very fine thing to do. Especially if your parents have done it for you. Money and women. They’re two of the strongest things in the world. The things you’d do for a woman you wouldn’t do for anything else. Same with money.

I’m stuck between “I need to save money” and “You only live once.” This is my daily struggle. It’s not your salary that makes you rich, it’s your spending habits. I once had a guy at work making twice what I did, yet he always came to me to lend him money. I became a loan financier and gobbled up my deserved interests.

I was meant to be rich, I can tell by the way I spend money. God didn’t give me this expensive palette for me to be mediocre. It doesn’t make any sense that everything I genuinely crave costs borderline ridiculous amounts. If you owe someone, due respect is never spending money when they’re around.

Anyone that tells you money is the root of evil doesn’t have any. I have a problem with people who don’t respect time. You see, time is money. Or at least my time is. Your time could be worth piss, and that’s okay. Minutes are worth more than money, spend them wisely. Every time I put money away for a rainy day, it starts raining THAT SAME NIGHT!

My wallet is like an onion, opening it makes me cry. Every time money leaves my account, I bleed like a girl on the first day of her period. I currently have enough money to last me the rest of my life, unless I buy something. Don’t tell me what your priorities are. Show me where you spend your money and I’ll tell you what they are.

Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like. Can never be me though. My debt profile is a consequence of my insatiable taste for premium. Making money is often more fun than spending it. Spending money affects my mood.

Am I free tomorrow? No, I’ll be expensive still. They say love is more important than money but have you ever tried to pay bills with a hug? “Gottfried you owe me $290!” “Alright, come here let’s hug it out.” Staying in bed all day is a way of saving money. So is having less friends with interests like going outside. Money talks…

But all mine ever says is ‘goodbye’

  1. When I first saw your post I read Spending Whiskey. I know. Only a drunk would think that. I needed whiskey on Monday. I dragged my way through thinking about “my money” which everyone thinks is alotalot, but really, it isn’t. I had exactly the same idea. Stay away from shops. Don’t buy any wool this month. Don’t give anymore charity. Remember what das said when you asked for money for the poor. “Tell that nun WE ARE THE POOR! ” He said,
    And I tried not to strangle myself with wool. My old age happiness depends on my ability to invent the weirdest knit garments that would easily pass as high fashion on those weird fashion shows where the sad by request models walk down run ways as if they are show casing marvels. All the fashion designer is another human trying to find a good enough reason not to give up and become homeless. Happy day, though, in spite of the full moon and lunar eclipse, MIT warnings of dire something or other, and American elections and climate change. God knows, I need something to do to stop me running down the road screaming, the end is nigh! Apparently said purple garment is fabulous! Phew! Happy week dear man. Be blessed with fortune, not associated with making money, just having enough of it. Just for today. We are like alcoholics. Living on a just for today plan not to go broke.
