Of course. Up until I was 18 I was broke as hell living with my mom. It wasn't until I was 23 and had a job for the first time that I had what would be considered my own money.

That bites. I remember I had about two dollars for around two months and I was doing my best as to conserve this money as long as I could. Typically in my college days I would go along half the day (12 hour) only having to eat breakfast and maybe bringing some snacks or meals to school that occasionally I would still be hungry and needed a quick bite. Abruptly I ended up using a dollar a month which I believe would be used to buy a chip bag or two set of pop tarts, reason being for being relatively cheap vs food quantity favorable. Although I'm glad those sorts of days are no more, kinda, I never want to every try and feel the stress involved when to use money for the day or save for a potentially more desperate situation in the future

I'm currently broke lol. I'm a college student and I could live with my mom, but her boyfriend and I don't get along. So I moved out on my own. I do have a nice paying job at the most popular hospital but it still leaves me being broke because of rent, bills, gas, groceries T.T but i am happier as ever though!!!

I'm 27 years old and I'm still wearing my high school clothes regularly because I can't afford anything else... I graduated almost 11 years ago.

Most of my childhood.

It sucked. Trying to not be poor now. It's a struggle.

Oh, forgot to add that when I was a child I used to live in a crappy Honda and being able to stay a night in a roach motel was a rare treat.

Yes. I'm broke! I just finished Grad school and lately all I think about was that the right decision. I still haven't landed a job. I'm dead broke, no car, and at home living with Mama.

yep broke, but mainly because friend and I decided to buy a house, after doing the math we would save money on a monthly basis instead of renting... anyways I currently love my job, its pay could be better, but it has some amazing perks (40 cents/mile I drive) and I am going to Vegas with my boss for a week soooo even if I have to live modestly I still manage to find a way to make it.

As a guy who spends a lot of time using Excel, if anyone is interested on how much they spend and what they could save do this little trick (I wasted a lot of money before this lol opened my eyes)

make excel put down section for bills/food/gas/groceries/fastfood/entertainment. You will notice at least I did, that getting coffee here and there 2 bucks gone freakin adds up by the end of the month! and thats only coffee, I started bringing my own lunch, made my own coffee, not only have I saved a lot of money this way (which I am using to go to Anime North in Toronto in May) I am also getting leaner XD (my goal is to go as Rei from Free, and Izumida from Yowamushi)
