What is with these drastic changes in your life. You reverse age and now you went from rich to poor. Never trust genies.


The truth is, no one is real!


BUZZ wrong I'm real and the rest of you aren't

I'd realize I have a premium account to an anime website and I live in a 1st world country...
If any of you people really feel poor how the hell do you have internet? Cable? Smart
Phones and buy Starbucks 3 times a week... Please tell me about being poor when you
have lived in a homeless shelter and all you have eaten for weeks is beans and rice.
Ahh childhood.. People have some crazy ideas about what "poor" is these days.

You can't handle the real me. The reality of who I am would tare down all your psychological boarders, make you question everything you know and believe about the world, and ultimately reduce you to a soul shriveled husk of your former self and all it would take is 20 words or less.

Here are tips from someone who has adulted for a while:

- Buying in bulk really helps. Yes, there are times when it can't happen, but staples can be bought in bulk. For example, a 36 pack of 2-ply toilet paper is $14, but a 4 pack is $2. Yes it's only a $4 difference in the end and yes I used TP as an example, but it does add up over time.

- Make your own food in bulk and freeze any extras in separate containers. I am not the greatest cook, but I can make chili with 2lbs of ground beef, onion, and cooked dried beans. Dried beans are really, really cheap. Add some spices and it's done. It keeps you fuller longer.

- Don't eat out. It was $26 for two of us for 1.5 meals (leftovers). That $26 could have bought 15 bags of dried beans.

- Get a personal loan if you have a lot of bills. You may not need this right now, and these loans can be bad, but I got a $4,000 loan from a site and it had less interest than my credit cards (though not all were cards). I paid off four bills and saved a lot each month, plus it's one bill instead of four. You can call student loan places if you have them to lower your monthly payment, you may also be able to move around other bills so you aren't hit with a ton of bills at the same time. Being an adult sucks.

- Fix your car when it needs repair, otherwise it will just get worse and more expensive later. Many places offer credit cards, so you can get the work done.

- Buy all your clothes at thrift stores, rummage sales, and clearance racks.

- Only buy what you need. This is harder to do, because it seems like X is really needed, but in reality, it does not serve a purpose other than entertainment. There are many forms of entertainment that are free or low cost.

- I have never paid for cable TV. I didn't steal it, I just don't have it. Most places will have the newest episode on their website the next day.

- Ebay as much as you can.

That's all I can think of for now.

saving and hustling

try shopping at your local asian market. All the veggies there are extremely cheap, cheaper than meat even. You might have the scream a little once you go to the fish store or butcher. they are pretty rough
