  • You steal all your toilet paper from public restrooms and use napkins from pizza places as Kleenex.
  • Your diet consists of dumplings, Ramen noodles, and the sandwiches you buy right before the store closes that are half off.
  • You have had to make the choice between buying cigarettes and buying food. Cigarettes won.
  • You say that not having cable is a "lifestyle choice" and you "don't watch television anyway" but you go over a friend's house to watch True Blood or the Real Housewives.
  • You drink water at the bar on the 14th of the month and then run to the ATM at 12:01 once your direct deposit went through. Then it's time for a real drink.
  • You take the bus.
  • You know when things go on sale at the thrift store.
  • A career in porn/escorting/stripping is a serious consideration. (Yes, your mother will find out.)
  • You plan an entire weekend around drink specials and open bars.
  • All of your furniture is from Craigslist.
  • You net more money from eBaying your possessions than from your actual job.
  • You cut your own bangs and you think they look good. (They don't.)
  • Your mattress is on the floor.
  • You have gone out on a date with someone unattractive for a free dinner.
  • You spent more than 17 seconds trying to figure out your neighbors' Wi-Fi passwords so you don't have to pay for internet service.
  • You don't live in a loft, you sleep on one.

I don't agree with the bus one...  I take the bus and make a good amount of money.  I refuse to pay $25-30 a day to park my car when I go to work.

As I read everyone post I can only smile because everything sound so familiar.  We were working on good jobs and making lots of money, but that changed.  For a few years we were struggling.....

I now own my own business and I work from home making money. 

If you want to change your situation you have to make the change.  Let me know if you want to and I will show you how I did it.
