In the meantime, and coming from past experience, I've learned it's best if you're just upfront about your bank account balance, with yourself, and everyone else around you.. The next time a friend asks you to go to the movies or go to dinner with them just say "I'm tight on cash right now" chances are they'll understand and appreciate the truth more than an excuse, and who knows, they might even buy you dinner.

Death By Debt, Finding the "Free"
At least blogging is free! These days I find it a constant challenge to entertain myself. Society definitely does not cater to the poor, or those saving or conserving finances. You don't actually realize how much you're spending until you don't have the money to spend anymore. Suddenly that 4.50$ grande latte at Starbucks isn't just "coffee" anymore, it's laundry or transportation money. I've never really "pinched" pennies this hardcore in the past you tell yourself. So that brings me to the question, are there free or at least inexpensive things to do in your city? and if so where do you find out about them? Maybe this will have to be a two part blog, I haven't done all my research just yet...
