The struggle

The next few weeks are going to be a test of survival and frugality. I'm working another 5 day straight-week, and need to save at least 60% of this weeks check. I've cut my nicotine costs in half by purchasing several packs of roll-your-own cigarettes for half of the price of filtered ones. Due to the ridiculous cost of gas, I've decided for the next few weeks until I move closer to work, I'll be sleeping in the parking lot on my consecutive work days. I've already gotten a lot of scorn for this from my girlfriend, friends, and family, but desperate times call for desperate measures. As far as hygiene, I'm not too concerned. There's showers in the locker rooms and I've got all of the basic hygiene products I should need.

Just a heads up to everyone, I probably won't be posting much over the next few weeks.


  1. why dont you just stop smoking? do you know how much free money you will have? mang.

  2. Good luck man! Smoking is just going to cost you in hospital bills in the long run!

  3. I agree, stop smoking!!

    Gas is nuts over here, so I park my car at the bus stop closest to my house & ride it back & forth to town.

  4. Just stop smoking!
    You will be healthier, you'll save money!
