Cutting Corners

Dating on Hold (at least the expensive type)


Well it’s the 27th and we are all sweating for the same reason (unless your still sleeping in your space man sheets and race car bed tucked nicely up in your bedroom).  That’s right, rent is coming up.  Rent rent rent rent.  Money money  money money.  All of the sudden that shirt you bought a few days again doesn’t seem as worth it but it’s too late to take it back and deep down it is a cute shirt that will go perfect on you upcoming personals date this Friday.  So here’s what you can do to skim a few corners in your budget to make up for it.

  • go to your parents for dinners and casually suggest to take the left overs off their hands
  • sell some old stuff on ebay
  • pick up an on the side gig for cash like doing a banquet wedding or tutoring
  • say no to those small perks at the grocery store like those delicious Skinny Cow ice cream containers (you won’t starve without them.  Just maybe get a little cranky)
  • take money out of your transportation fund and take the bus a couple times
  • cancel some of your datingplans (that always sets you back)


Singles for Singles Lifestyle

I know none of these ideas are necessarily ideal in your life and probably would much rather ignore them.  But desperate times call for desperate measures.  You only have four days to make sure you have all the money you need for rent.  This is only temporary until your next cheque and hopefully you’ll be able to get back on budget then and re-enter your singles for singles lifestyle.
