Money doesn't grow on trees, ya know?

Published December 8th

  1. Pro: No One Asks

    Since you're always broke, your friends will just know not to ask to lend money.

  2. con: you're broke

    OK, so the obvious. You're broke and there's nothing that you can do about that...or is there? Being broke is never fun, but maybe you need to figure out how to change that so you can do, buy and save more.

  3. Pro: You get out of things easily

    When you're broke, you're more than likely a homebody. You stay home to save the money you do have. People won't really expect you to show and if they do, you can get out of it because your reason is always the same.

  4. con: Credit

    Damn son, your credit card debt must be through the roof. Let us plug you a bit, saving app Digit is one of the best out there. Time to save up and pay off that debt!

  5. Pro: Reality check

    Being in the struggle will make you check yourself. Well, at least we hope it does. Money is a real thing, credit trouble is a real thing, loan payment is a real thing. Maybe this is your time to shine. It's your time to find that side hustle that will come in and save you like Batman. You got this sis, just get your ideas together and execute!

  6. Con: Don't Be Like Charlie

    Nope, nope, nope. Don't end up like Charlie. The crew got him into a bit of a situation. There was a sugar mama after Charlie and all the guys started to encourage their relationship for the perks!
