Money$ [Mar. 1st, 2005|05:34 pm]
Contrary to typical policy, this semester I have been not only buying everything with cash, but also recording how much I spent so that I can have an accurate idea of how much it takes to maintain a kid at college, with a decent/fairly high standard of living/buying stuff. I said to myself that the trial period would be from January 15 to March 1. So today I have a total.
I've spent $270 dollars in that time.
And with two exceptions, that's been for basic things like groceries, pizza, and the like. Yes, I did spent $29 on gaming stuff and $50 on Phi Psi pledge. But that's still quite a bit of moneys on food.
For now I haven't had the time I intended to think about this, because of the other stuff going on. But I hope I get a chance at some point.

I wish I could subsist for two months on that little money. Why doesn't work give you meals as part of the package!

See, if you count in tuition and room and board I'm sure the number will be much more to you're liking. And way, waaay scarier to me. I still think of money the way a teenager does, see. And so $20 is a good chunk of money in my eyes.
