Over the last year I’ve had to reign in our spending, however when I was right out of university I did not have many responsibilities beyond our own care, then i could spend our money frivolously as long as I was affording our bills as well as all of our expenses.
I kind of miss those afternoons because they are a lot more easy than life is now.
I have a family with a wifey as well as more than one children, so most of our money has to go towards the family as a whole. I can’t go out buying pricey scotch or whiskey just because the thought crosses our mind. I had to stop eating out as well as spending so much money on meals or restaurants as well, another thing that I can’t genuinely spend much money on anymore is cannabis. When I was in university I spent every last dollar I did not spend on food on smoking weed, then despite it being all black market cannabis some of it was entirely pretty good. My friends told me that a lot of it was shipped in from out west, however there was plenty of weed that was grown here in the state, but there were beach beach house growers that would create grow rooms as well as their attics or garages, and even though I technically use cannabis medically, I still can’t spend that much money on it every week. I have to suppose about our youngsters who need clothes for school as well as our wifey who is desperately juggling our bills. That’s what stops me from spending too much money when I am at the cannabis dispensary! But it’s genuinely strenuous when there is sales at the cannabis dispensaries for holidays, because they’ll have lots of weed at low prices.
