Buster Benson I need more goals.
I don’t spend enough money to have to care about money, but I think that’s a silly excuse to completely ignore it. The problem is that it is just so BORING. My philosophy has alwyas been that if there’s money in my bank, EVERYTHING IS OK. It also helps that other than furniture, clothes, and alcohol, I don’t really buy much. Not having a car, a television, a gadget obsession, or any dependents surely helps.
There is something fun about money though. Somewhere DEEP down in its psychotic mind. I somewhat facetiously believe that my personality and my life can be interpreted through my monthly statements. I am what I consume. Since I only have one debit card and one credit card, it should be fairly easy to monitor it and learn more about myself through its grainy xeroxed receipts and online downloadable importable statements.
So, I’m going to do that. For a year, starting now. I’ll begin by looking back on the previous year briefly and seeing what kind of financial jungle I happen to currently inhabit. Yes, I know, sounds really fun! Join me!
