THINGS I DO IN THE DAYS LEADING UP TO PAYDAY
- •Put gas in my car in small, inexpensive increments.
- •"Watch what I'm eating," which means not eating lunch unless somebody buys it for me.
- •"Catch up on TV" instead of going out.
- •Ask my girlfriend if she'd like to "take a walk."
- •Make plans with my parents because they'll pay.
- •Suggest having friends over to drink at home, and say "yes" when they ask if they can bring something.
