Because I work in publishing and get paid mostly in books (no, but really) my take home is only about $32 less a check.
THIRTY TWO DOLLAS.
There is so much I could have done with that $32:
- Buy 3 shirts from H&M
- Buy 3 lunches during the week (which I normally don't do anyway because I am cheap)
- Buy 5 beers at happy hour
- Use it on a decent dinner out (minus a bottle of wine)
- Buy a bottle of wine at a restaurant that isn't awful
- Put it towards my holiday shopping credit card debt hellish hell go away now PLEASE
- Purchase a shelf to put over my dining room table
- Get something like 3200 4x6 photos developed when there are penny print sales!!
