I feel like such a Thrifty McNifty right now!! My friend wanted to go salsa dancing for her birthday tonight so of course I'm down like Charlie Brown! I go get my cash back from Wal-Mart so I can get in but then *screech* my friend calls me and pumps my breaks. He says it's $20 to get inside. Now honestly this isn't bad at all but I was expecting it to be like free before 10:30 or something (I mean help a sister out!)
Suffice it to say, I am now at home typing this rather than getting my salsa on, all because I am CHEAP
The only reason this irks me is because I always wanted to be the person that would just pay for everyone to get in because I just got it like that. And one day that will be me because I'm all for having a good time. Unfortunately, right now good times cost money that I don't have which is sad business : (
I'm just really disappointed that I couldn't get over the price and just dance the night away with my girl for her birthday. I know she's cool cuz she's having a blast but maybe I'm just getting old or something because I am quite content being at the crib on a Saturday night. That doesn't bother me one bit
What does bother me is that I would pass up fun SOLEY because of how much it costs. I don't want that to be the story of my life so I am going to turn it around and start being prosperous!! It starts with my words and I'm saying that I am abundantly blessed, highly favored, rich, full of joy and ready to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world!
Any other frugal folks out there? (and not in a good, thrift store shopping kind of way lol)
