    Well I work as a Pizza delivery guy but I only get like 4 hours a day [​IMG] due to us having so many workers....but anyway I make an average of like 20 bucks a day in tips...and most of it I spend on [​IMG](trying to cut down on that) and gas because of course I run outta gas drivingall around...but I'm kind of getting frustrated right now cuz I have a lot of things I needa take care of(all involving money) but it's hard to savedue to daily expenses....anyone got some tips to save/manage/flip money?

    Stop buying shoes. (assuming since your on NT)
    Sell some of your shoes you have now.

    easiest way is to cut down on shoes. $100-200 a pop... you can save your dough.

    Save all or $15 of your tips. Put it somewhere and pretend it never existed.
    Next thing you know that thing will be a big amount.
    I don't think it is that hard to save $15 a day.

    put 10% of your paycheck/earnings into a savings account

    try to have it done automatically

    thats how you save money, you will never see that 10% because it goes straight to your savings, in a few years, you will have money saved assuming you dontspend it

    whatever you make in tips, use that as your spending money.

    your basic salary, put most of it in the bank.

    Live within youre means. If that means no eating out or buying as little material possessions as possible then do that.

    Make a mental WANT and NEED list
    Leave the WANTS alone and buy NEEDS

    thats basically it imo.... buy what you need not what you want, you can always buy material things later down the road when your income is better.... and if itcomes to it sell somethings you own

    cousin was a delivery guy... he would cancel orders via their system, still deliver the pizzas, and keep the money for the pizza plus tip.
    a little extra for your hard work

    get a second job. I'm working full-time right now but wouldn't mind getting a part-time job on top of that for 4 hours if I can get one.
