    I only drink water, not paying for juice or soda

    I don't pay to stream TV shows or watch sports. I'm speaking my truth mods don't snipe my post for this.

    I don't eat junk food

    Live in walking distance of my job so fuel costs are low

    Shop at the boujee grocery stores so I'm paying less for bulk

    I cut and line up my own hair

    I don't ball out when I go out cause I hate tipping

    I tell my friends and family asking for a loan to rob a bank

    when I buy stuff by the pound (nuts, quinoa, rice etc) I write the cheapest PLU code I can find and go through the self checkout aisle

    also when I buy organic stuff produce I just mark it as regular in the self check out aisle

    So what. Don’t get bamboozled by price gouging. If these companies don’t pay their workers fair wages why the **** should I care paying under retail

    Started returning my bottles and cans to the Supermarket a few years ago. I used to keep it in a vacation account and would pay for at least one airfare/year, but last year started an investment account with it. Now I make a few more extra bucks than before. I hope to get it big enough where the dividend income pays for the plane ride and more.

    Scumbag gate checks :lol:

    I can't knock you, but eventually like all other schemes they'll catch on and then like most of the other airlines will start charging for gate checks.

    JetBlue is a good airline that let a lot of crap slide that other airlines won't but look at the profits the other airlines make and they'll eventually start doing the same.

    I def only drink water, and lately I have been refilling my empty water bottles from the crib here at my office for free and taking them back home :lol::smh:

    I live within walking distance of both of my jobs + a grocery store + my barbershop.. Pretty much live walking distance to where everything I frequent is so I cut down costs by not having a car currently.
