I spend a lot of my money on sneakers when I really should be using the money to pay back my student loans, save up for a new car(I drive a humpty), using the money to pay rent, and just saving, in general, for a rainy day. But, I have an easy job that pays well for me to manage my lifestyle.

anyone out there jobless and spending a grip on shoes?

I gave up buying kicks about 2 years ago. I'm going to be finishing up grad school real soon and I'm trying to think ahead.
Don't wanna be caught out of school with no $$ and crazy loans to pay off. So for now, I'm refusing to even look for kicks so I don't get tempted.

Sneakers are mighty lame now days. They are just a bad investment now a days. A year or 2 ago at least your shoe will retain value so its a worth while investment.

I slowed down buying kicks.  I feel better knowing I have money in my bank account.

Again, I manage my spending. It's just that I feel as though I spend too much and for me, by saying spending much I mean 200 per month. Everyone has their insight on what is "too much". I slowed down a bit. I used to spend about 300 a month(not on one shoe, of course) last year. Now that I got a raise and becoming older I have gotten wiser. I'm not in debt, so I am good.

I'm a manager at a pool ans fitness club. I'm getting paid 45K/year. Going to go back to school for nursing so I can make more money and paid off the rest of my loans. I only have about 13 grands in loans. I'm 23 BTW, if that matters.

How are you not in debt but have 13 grand in loans?

And the biggest lesson I've learned about mismanaging money is that an instance--not necessarily emergency--may come up where you may really need that money, be it to take advantage of a great deal (not on shoes) or just advance in life and you totally miss your opportunity because your money is depreciating away in the closet.

Spend wisely.

I used to buy kicks to buy kicks but after I graduated and got responsibilities, that changed. I probably cop kicks once every few months now.

I thought the same thing.

Learn to save your money. There's nothing wrong buying an occasional sneaker or two, but learn to prioritize.

Rent, saving, repaying loans >>>>> sneakers.

Yeah thats not a good look at all. That is a sign of "This person cannot have anything because he's not responsible at all". I would like to have my clothes, my kicks and hobbies but first things first all my bills have to be paid then SAVe and then go have fun those are the fundamentals what you are talking about is Ghetto.

13 thousand in debt and spending money on sneakers, yeah that's being irresponsible and also a turn off.

And it doesn't matter how old you are or what job you have, you should want to get out of any kind of debt as quick as you can.
