My Frugal Way Of Living After Completing College

Mar 27, 2008
When I left from college and decided to move to the big city, I
knew that money was going to be tight. I managed to undertake an apartment
for much lower than I had expected but I still knew I needed money for
bills and other necessary items.

I have a nice job but it doesn't pay
enough money to support me with much disposable income. So I needed to
attain ways to cut corners anyway attainable.
I started to visit garage sales to find many miscellaneous items for
decorating my apartment.

I also searched through clearance bins and
collected as many coupons as I could for department stores. I was quickly
discovery things that are my style and saving slews of cash.
Another important part of my living situation is entertainment.

I am
not big on going out to party, but I am big on watching TV. I knew I had to
invest in a good TV if I invested in anything. I was even
ready to eat Raman Noodles every night for a month so I could save up
enough cash for an HDTV.

I am not a typical early 19 year old who just
places everything I can't afford on a charge card. Instead, I will make
sacrifices so I can pay for what I need with cash.
After I saved enough money, I called the satellite provider to see how much
per month I would have to pay to have HD service.

The cable company
said that it would be around $10 more a month. I budgeted it into my
financial situation and left the apartment to purchase my first HDTV.
When I arrived at the electronics store, all of the HDTVs overwhelmed
me.

I knew I didn't want a huge tv but I wanted one that
was big enough. While I was walking around, I couldn't believe the HD pictures
on the televisions. They were so sharp and I could hardly wait to get
it in my apartment so I could watch my most favorite shows in HD.

I decided on a 42 inch because it seemed to be large enough for my
needs. It looks tremendous against my back wall. I was even able to
arrange my furnishings perfectly around it so when all my buddies come to visit
everyone can see what I have on.

I am even planning a party
for all of my family and friends. The primary feature will be some great
taco's and a movie on my awesome screen.
