How do you save money?
"I use automatic withdrawal. I kid you not. I have savings in mutual funds and they take money out of my account every month. I also took out a CD loan that I pay back to the bank every month for savings. I work 40 hours a week at two jobs, so that's all I really need to do to save money. I don't count pennies at the end of every month or anything."
How much does that save you a month? "$375."
What do you splurge on?
"I'm going to buy a car. Oh, and strippers. Actually, we'll call them 'escorts' for the sake of lawrence.com. I don't want to get too dirty."
