How do you save money?
"I don't buy shit. I don't go shopping for clothes. I'm a big second-hand person. My brother wore this 'E.T.' shirt when he was young and I'm wearing my roommate's shoes. My friend gave me this sweater a few minutes ago because I was cold. I bum-I'm a bum. I'm all about quantity, not quality. That's why I have a Dillon's Plus card. I get toilet paper and paper towels in bulk. They say that the nice toilet paper lasts longer and saves you money in the long run, but I haven't put that to the test. (I have the best book in my bathroom-'What's Your Poo Telling You?' It's the best book ever. It's important for your health.")
What do you splurge on?
"I'm a big fan of vodka cranberries. I don't have a vodka of choice-it's f*cking vodka, it tastes like shit. Food and booze-I know that's typical shit, but I spend money on getting my stomach full. I also splurge on being with my friends and traveling. We (went) to Winfield. Some people can't cut it this year, and we (bought) them tickets. I splurge on making sure that my friends are there and having a good time. So I spend on filling my stomach and my heart."
