How do you save money?

"Well, you see, I'm a big fan of the $3.25 Slim sandwich at Jimmy John's. I'm impressed and reassured by their variety and selection, where I can go any day of the week and find a sandwich that nourishes my core. Another way I save money is through Christmas gift cards. I'm also a big fan of the Pachamama's Star Bar. The Star Bar menu can save you a lot of money, especially compared to the regular Pachamama's menu. I'm into drink specials when they're for Shiner Bock. Otherwise I just pay for Shiner because it's my favorite beer. A really useful tool for saving money is an iPhone application called GasBag that shows me the cheapest gas in a 5 mile radius. I use it to find the cheapest gas in Lawrence."

How do you splurge?

"I like to buy my friends drinks a lot, I like to buy clothes at Hobbs, and I'm going to buy a van. A 15 passenger Dodge Econoline."
