How do you save money?
"I just don't buy things, that's a good way to save money. Working weekends is also a great way to not spend money. When everybody else is out doing things and spending money, I'm at work not spending money. During the week I stay at home and watch DVDs or hit the bars when they have weekday specials. I'll get my DVDs used at CD Tradepost or through Netflix, so that saves me money. Going to the movie theater is terrible. A few friends and I went to go see 'Crank 2' the other day. We spent about $32 total to see the worst movie I've ever seen. That's not a good way to spend your entertainment dollar. We like to go to Aldi before the movie and buy off-brand Sunny D to sneak into the theater. Hoodies are great for sneaking food into the theater."
How do you splurge?
"Parts for computers, I must admit. I'll get new video cards and stuff. I got a new processor, video card, and mother board within the past year. It was essentially an entirely new system. I spent about $600. Up until recently I was playing 'World of Warcraft,' but I ended that addiction. I cut myself off. I've fallen off the wagon multiple times, but hopefully I'm done for good this time. I'll never quit 'Half Life,' though. It keeps me away from the hookers and blow."
