Beitrag von CL@iR3 » 22 Mai 2007 15:52

hmmm I have seem to come to the conclusion that I am the worst money saver in the world..as my date to leave comes closer I am beggining to realise Im not gonna have enough money saved as I would of liked ..anyone else havin this problem.. Im still working but dont get paid much, I have tried askin for more hours but they dont have any to give. its only 22 days till I leave so I cant exactly get another job...anyone got any ideas?? dont think I can get a loan due to not havin a full time job and lack of time...maybe I can sell some of my unwanted organs for scientific research ...anyone else got any ideas?? or am I a hopeless cause

a couple of ideas

Beitrag von Mandy - Melb office » 23 Mai 2007 00:19

If you are working days see if you can get a few night or weekend shifts in a bar, cafe, call centre.

Have a garage sale of all your old bits and pieces.

Take your lunch to work - don't eat out. No coffees, no magazines.

Ask family/friends to give you early birthday/xmas presents of money to help with your trip

Anyone else?

So Jess, how much have YOU saved on your own? You know, from all that work you do? :P

I was freakin out about this a while back, but it turned out ok.. I pretty much just killed any social life, or when I did go out, I offered to drive, so I had an excuse not to drink (as thats where most of my money went) and ppl just willingly threw me cash for petrol, which was pretty decent of em..

Hit up your parents for a loan? Or a sibling? Ive got an older bro with a fair few grand saved up, so if I was stuck I could ask him.

If you are REALLY stuck, credit card it, and just slowly pay it off for the rest of your life.

Are you far off from your savings goal?? Can you hit your parents up for a loan to cover the difference?!? I have a chook (kinda like a biscuit/lolly container i spose) that i am chucking any extra cash in there like gold coins and $5/$10 notes that is going to be my play money for the first few days before camp starts. Haven't seen any green ones in my chook though......
