You're pretttttyyyy damn broke. Like, your bank balance isn't quite in the negatives yet but it's one night out away. Bills are your worst enemy, and clearance sales are your best friend. This isn't a bad thing — it just means you're thrifty and nifty and you know your limits. Enjoy that ramen dinner!
