3. Your favorite day of the month is payday.

4. That massive $15 entree you bought for lunch right after payday because you felt rich? Well it's going to be lunch, dinner, and tomorrow's lunch too.

Nothing like being poor, to force you to eat proper portions. But actually, good thing bread a cheese are cheap, because those late night grilled cheeses come in clutch.

5. A $10 bottle of wine is more justifiable than $10 lipstick. You don’t need to look cute while drinking that bottle of wine, because lets be real, you’ll be sitting on the couch watching Netflix while drinking it.

10. You agree to go on Tinder dates with the few guys who don’t start out with aggressively sexual comments, because while the best case scenario your family stops questioning you about being single, and worst case, bad company BUT FREE FOOD!

**Bonus points** if you have enough leftovers for a full second meal.

11. You finally understand your mom’s love of coupon clipping. Well, kinda. Sorta. Okay, really more in theory because it’s a lot of work.

You have picked up her knack for finding sales though.
