21 Struggles Of Being Broke AF During The Holiday Season

When your mum deserves diamonds but you can only afford a Ring Pop.

Posted on

1. You love the holiday season but aren't financially stable enough for it.

2. So you question how you're broke on the third day of your pay-check.

3. But then you remember that life always hits you in every possible way.

4. And you also remember the weak moments you had following Thanksgiving.

5. You just can't resist treating yo' self.

6. Even though your intentions are good.

7. However, it's hard when everything costs your soul and more.

8. So you're stuck thinking about what could've and should've been.

9. And you're forced to start getting creative with your gifts.

10. Or to start making your own.

11. Because when you try to buy your loved ones gifts... it can get a bit tricky.

12. So you drill in the fact that Christmas isn't about the gifts at all.

13. And that gift-giving this year isn't a necessity.

14. So you're quickly labelled as a Grinch.

15. But then you start thinking about the gifts you want... or rather need to receive.

16. And how bad you need those material things.

17. So you tell yourself you just need to get through to January's pay.

18. But then January's pay hits and the cycle continues.

19. And you find it hard to keep up with the healthy New Year's resolutions you made...

20. ...especially when you see that even the gym is out of your broke-ass bitch budget.

21. But you find solace in the fact that something good can come out of being broke AF.
