Yeah, I know alot of people are going to say that Newgrounds isn't the place to ask for answers or even minor suggestions to problems you are having. Honestly though, with Newgrounds unique mix of Under-age, and adult users I figure this would be the best place to ask for help in this matter.
I am currently making about 88-120$ A week from work (This fluctuates depending on who, and if anyone needs to take some hours from me, and I am of course more than happy to oblige what with a busy school schedual, and an auto-immune disorder preventing me from working straight 8 hour shifts.)
I am also taking about 1200$ additional dollars a month from Government Stipends regarding my schooling.
This all in all should leave me with about 1616$ dollars a month (after finding the average of the 88-120) Take out 620 of that for Rent/Internet/Cable/ETC. That leaves me with about 996$ A month, Take out about 60$ of that for cellphone, leaving me with 930$. In the end of the month though, I come out with about... 60$ from my last paycheck.
The problem is I know where this goes, and I know how to stop it... I just have an actual problem stopping it, I don't know if it's an addiction, or a coping mechanism, but let me give you an idea of my expenses, and see if you can discover where it lies.
500$ dollars left form the 1000 After paying rent.
70$ in Ps2 Games
120$ To create an account with TimeWarner (non-negotiable, and a rare occurence)
30$ eating out.
Most other months, you can safely replace that 120$ With either, Magic cards, or More video games.
I newgrounds, Have a problem with money, I for the love of me, can not stop buying stuff, I even put my money into a bank account, and find myself infront of a store counter using my debit card to buy something (Which is something I promised myself I would never do, as I have a problem already keeping track of money, I pretty much swore off using anything but paper cash for my purchases)
I also think that I may owe a hospital money, despite the fact that I have never gotten any collection notices, and all my information is up to date (around the time I had went there my insurance just ran out so I don't know if this was before or after I went there, I pray before.)
So newgrounds, any suggestions to my very common money problem?
