Hey ladies: just a gentle reminder that fancy dresses and vacations are nice, but it is only COLD HARD CASH that buys you the ability to walk away from bad situations.

Freedom is having the money to walk away from anything.

To build this account, you keep living like you lived as a broke student. Drive the decade-old Civic even after the fender falls off. Buy the thrift store clothes. You waitress on Saturdays, even though you work Monday through Friday. You make do with the garage sale coffee table. It’s hard, your loan payments suck, but you make girl’s night an at-home thing and do tacos potluck.

That's why they call it FU$
