Welcome to Bossy’s Poverty Party, an online support group for reining in spending, getting your finances in order, and climbing out of debt. Everyone basically knows what steps to take, but it is nearly impossible to climb that mountain alone.
every day nearly every day over the next year, Bossy will use this space to report her spending and missteps, along with cheap recipes, savings tips, and suggested tricks and goals.
Yes, Bossy just returned from four days in Chicago attending a blog conference, and no, on the face of it, that doesn’t exactly seem like a poverty thing to do. In fact, pinch the cheeks of that face a little and spin that face around on its neck and it still doesn’t seem very povertyish.
And so attending a conference — especially one that can be written off against pay checks so microscopic that Bossy needs a stronger eyeglass prescription to read the numbers — makes all the sense in the world, where sense equals a prolonged state of denial, and in the world equals a planet far far from this one.
But Bossy’s financial pact with herself was that she would take a roommate, and not spend any money on things already covered by the conference. This meant that while others were out sampling the many many sister mercy why are there so many delicious restaurants within proximity, Bossy stayed behind drinking the free booze and mooching from party appetizer trays containing fried fried with some fried.
