I, having just sent off my first college application, cleaned up my room a little bit. As I dug through all the old dressers, piles, and miscellaneous clothes under the bed, I found an envelope. Upon opening it, discovered I hadn’t cashed some paychecks.
They total more than $250!
First of all, it’s kind of surprising that I didn’t notice that these weren’t cashed. I mean, I was working a cruddy almost-minimum-wage job I hated, so I figured I would know about every dollar I managed to scrape from it.
Now, the majority of the money I am gonna put in an investing account when I’m 18 (along with more I’ve saved up), which’ll be in January. However, until then, I figured I would celebrate the money-finding / first college app send-off by spending $20-$30 on something.
I’m a 17-year-old male, and have no girlfriend or anything to spend money on, so this’ll all be for me (or my friends). Leave a suggestion on how I should spend $20-$30!
