Is it just me or all the extracurricular activities, school events, and social gatherings makes your wallet feel like it’s a black hole of nothing?? (Please say it’s not just me.) As much as we wish we had unlimited funds and a credit line that never ends, it’s just not true. Plus, the fact that getting older makes you feel more guilty for asking more from your parents. #SorryMa
