Money doesn't grow on trees. But I know most of us wish it did.
With money comes responsibility, and with adulthood and not having everything bought for you like when you were a kid, there is even more responsibility needed when budgeting your money.
You have to have mini interventions with yourself on the reg about wise spending choices, and if we are being honest, most of the time you don't go with the wise decision.
If you're anything like me, you purchase something on impulse and then immediately regret your decision wondering why you spent that money and what the balance of your checking account is.
But hey, sometimes I look at my funds and am thankful, feeling blessed. Other times... not so much. I wonder what my bank account would say to me if it could talk. Would it be proud of me? Would it make fun of me? Would it laugh? Or would it just feel sorry for me? Probably a mixture of all of the above.
Here are some texts I think my bank account would send me, and who knows, maybe these text would be similar to ones that you would get from your bank account, too.
You already know you're struggling, but don't worry. Your bank account is here to remind you.... and never let you forget about it.
But that Coach purse was so cute. I don't know why I would really buy it, though, considering once I buy it I won't have any money to put in it. Hmmmm.... I'll still think about it.
But I can't tell you how many times this happens to me. Each time I am angry and confused.
Every day, I say I am going to practice budgeting better. But then next thing I know, my friend is texting me about going out to dinner with her. Maybe just an appetizer...
My whole life consists of spending money on food, tbh.
I've worked hard. I should be able to spoil myself with at least one item, right?!
*Walks into a store with a limit of $25, but walks out spending $60.*
Guac, you always tempt me. Why are you so delicious?! Also, why are you $1.95?!
Every. Single. Month.
Overdraft fees are the absolute worst.
Hmmmmm...no I think I can pass on this one...maybe.
Listen, it's hard times out here. A small gift is better than no gift at all. Am I right?
So, I am really happy my bank account can't actually send me informal text messages because if you noticed above, I wouldn't respond to any of them.
What are some texts you think your bank account would send you?
