SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Whether you and your roommates need money for your electricity bill this month, want some extra cash for spring break, plan on venturing on an epic bar hop, or just want to save up for something awesome, this is what you need to do. I know my roommates and I want to save up for a giant American flag for our living room (because some tool somehow stole our last one at one of our parties) however, we like to blow our money on other pointless shit throughout the semester.
This is why we have established a “curse jar”. The basic principal of a curse jar is simple. You fucking swear, you fucking put a quarter in the jar. Only a quarter? What’s the point in that? It’s going to take months to save up for anything. Yeah, you are right, until your realize how much you swear daily. I’ve already predicted that we will have the flag in the first month of the jar.
Wanna save up even quicker? Make it a house rule. Charge your friends that come over and eat your food and sit on your couch. They swear, they pay. I can almost guarantee that you will have more money at the end of week one then you can even imagine.
I would also like it to be known that although I would like to credit myself for coming up with this idea, I can’t do that. You have to give credit where credit is due. I got the idea from my friends who have what they like to call “the douchebag cup”. Whenever you say something that makes you sound like a raging douche you put a dollar in the cup. I must admit, I’ve added a few dollars myself.
So whatever you decide to do, “curse jar”, “the douchebag cup”, or your own invention, I can assure you, you will meet whatever your goal amount is sooner than just saving money up on the side.
