Why Does Nobody Appreciate A Bargain?

POV: it’s Saturday. You are with a friend on the train and because we are so spontaneous we say “hey, why don’t we go to Botanic instead?”. You feel crazy because you are now getting off one stop later, what a rush. You go around and live the quirky life you desired as you shop in charity shops. Then bam, in one of the last shops you go to you find the biggest bargain ever (or at least that I’ve ever seen). It’s a literal Panasonic Lumix digital camera for £20 and it’s pretty much brand new! Who am I, Bargain Hunter?

Advertisements

But then guess what? You go home completely buzzing, ready to show this win because my mum loves a bargain too (or so I thought). Then when I walk in the house like the retro bitch I am, I shove the camera in their face and go like “guess how much this was?” and they’re like “Ummm-” but they takin’ too long so I gotta but in like “£20!”. *crickets* In fact, there weren’t even any crickets. They were too busy going and wasting all their money instead of appreciating my find. What is up with these people?

Advertisements

And tell me why the fuck they turn to me and say “don’t you have a phone?” They really said that, deadass. Bitch where is this whole “when I was your age all I had was my imagination” type shit? You should appreciate me becoming a retro gal and finding enjoyment that isn’t on my phone. And anyway, did you not hear what price it was??? Like… get your ears checked girl. You know what? I’ll just take a picture of your ear with my NEW camera, so you’re welcome bitch.

Advertisements

And you never know, this could be my calling. I could become the next big photographer but they don’t give a shit. Do I have any interest in doing that? No, but I could. Maybe if they were motivational or nice then I would become a photographer gorl. But never mind, I guess this is good for my autobiography “that bargain bitch: the price you pay for appreciation”. Don’t think I’m not taking notes bitch

Advertisements

Sometimes, though, I have to admit that at some points all these discounts are making me pay more overall because I will buy that shit just because it’s cheap. Like I was near about to buy this wireless apple watch charger (that was probably non-functional) when I don’t even have an apple watch, all because it was like £2.50. And I was also about to buy a really small tripod that was so crusty musty that I felt sick to my stomach, only because it was 50p. To be fair, I never actually bought those things, but you better bet that I have bought some random crap. I can’t remember them all but I will list a few

Advertisements
  1. A ping-pong net: To be fair, we do actually have stuff for ping-pong/table tennis (whatever the difference is) so I could kind of justify it, but then again I haven’t played it since a really dark time in the third quarantine and I don’t know if I’m ready to go back there. But it’s the one that is pretty snazzy and clips onto the side of your table and you can pull the net out to whatever length you want. And guess how much it cost me? £1.50! No joke. I was loving it. Will I ever use it? Who fucking knows but now I have a great convo starter for every single time it is in my presence
Advertisements

2. A 10 pack of A5 booklets: Don’t even ask me what the fuck was going on here because I just want to leave that behind me. But let me tell you anyways. I was going through one of those phases where you panic because you don’t know shit about how to revise well. Then one day I was shopping, as one does, and I was in easons (RIP) and there was this 10 pack of A5 booklets. I wouldn’t have given a shit if I hadn’t seen the bright yellow sticker that said £3. I don’t even know if that is fucking worth it because I tried it for one subject and it just really stressed me out. The pages were thin as fuck and I couldn’t get it to look nice. So now, as a result, I am £3 down and have 10 useless booklets taking up room on my bookshelf. Do not recommend tbh.

Advertisements

3. Lastly, because I rarely regret a good bargain, I’m gonna talk about a broad topic which is buying stuff that you already have just because it’s cheaper and you never know, maybe there could be a zombie apocalypse and the only thing that stops them is another lip balm. Don’t come looking for me when you can’t find another burts bees anywhere, I’ll be living freely. It does get out of hand as some point though because it’s such a fucking waste. I have so many body lotions and face masks that are so out of date I could probably get them sent out to be used for a science experiment.

Advertisements

I know everyone in the comments is gonna be going on about how it’s a whole marketing tactic and that you can’t believe that I would actually fall for that, but bravo to the bitch who came up with the tactic because it is hella smart. I’m not even ashamed to admit that I will fall for it again and again and I want it to continue that way. No matter what the product is, if I see a mega discount, you better know I’m gonna go get it and then go home and brag about it to everyone. Honestly, they do get sick of it, but who is the one who can handle their money well? Maybe I’ll spend £50 on 67 random pieces of crap, but at least I won’t spend that much on fucking jeans.

Advertisements

Lol, yeah I guess that is all I have to say about bargains at the moment. Honestly, though, who all loves a bargain because I know I do but I feel like nobody really respects it. It never gets old. You get such a sense of pride that you somehow found something at such an amazing price and probably nobody else will get it, especially if it’s in a charity shop which is something I’ve really gotten into lately. I find it so fun to compare prices because I’ll deadass go into a shop like Pull and Bear or Stradevarious and go around point at clothes like “can you believe I literally got a top that is EXACTLY like that for £2, and they are selling it here for £39.99?! I could never” and then I’d continue that with every item of clothing until they kick me out.

And what about it? Fight me. Anyways, I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

Elvis (2022) | I’ve Watched It, But Should You?

To be completely honest with you, I didn’t have any high hopes for the movie when I heard it was coming out. I thought it would be another one of the “Bohemian Rhapsody” types of movies, which I did like, but was getting kinda bored of. I also didn’t know much about Elvis himself, or… Continue Reading →

The Christmas Spirit Is a Curse

The Christmas Spirit Is a Curse

Whoever said Christmas is about giving, not receiving is fucking right because bitch do I GIVE! Now I ain’t tryna brag and be like oh my days I’m so unlucky that I have to/can spend money to get stuff for my family, but like I’m just saying that I am acting as though I’ve got the cash to do it. By the end of the year, my only new year’s resolution is to not go overboard next Christmas, but we can all relate when I say this never works out. When it gets to Christmas time I just get the image in my head that when my family come down the stairs on Christmas morning that they will say “fuck you” to Santa’s gifts and go straight to mine because they know that it’s gonna be something amazing. Sadly, it comes at an expense

Advertisements

The truth is, I am shite at presents (apart from this year I actually got some pretty good ones if I say so myself) so I don’t know why I always have such a high expectation for myself. The Christmas cheer basically makes me want to spend what I have. If I was one of those people I would say Christmas music is magic and actually makes me want to spend more and it is all a government plan to fix the economy. Lol, watch all the Karens get triggered. But no, I don’t know why I buy some of the things that I buy. Somebody tell me why the fuck I justify purchases like “my dog has been needing a Gucci belt actually”. Make it make sense. Most of the time I will be digging in the depths of my mind for a gift idea because it needs to be the best but that means it is usually some shit that they don’t even remember. I swear my twin will open her gift and be like “thanks, but why the fuck?” and I’ll be like “do you not remember the time you said you really wanted that” and she’ll be like “umm, no. When?” and then I’ll be like “when we were in the womb, silly”. Like it really is not ok for me.

Advertisements

Seriously though, who do I think I am? Kim K? I’ll be over here splashing the cash like I’m in a water park. I literally never buy anything throughout the year because I literally have a phobia or some shit, but then by November/December time, the concept of being financially responsible has no significance to me. I will have literally spent a fuck tonne and be like “yeah I’ve got most of my gifts but I still need to add a few things and then I’m done”. My friends are probably over here like bitch where the fuck are you pulling this from because last week you couldn’t seem to find the spare change for a fucking train ticket (in my defence they are bloody expensive nowadays).

Advertisements

One of the saviours for both me and my pocket is that my friends and I do a secret Santa so that we only have to buy 1 gift instead of gifts for everyone. To be honest, this could turn into a whole other post because that shit gets difficult when you got a twin in the same friend group, but I’ll leave that for another time if you want to hear about it. I also seem to get the same person every fucking time so at this point, I have no clue what else to get her. There are only so many inside jokes that can be made into a gift and I also want it to be something good. That shit is stressful for real but at least we got a price limit so we know that nobody gonna get a fucking grape when they just gave someone an iPhone.

Advertisements

One last thing that really needs to be mentioned about the whole Christmas situation that you kinda forget about is having to open presents in front of people. This is the day of having to overemphasize your reactions because you gotta give that Christmas cheer. The truth is, I’ll be looking like the grinch tryna smile so much. Even if I like the gift I’ll have to fake so much excitement as though my life led up to that very moment. Let me show you the script that I am nominating for an oscar award:

*opens gift until I can just make out what it is*
me: *inhales the entire room in shock* Oh my god! This is so cool! *eyes wider than humanly possible* I’ve literally wanted this for ages! Thank you so much *finishes unwrapping the gift and holds it up to look at it at all angles while having my mouth wide open* This is so amazing, thank you so much for this pair of white socks!

Advertisements

And scene… How did you like it? Pretty amazing right? I’ll let you guys use that one, on the house of course. It does have to be a whole big thing though doesn’t it and it makes it seem so fake even though you probably did like it. You just gotta let everyone feel appreciated but to be honest, unless it’s a life, I won’t be reacting like that for real. I appreciate everything, don’t get me wrong, but I’m just tryna act like I didn’t cry all night so that’s all I can deal with at the moment. Thank you.

Advertisements

Anyways, a good side is that I have ‘rona (please read t the end of this sentence so that doesn’t sound bad) so Imma just says I need to wear a mask and then I won’t have to act so much. I’ll just act with my eyes. But yeah, please do comment below if your spending budget goes out the fucking window, neigh, out the fucking ozone layer, whenever it is Christmas time or if Christmas morning is actually really stressful for you. Don’t forget to like and follow as well for more content like this. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

I’m not above a fight

See, I don’t really like it when people are cheeky to me. I mean you can be upfront and shout at me and I’ll be fine with that. My sisters have conditioned me to that. But if you are being passive aggressive or cheeky in front of me or behind my back, I won’t hesitate to fight.

No this isn’t coming out of the blue guys, but something I did yesterday kinda got my blood boiling if you get me. Anyways, here I was at my friend’s house for moral support because I was about to call my work and be like “hey girl so for medical and educational reasons I’m not gonna be able to work more than 8 hours a week but obviously I can work more on holidays thanks”, and here my manager does the longest sigh ever, literally I could almost smell her stinking breathe it was that loud, and I was like shit what is about to happen. Then this bitch really stops the sigh and goes “that’s not really helpful for us”

😮 Did I ask?! No I think the fuck I didn’t so why the hell did you have to say that. Would you prefer I didn’t work any hours? Do you want me to quit because I’ll be more than happy to get out of this bitch. Like I actually don’t even like work. When I tell you I was shocked, I mean I was back-from-war-tazer-in-the-back shocked. I still am at the moment tbh.

But anyways, after that, I paused because I was in denial at that stage or something and then I was just like “Ummm well… It’s for medical reasons as well” because my doctor told me to say that so she legally couldn’t fire me for it (I also wouldn’t care if she did because then id use and never have to work again, I’m not too proud to miss that opportunity bitch) and here she was acting all nice again, miss cheeky bitch tryna get on my good side again. Like I actually have to go to work with her today and if she comes up to me and starts talking shit, I will happily throw hands. I mean I’m terrified of her too, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, but she barely knows me and doesn’t know how hard I can hit. BTW this is a joke don’t be calling the police

Anyways yeah that happened and it really made me realise how much I HATE, despise, loath, work. Do I get paid minimum wages to only get a 20 min break during illegal hours?! I think the fuck not. Like I have enough money saved to get my ass out of that hoe and I only stay cause I want my parents to be proud of me lol. But you have to admit what she said was petty uncalled for. Like it was not necessary. I actually despise the working world and it sucks the little bit of life and dignity inside of me.

So what do you guys reckon I should do? Quit or just realise that this is life. Also if anyone is like a law person, is there any way I could use for doing illegal hours with only a 20 minute break. I mean that would be ideal lol. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

Money Can’t Solve Your Pro… Shut The Fuck Up

In the wise words of Ariana Grande, “whoever said money can’t solve your problems must not have had enough money to solve ’em” and I live by that honestly. It is true though. Like a lot of my problems are caused by money but can also be fixed by them soooo. But every time I hear that phrase, I just think of the mugs that we all got as a kid and it would say “money can’t buy happiness but it can buy you cupcakes” and we would literally eat it up. We thought we were so fucking relatable when we had bloody chocolate milk in that mug or something like that. That’s what I hate though whenever I tell people I want to get rich and live the life I want and they are like “but money isn’t everything. It can’t solve your problems” and I just look at them like “I don’t give a flying fuck if it doesn’t solve my problems. It would be impossible to solve that many. Even my therapist can’t do it bitch, but I would rather be depressed in Greece under the sun with a lovely view, than stuck in Northern Ireland with the view of bloody chavs roaming around the streets. You get me? I mean which one do you prefer? Be honest.

Advertisements

And I think that having a lot of money wouldn’t solve all my problems, but it could solve someone else’s. I want to do charity work in Africa or something or like give a homeless person a house, but if I don’t have the money, what the fuck am I going to do? Walk up to a homeless person and say “you see that house there. That is yours… is what I would say if I have the money but I don’t” *walks away* I mean that doesn’t sound fair to me. And I don’t see why people get so pressed whenever you talk about wanting lots of money. Like I’m just talking to my family or something and I’m like “yeah I want to get rich and travel the world” and they look at me like I just turned into fucking Donald Trump and as though I’m a disappointment for wanting to be successful. Mum and Dad just be like “I thought we brought you up well! I can’t believe you’ve just done this!” *me laughing because I am now thinking of that one vine*

Yeah, I hope other people got that reference because that would be quite embarrassing if you didn’t. But back on topic. Why is it that people think money is such a bad thing. When people win the lottery, others are like “awk you don’t even need all that money, why did they even take the money oh my god” and I don’t know if they are just jealous or something but like if someone went up to you and was like “well done you won the lottery of £20 million” and you were like “no it’s ok I don’t really want it. Thank you” and they are like “but you literally bought a fucking ticket for it” and then your like “money doesn’t solve your problems, so no thank you” and then the guy says “£20 million fucking will you dumb fuck”. Like honestly, you entered it for a reason. So many people do. Do you want to not win it? Do you just like to complain that you never get it, when in reality you would just throw it away if you won. Like yes it is a lot of money but it doesn’t mean they are just gonna wipe their ass with it. They probably will donate some or do something nice with it. It isn’t their fault for entering a lottery like normal. They didn’t harry potter the fuck out of the numbers so they won. It is all by chance. So like why are people judging them the fuck! Make it make sense please because right now I would be loving a couple million in the bank.

Advertisements

I could list about 100 problems that money could solve for me. That isn’t even a joke. I wouldn’t have to go to school or work ever again, I could travel and see things I never would have been able to see, I could help the less fortunate, I would have more of a voice, I could actively do things to improve the planet, I could do things like skydiving that I have never done before, I could pay for my mum and dad to never go to work again, I could support so many of the people I love. But then again that would make me selfish, no? I think it would be pretty bloody great to get a load of money you know. So to whatever numskull first said “money can’t solve your problems”, I dare you to win the lottery and find out what it solves, because hopefully it could fix your fucking brain for thinking money won’t do anything. But here’s what I will do. I will try my hardest to become rich and gather a lot of money, and then I will be the judge that will end the question of whether or not it solves my problems and at the moment, my guess is that it will, so just wait a few years and I’ll get back to you *sips wine from “money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you cupcakes”mug*

Advertisements

Thank you so much for reading this post. It was a tad random, but lets be honest, it was necessary. Who else thinks that money could solve their problems? I know that some of mine could. Not all of them like but money can also pay for a therapist which could help. I don’t know, but hopefully we will find out. Please like, comment and subscribe if you enjoyed this content and I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT

What I Do To Make Money As A Teenager

OK so don’t even be judging me for wanting to make a wee bit of money. I mean I just want to get out of school and not literally freeze to death. What I also want to do is help you guys do the same. Now look, you aren’t gonna literally make millions from one of these, at least I don’t think you can but if you keep at it you could probably make a good wee bit. I know that I am gonna keep using them so, yeah. Also I would like to add that I am an affiliate for some of the links in here and I will get a wee bit of a commission, just so it doesn’t look like I’m coming for your money LOL

Fiverr

You guys might have heard of this, but it’s a wee app where you can literally sell any service you can provide. For me, I sell my voice. LOL this ain’t no little mermaid shit, it is just that I will do audio books and stuff like that. But no, it is good and it feels very professional although it is still really easy to get everything filled in. But there are so many services you can sell on there. If you know a different language, computer software, website building, designing, logos, or anything like that then you can already start selling, and that is only a small part of it. There are so many other things that you can sell. I will leave a wee pic for you to click on and you can get onto it

Affiliate Marketing
The first question is, what the hell is affiliate marketing? And what I can tell you about that is it is kind of exactly what I just did. It is where you join an affiliate position for a brand and you just promote their product and website. And like I said on the first paragraph, I do get commission if someone were to click on it. I just like to get that across so that you guys can trust me and know that I don’t want to steal your money, I would rather direct you to someplace and get a few benefits off it. It is basically just suggesting things to people but you actually get payed. On most websites all you need to do is scroll down to the bottom and there will be the word ‘affiliate’ and then all you need to do is sign up and post these things where others can find them.
– Amazon
One of the programs I am in is in Amazon and that makes me sound all fancy but anyone can do it. It is really simple and you may have seen some on my other posts where I leave a link, sometimes those things are affiliate links but other times there aren’t. So yeah definitely go check out the Amazon one because it is one of the most well know and trusted websites. Just click here

Advertisements

UserTesting

This is a really great website where all you need to do is record your voice while you review a website. So literally you just say what you think, just anything and they pay you for it. There are ones which can go to $30 to $120 but those ones you have to do on a proper face time, so I just do the ones that are $10 dollars, and that is like £6.50 which is pretty good for only 10-15 mins of work if you ask me. Click here to get to it. You can get it on your phone as well so you can do tests whenever and wherever. Definitely a good one for those on their phones all day anyways.

Blogging

Look, I know you are all probably crying at the screen saying “I thought you loved us!”. All I have to say is that at the start I was like, lets make some money, but then I was like, ya know what, this is quite fun. Totally not because I already put in money for this and can’t back out. LOL please trust me when I say I was joking about that. I actually learned that I really enjoyed this stuff because I can write about anything on my mind and whenever anyone like my posts I just get so motivated because somebody actually was interested in what I said. We all feel like we are too weird for this world and, maybe I am, but there are others out there who actually do want to hear what you have to say and it really is rewarding. I use WordPress for mine and you can use whatever you want really. You might not actually make any money off it, I know I haven’t, but it inspires me to find other ways of making money so that I can keep doing this instead of some boring desk job, although technically I am at a desk right now, but that’s beside the point.

Advertisements

Read

Ok, you guys definitely think I am some type of English freak. I am not I swear. I haven’t read a book in ages, but then I heard of this book that helped people to be financially stable and I was like, well what have I got to loose. £13 to be exact. But so far it has been worth it and although yuo may be like, how will a book make you money? Well, Karen, this book will teach you the skills to use and make money, so if I didn’t have it then I wouldn’t have that knowledge or ability to make money, so there is your answer. I would consider it an asset for my future, which you would understand if you read the book. But I am gonna be nice and give you a link to that book. Just click this pic and you can get one ok!

Feature Points

I have just started this and it is one where you just submit surveys that you don’t have to record anything, just answer some questions. It is a simple points system and depending on what you do you can get a certain amount of points which can give you money on paypal or for different gift cards, it is quite good I have to say. Again I haven’t used it for too long but it is professional and I am gonna keep using it for sure. Just click on the pic and you can go try it for yourself.

Honey Gain

I have actually talked about this before. It is literally the easiest way I have made money. You definitely are gonna think this is a scam, but all you need to do is sign up and wait for the money to come rolling in. It is a source of passive income and I don’t know how to explain it without it making it sound sketchy but it is so great and yes that literally is all you do. Click below and you can get started, you’ll thank me later

Domains

I haven’t actually made money off this yet because it takes more time, but what you do is you go to a site like godaddy.com, you buy a domain for around £10 and then you sell it for more. This can be a bit risky but I have heard of some money who make piles of money from it so I am willing to take the risk if I am honest with you. It does take longer but you don’t actually have to do anything which is great. You know what to do by now, click on the pic

Sweat Coin

Do you ever go on a walk and think to yourself, “I need payed for this”. Well, it’s all sorted for you. Just get walking and your steps with actually be worth it. I suppose it could save the environment. I mean just walk and get money while you go to the store or wherever you need, without using your car, so, your welcome world. Click the pic below and you can start

Poll Pay

Ok I think I just found one of the best survey to money apps. This isn’t an ad by the way but with the other apps you may not even get to take the survey or you may have to do hundreds just to get a fiver, but with this one it is made so much more simple and I love it. Just on the picture

Thank you all so much for reading this and I hope it will come into good use for you all. I use these all and trust them all if that is any consolidation ahaha. But yeah, just one more reminder that, as an affiliate, I get a commission for any purchases, so thank you if you bought something LOL but yeah, hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT


Weekly Reminder


I was watching a video today which has the author of ‘rich dad, poor dad’, Robert Kiyosaki, and he mentioned something that kind of shocked me. He was talking about his dad who had a PhD and was really successful in college, and then continued on with the topic of the video, which was the different mindsets of different people. But the thing was, as the video went on he finally said something along the lines of ‘and my poor dad, the one who got his PhD and continued his career in university’. This made me stop for a second. When I first heard about the dad who had a PhD, I thought that he was the rich one. My mind just linked the book smarts with success.

It makes me think, you know, about how we have been programmed to think in a certain way. From the start of our life we have been told that to become rich and successful, we need to do well in school. But what Kiyosaki also mentioned in his video, was that the school system don’t want you to know about money or how to make it. He said that his PhD dad told him that the government gave them orders on what to teach and what not to teach. They want to make us into employees, not bosses. Now I am not gonna go into a whole tangent about schools but what I am going to say is that, school doesn’t teach you everything you need to know. You probably already knew that though. I mean what student can look you in the eye and say, I know how to pay taxes, I know how to pay the bills, I know how to invest in stocks. I can guarantee you that only a very very small percentage can say that.

I don’t want anyone to get confused here though. I am not saying that his ‘poor dad’ is unsuccessful, because there is no definite definition of success. Maybe his dads calling was to learn a lot about a certain topic and pass it on to other generations. Maybe where he ended was his success. Money isn’t the deciding figure for everyone’s success. I mean maybe it is for you. I sure as hell no that it is part of the success for me, and that can be a controversial thing to say because people always argue that ‘money can’t buy you happiness’. Do you know what? You’re true. It can’t buy me happiness, but it can sure as hell buy me experiences which will make me happy. Money, for me, has a huge impact on what I view as success. I want to be able to live my life as I want it, while helping other on the way. I want my parents to be able to not have to work for the rest of their lives. My view of success for my future is financial freedom. You can say I am materialistic. You can say I am selfish. But I am not. Everyone has been corrupted in their views of billionaires and millionaires and so have I because you feel as though they are selfish and don’t give any money for any good. I am with you on that, I am completely with you on that. They do need to give more. But having lots of money doesn’t mean they are bad people, it just means that they have worked hard.

Over all, I just want to get across that you can’t morph your future into the expectations of other. We don’t all think the same and you shouldn’t think that doing well in school is the only option for success because, as Robert Kiyosaki showed, even a knowledgeable man was living paycheck to paycheck. You kind of just got to focus on what you can achieve and go for it. If you are interested in reading his book ‘rich dad, poor dad’ then click here and you can get one. I just ordered it too but I haven’t got it yet but I am so excited to start reading it.
