10 Cheap Things You Can Do To Make Yourself Feel More Fancy

Do you know what guys, it’s so easy to feel poor when you are poor but I’m here to tell you now that it’s not the be all and end all!

I’m not going to make like some fancy pants blogger and tell you I get sent free stuff, have a nice apartment with a high tech security system and the luxury of eating avocado for breakfast every day. No. Because that would be bullshit.

Instead I get sent nothing but junk mail, live in a house that uses its dingy brothel like exterior as it’s main form of security and I can’t remember the last time I purchased an avocado without feeling guilty like i’d just chosen a pony over my rent.

Having said that I never feel as though I’m being deprived of the high life. Truth be told there are a few things I do to make myself feel as though i’m living it up on a daily basis. A girl’s got to be prepared for the day that she has millions thrust into her bank account right?

  1. Always get to your office before everyone else and leave after everyone else so that you have a few private moments a day to pretend like all this shit is yours. Cost – $0

2. Go to nice restaurants for one glass of bubbly during happy hour, pretend that you’re a privileged holiday maker with investment properties all over the world. Cost – Approximately $10
