When I was just out of college, I did a fair amount of babysitting, which gave me more money in two ways: The cash I earned, obviously, but also the money I didn't spend by not going out on those nights!

On Saying "No I Can't" Because of Money

@garli Yeah, that's interesting. I thought I would see that in college, but ended up with a very not-rich group of friends. And my richest friend in high school is the one who always said she couldn't afford things!
