You’re in luck, #GIRLBOSS, as this mantra applies buses. Some people may say that I was a horrible person for haggling at a thrift store, but I was just another person trying to get by. BY the end of the week, those seemingly insignificant tiny discounts had made a material difference, and I could put the money I’d saved toward something else in the business.
If you’re frustrated because you’re not getting what you want, stop for a second：Have you actually flat-out asked for it? If you haven’t, stop complaining. You can’t expect the world to read your mind. You have to put it out there, and sometimes putting it out there is as simple as just saying, “Hey, can I have that?”
That being said, if you don’t like talking about money, I get it. There are ways to make the whole thing less, traumatic. The first piece of advice I can give you is to learn to separate your money from your emotion as much as you possibly can. Whether someone is asking you for money, you’re asking someone else, or you’re contemplating a significant purchase, approaching financial decisions as calmly and as rationally as possible will make everything a whole lot easier.
