I was several nights late paying rent last week. I have been in this same lake house for several years, and have developed a rapport with the landlordâ€¦ Because of this relationship, she allowed me to slide those several nightsâ€¦ She told me that it couldn’t happen again, because every week she had occupants giving him excuses for late payment. I decided to crack down on my budget and reduce spending, so that I am not in the same predicament next week! In a few weeks I should have some extra money saved up as an emergency fund, until then I need to tighten up! I started to look at the local cannabis dispensary websites to see if anyone was having a special sale. One of my largest expenses is on cannabis, so that was the first venue I needed to split spending; Normally I buy everything from the cannabis dispensary, so that I know exactly what I am getting, then this time I decided to call an old friend, who I knew sold cannabis out of her garage as a side hustle to her day task. I discovered that I could get an ounce of cannabis from him for half of what I was paying at the cannabis dispensary. Once I bought it and smoked it, I realized why her marijuana was so cheap – it was crap! The old saying goes “you get what you spend my money for” and when it comes to cannabis it is 100% true. Now I need to choose between smoking quality cannabis or getting my rent paid on time.
