With so many people living beyond their means, being able to admit you can’t afford it is a good thing. But don’t use it as a crutch and don’t use it when you’re simply choosing to spend your money elsewhere. It’s more empowering and positive to say “I’m choosing to spend my money on something else.”
Here’s 10 people from Twitter who can’t afford it right now.
