What I used to spend my money on compared to now


«« past   |   future »»

A box of Little Debbie Star Crunch from the Food Lion on Florida Street in Greensboro, NC, 1989 and a six-pack of Mickey's Big Mouth.



A B&G Apple Pie and a 10 oz bottle of coke from Yum Yum Better Ice Cream, also in Greensboro, in 1992.

An oatmeal creme pie made by King Foods of Winston-Salem, NC, sold for 25 cents at the bodega on my corner in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and a six-pack of Brooklyn Lager, in 1997.

A cup of banana pudding from Sugar Sweet Sunshine, on the Lower East Side in 2004.

Tuition at My Little Village Preschool in 2008.

In 2010, whatever's on sale, hopefully peanut butter Clif Bars and India Pale Ale.


Things I've never purchased:
large, colorful tattoos
cocaine
a Caribbean vacation
limited edition sneakers
sex
