Cosmetic surgery can be pricey, but that doesn’t mean you should steal city money to fund your new behind. One woman employed by the city of Gainesville, Florida did just that — used over $8,000 in city credit cards to get a new booty.
Here are four much better ways to save up for your BBL that don’t include banditry.
Squirrel Away Coffee Money
Instead of whisking away your spare change every morning, toss it in a jar and see how much you have at the end of the month.
It might not sound like much, but when you add up the number of times you drop $5 to $10 on a gourmet coffee, bagel, soda or whatever your cup of tea is, you’ve got yourself some considerable savings for your Brazilian butt lift.
Follow the “30 Day Rule”
Nip impulse buying in the bud with this rule. It’s easy—just wait 30 days before buying anything new that’s not a necessity. A hot new pair of shoes comes across your Facebook feed? Save it and wait a month. If you still have to have them in 30 days, treat yourself if you must. Otherwise, consider it money saved.
Swap Wine for a Walk
Going out with your girlfriends for a drink can be costly, so why not swap your wine night for a stroll around the block? You get the added benefit of getting in your exercise while hanging with your girls.
Clean out Your Closet
Sell your old clothes, but don’t get to replacing them just yet. Save up for your BBL, then treat yourself to a few new pieces that flatter your new figure.
