This morning we woke up with bad hangovers – a reminder of our debauchery to celebrate the New Year. The total cost of the night was $170: $150 for two tickets to a nice Chicago bar, and $20 for cab rides to and from said bar. If you count the $20 breakfast at IHOP this morning to ease the hangover, then the total cost of the night was $190.
The kicker? We now have $60 in our checking account. To last us until Friday.
We are Him and Her — a recently engaged couple living and working in Chicago. We are two of Suze Orman’s Young, Fabulous, and Broke. Don’t let our positive net worth fool you: much of that is tied up as life insurance and personal property. We have a mountain of debt that we’re trying to overcome, and now we’re trying to plan a wedding.
This is the second incarnation of this blog. We tried to start this a few months ago, but decided to put it on hiatus for a while. Join us this time around as we learn, as a couple, how to take control of our financial lives.
