I lead a bootstrap lifestyle. In two days time, I am due to be paid. I am paid monthly in advance and receive a reasonably good salary for my age, but its still not a lot. Most of my money will go to pay off my credit card, my car loan and my mortgage. I am left with enough to live on, but without extravagance. I know roughly how much I can spend on food and how often, how expensive presents I can buy at birthdays and how often I can go out for drinks with friends. Life's very organised.
