Signs you’re broke

This is for every university student out there: every university student still in school, or waiting for that first job.

I’ve decided to compile a list of ways to know yo’ broke.


  1. keep wishing Frenchys had a sale
  2. begin thinking Kraft Dinner is vastly overpriced
  3. don’t have minutes for your cell phone
  4. trim your bangs yourself
  5. dye your hair yourself with el cheapo colouring
  6. use soap until there’s nothing left but little pieces (thankfully Ivory floats)
  7. think leftovers look mighty fine
  8. instead of brewing another pot of coffee, you drink the dregs from the bottom
  9. buy cheap coffee that was probably harvested by children in some developing country, and tastes like dying dreams
  10. floss more so you don’t have to go to the dentist
  11. quickly decide which medications you really don’t need
  12. collect McDonalds coupons for a night of fine dining
  13. think cable and satellite are for suckers
  14. realize glasses will do in lieu of buying more contacts
  15. plan your trips accordingly so you don’t burn too much gas in your car
  16. walk 4 kilometres round trip to the laundromat so you don’t have to pay for a taxi (just carrying the big stuff, though; the light stuff you can wash in your bathtub)
  17. decide water is blissfully delicious compared to alcohol
  18. think preservative filled bread is great because it lasts all week without growing green fuzzy spots
  19. feel PB&J sandwiches are a good source of protein
  20. put bread bags inside your boots when they leak

If you find yourself nodding in agreement, you, my friend, have been to university in the Maritimes.

You begin thinking green tomatoes look appetizing.
