Little note from Sam: As the Cash Chronicles editor I must admit that I get some fairly predictable submissions. They say predictable things. They have predictable interests. They have predictable expenditure with predictable bedspreads and predictable sneaker purchases and predictable wine expenses. So when this Cash Chronicles landed in my inbox office… let’s just say that it makes me feel like how I imagine Black Eyed Peas songs make the general public feel at live sporting events: pumped the fuck up! Beth… you really made me laugh!
I absolutely love how different Cash Chronicles every entry we get is. Hearing how you all spend your weeks makes me laugh SO MUCH! So please keep sending them in so that we can keep publishing them! The trick to getting more is by helping us grow the reader base. So as always, like – comment – share and contribute.
