Since J called me out on a previous post about DIY, I decided I should give some of it a try.
I find that one of the biggest challenges about waiting tables is that more than half the money you make, you earn in cash. It’s never deposited into your bank account like a normal pay cheque, and there isn’t really a way to keep track of how much bacon you’re bringing home. Typically, I spend all my tips instead of hitting up an ATM, but I’m currently saving up for some big ticket items (a flight home for a friend’s wedding, snow tires, winter boots and a winter coat, to name a few) and I realize that I can’t afford to squander my tips on nail polish and lattes.
So, a la Gail Vaz-Oxlade, I got my sh*t together and painted up some mason jars (I hear J is a fan of mason jars), and labelled them with my goals. Voila!
