Money. Throw out old bills and take new ones out directly from the bank

most of these are really stupid.

socks. if you wear cheap wal-mart socks the stitching around the toes really gets uncomfortable. then there's the fact that they don't last for shit. i'm not saying go balls out for socks -- i buy mine for $2 a pair at Champs -- but don't buy a dozen pairs for $6 and expect comfort.

haircuts. having a shitty cut can kill your entire look. if there's one thing you should invest in, it's finding a decent stylist who can make your hair look presentable. you can pay $12 at supercuts for a shitty haircut, or pay $30ish at a better salon and get someone who knows what they're doing. it's worth it for me as a once-a-month expense.

Really? You don't want to set the bar too high. She's usually too interested to really care where you're eating at anyway.

Someone earlier said climbing gear. I agree times one thousand.

First date, really? What if it sucks bad, then your stuck with a crummy date thats expensive. I always go the route of Drinks, then on date two maybe a reasonable dinner. Id never go to a fancy place.

And flowers? Isnt it the thought that counts? I dont know crap about flowers and cant say Ive given them often, but the $7 bouquet from the grocery seemed to work out just fine -- but not as good as the free hand picked one that is accompanied by a cheesy line during a walk with her, but I dunno...

If you're not in one, you're in the other: shoes and mattress.
