Well, Phillip, I wasn’t smart about how I spent my money while I worked in banking. Yes, I made a very comfortable paycheck — but I was far from being “rich.”

We’re all human. We all have something we indulge in. Fortunately for me (and my bank account), I got my shit together and put a stop to my excessive smoothie purchases.

I cook 95% of my meals, so I don’t spend much money on dining out. So, I treat myself to smoothies every now and then (32 oz. smoothies from Smoothie King get pricy, I agree).

To answer your question, it was normal for me because I didn’t know what “normal” was. You just don’t know what you don't know, until you figure it out and do something about it.
