The Asshole Method: money management

4

Asshole’s see things for what they are and the fact of the matter is that most of you suck at managing your money. Here’s why:

You’ve been desensitized to the value of money. When you look at a price tag you just see a number instead of the hours of work required to obtain that object on the shelf.

You’re overwhelmed by all the stuff you need to track such as bills, emergencies, day-day purchases and treating yourself all while maintaining a balanced budget.

I know that you know someone with similar circumstances as you and their life is overwhelmed by massive credit card debt. The reason why comes down to a stupid belief system which some of you may be trapped in.

Stupid belief #1: “Who cares about credit card debt. I live for today and these things make me happy!”

Garbage manufactured in China or Bangladesh or wherever will not provide you with any fulfillment. Asshole’s know that the only way to elevate the amount of happiness in life is to tweak your personal and world views.

Stupid belief #2: “It doesn’t matter if I splurge on things that I don’t have money for right now because I’ll be living good eventually.”

Asshole’s know that there’s a higher likelihood that you won’t be living good eventually and that you’ll be unemployed. But let’s assume that you are living good one year from now. This stupid belief guarantees that you’ll continuously increase your spending and remain in debt for a long time to come. Asshole’s don’t spend money that they don’t have.

Stupid belief #3: “I want everyone to recognize how accomplished I am.”

Asshole’s aren’t insecure. Unfortunately you may be. Luckily I’m here to help you scrap this belief so that you don’t spend the rest of your life trying to keep up with others while sinking into more debt. Asshole’s have come to accept that there will always be someone who has more.

The Asshole method will make staying on top of your money very easy as you’ll start to do the right things without questioning yourself. I’m not a finance literature buff, but I’m capable of saving a sizable portion of my small income as I’ve adopted a strong belief system.

If you have $60 in your wallet, two days later you’ll wonder where it went. If you purchase a big bottle of cologne, you’ll use more of it than if you had bought a smaller bottle. The same applies to a bottle of liquor, cigarettes, pot and so on. This is the belief that demand increases to fill supply. If your brain is aware that something is there, I can promise you that it will find a way to consume it.

As an Ex-Costco employee, I can tell you in confidence that this company and similar ones will exist for a long time to come as people really believe they’re saving money when they buy in bulk. A lot of these people just see the cost-per-unit price and then toss a massive jar of nutella into their cart. As we’ve covered earlier they will now use a lot more nutella because their brain knows that there’s alot of it. There’s no need to buy more than a week’s worth of food unless a hurricane is coming. Last time I checked there’s no sign of a natural disaster on the horizon…
