Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles I am a 32 year old woman living in L. A. I am a celebrity personal assistant, and I make $36,000 a year. It's my take home is $3000 a month. 977 a month goes to rent. $200 goes to car payment and insurance. I spend $150 on utilities, and I spend $30 on monthly subscriptions. That leaves around $1643 to spend. I have $0 savings and $0 in credit card debt, and I have $0 in student loans. Being a celebrity personal assistant is very rewarding, but it is actually kind of hard. I am on call all the time. Sometimes it's fun. Sometimes it's like, Man, I wish I could just, you know, have a chill moment. But you're just kind of always on the go, and I am very much responsible for this other person's schedule. Here's my last statement. My most expensive purchase was at Ralphs for $65.96. I was dating this dude and he was throwing an oyster party and I was like Oh, cool. Like you have other food and he's like, Not it's just oysters. And I'm just like, how many people are. There's, like, 10 15 and Ashley, Are you kidding me? He's like, No, don't get food, Don't get anything else. I'm like Whatever. I ended up buying snacks, drinks, alcohol, food should everything. And then everybody ate everything. Think everybody devoured it. I was want to get more food. He didn't pick me back $40 at the Virgil. That was my friend's birthday. $30 at quicker Printer That's another print shop in my house is like a local print shop, and they do an amazing job, and they're very affordable. I run a hip hop game show in L. A. And I printed a bunch of rappers heads and had them laminated $30 at El CID, which is a bar 31 76 at. I probably bought something off like a vendor. I don't know $50.70 at Standard Station, and that's the dude again. It was fucked up because at this point I knew I didn't want to do, and I think maybe like a couple of days before, like we went out for drinks and he bought me a couple of during soy felt obligated to, you know, get the next round. And it was $50. And I hated him when I was just so annoyed. But I still spend the money. It was just so down like, What am I doing? Spent $18 at Sprouts Farmers Eagle Rock. They have Hanson soda, and I bought so many sodas for me and my roommate, we really like Hanson's $13.9 at by Chloe by Chloe is a vegan restaurant. I'm not a vegan, but it's really good, and I definitely spur tch at that place. I love it. $12.50 at June, that is a falafel spot. $7.65 that piehole eight a savory pie and it was really good. I have no regrets. $13 that mo. I'm pretty sure that's food. L. Raja a stack of $18. I think I bought somebody food. $7.75 at Joy Joy is a Taiwanese street food spot, $11.92 at a market in another food place. I'm sensing a pattern. It's good, but I'm never gonna go back there because it's very overpriced. $14 At the den on Sunset Hollywood It was my old boss's birthday. So the next debit is Venmo. It's $20. This one's a little tricky because I don't know where it's from. And I feel like Venmo is very dangerous to us all. My most frequent purchases at Trader Joe's, 26 47 I go to Trader Joe's pretty often they're very affordable and, like, good and fresh, and I can tell you exactly what I bought. I bought two little salads. I bought two avocados. I bought a regula. I bought cherry tomatoes. I bought cucumbers. I bought balsamic vinegar and I make a salad out of the The next church is 1 50 that's parking in Santa Monica. And that definitely expired. And I definitely got a ticket. $8. At the nail salon, I usually get my eyebrows wax like religiously. They're not waxed right now. I'm letting them grow out. As you can tell. It's a joke. $15 at CBS. Usually I'll buy almond milk and kind bars and sometimes alcohol. If it's on sale. 7 94 actually $20.51 at CBS, and I definitely also bought snacks. I guess I love sacks. Jesus. All of these papal charges I am fairly certain that they are overcharges. My bad habits are definitely transportation and eating out, and most likely, eating out involves alcohol. Elbow Raja, 10 62. It's a really good, cheap place. It's walkable from my house. I really like this place and I can tell you right now that if I was eating $10.62 worth of food there, it lasted me three days. I was with that dude again and we got coffee and it was expensive. That was one cup of coffee and it was 5 75 So $15 again, if that man I bought him coffee, and I think I bought him a bagel, a swell. I just like regret anything that was associate it with him, even though I was really good coffee. $7.81 at an Arco, because I'm sure I was buying sugar free Red Bull God yeah! 11 86 At eat in jail for a very simple drink, $2.75 that juiced. That is a Jew shop in Hermosa Beach. I was on a date $9.81 at Kitchen Downtown L. A. I am assuming that's a food spot. $22.54 sonnets at A. M. C. I went on a date and I bought the popcorn and the soda in the Candies. L. A. Tropicana market. $13.14. It's another Mexican spot near my house, and I know that if I brought $30 worth, it lasted a couple of days. I like that spot, but they have a lot of attitude there, So I stopped going. My most unusual purchase is World of Warcraft 22 99 is Whole Foods, and I really try to avoid that place because it's a little over price. But if I'm around the area and I need something, I will go there. And I apparently did $11 at Hollywood in Prague. I gotta drink with friends. I got into the show for free. My friend was performing, and I think I bought him a drink. $25 50 cents on Chinese food. I'm like obsessed with. I think I should just, like, not eat out so much because it's a lot. My relationship with money is terrible. I don't know how to save money. I eat out a lot. I just I I spend money on things I know I shouldn't and I never threw up everywhere talking about money. I am interested in personal finance, but I find it a little daunting because I'm a freelancer. So let's say, for instance, this month I'm making, like 3000. But then, you know, next month I can be making like, 7000. It's always in flux, so I never feel like I'm allowed to save or even invest. Do spend money on self care. I go to therapy. I think that self care is very necessary.
