I remember thinking, "I can't even spend a dollar"

Working multiple jobs to pay for college can put you in a dangerous mindset of making sacrifices on things you shouldn't: like books. Instead of pinching every penny, I wish I had taken the time to prioritize the most important expenses: those I need to run my life and those that make me uniquely happy.

Take my quote and apply it to the things in your life that serve as "waste”.
