• André Leon Talley gives sound financial advice. But you’d better make some rich friends in order to follow it.
Instead of paying for frivolities like clothes or going to the movies, get them for free from your privileged pals: “I’m not going to go to the local theater to spend $12 … when I can get a screening copy of a film. I don’t get screeners myself, but I can borrow from my friends or go to their house to watch. Why spend money on movies when you can spend it on gas? Or dry cleaning? Or groceries?” You’ve got a point there Mr. Talley, how about we make friends, and you can spend your money on my gas, dry cleaning, and groceries? (The Cut)
