I’m going to Vegas in April!

Obviously, I’m super excited. I’m going down with one of my buddies and his brother, two great guys who I know I’m going to have a lot of fun with. The trip is going to be for a week, which I feel is a good balance between too short and too long. And don’t worry blog readers, I’ll have plenty of posts so you don’t miss a minute of action here.

It was my buddy’s idea to go to Vegas. I’m just along for the ride. Luckily for me, he wants to have a good time on a budget. We’ve decided to all split a hotel room and to play in the cheap poker tournaments. Having cheap friends is awesome.

I want to take about $700 for spending money, about $100 per day. This doesn’t include the flight and hotel. I don’t want to pay for it though. Obviously I have to, so I’ll just have to find a way to earn $700 extra. Maybe I could sell my body. Ladies? Any takers?

The first thing I’m going to do is pay myself first. I rent out my basement, so every month I use that money as my spending money. I’m going to take $100 of each month’s rent for both March and April and use that as my first $200. I’ve also got a lot of crap I can sell on ebay. I’ve got an ipod, a couple digital cameras, a very unique collector’s item (I don’t want to explain it, but I’m hoping I can get a couple hundred bucks for it) plus some dvds and books. I figure all of that will net me about $400.

That leaves it to the final $100. I’m not exactly sure how I’m going to get that, but I’ll figure something out. I can do some grunt work for my dad. I have a whole bunch of bottles just taking up space in my garage. I can even be more aggressive than my $200 savings goal. At the end of the day, I’d rather find a way to earn the extra money.

Or I can make some calls and get one extra customer. Maybe I’ll just do that.

Tell everyone, yo!
