31 Tumblr Posts That Describe What It’s Like To Be Broke AF

There are a lot of benefits to not having a full-time job, but the biggest downside outweighs them all: the fact that, unless you were #blessed with a family who can give you everything you need and more, you’ll be broke AF most of the time. Jobs can be boring, overwhelming, and stressful, but they do provide you with the money you need to get through life, so… we kind of need them.

Unfortunately, when you’re in school full-time, you don’t have the extra time to work a full-time job. And so, you end up practically penniless almost all the time. You have to rely on your parents for money, and they probably make you do all sorts of chores before they give it to you. You can’t buy all the things you want. You dream about the day you won’t stress about your bank account. It sucks.

But, what can you do? Don’t complain about it – laugh about it. If that seems impossible, don’t worry, because these Tumblr posts are here to help. Tumblr users nail exactly what it feels like to stare at an empty wallet for weeks straight. And if you can’t change things right now, you might as well embrace them. Here are 31 Tumblr posts that describe what it’s like to be broke AF.
