Meet and fuck no card payments at all
Being in a relationship may enrich your life, but it's definitely doing no favors for your wallet. Let's start with how you got here (here being the point where you start stuffing credit card statements into your sock drawer in order to hide from the shame): It's Friday. Nothing too crazy, just meet a few friends for a drink or two at a local pub, maybe have a couple of appetizers and then retreat back home to watch a movie. Even if you two are splitting the tab now and then, all that socializing can cause some serious damage to your wallet. But, I still pine for the days when my cell phone usage consisted of a few work calls and the occasional call to friends, which would go something like this: “Hey, you want to get a drink tonight? Try to limit your nights out to one night a week or even less.
Find out where you're spending the most money on your girl and plug those holes ASAP. One to two nights out a week can break you faster than you think. If you like the socializing, then something has to give.
Please note, online mapping services may direct you to enter the Udvar-Hazy Center from Route 50. The smaller lockers accommodate small bags (such as backpacks) and coats; the larger lockers are 12" wide, 15" deep, and 29" tall, and accommodate most carry-on size bags. All are just minutes away from the Udvar-Hazy Center and provide a full complement of FBOs and car rental services.

By Jesse Bouche You've been dating for 6 months now and things are great – you're hanging out regularly, your friends like her, her friends like you and, well, things are good. You haven't saved a penny in the last four months and you're watching your credit card balance climb onward and upward like a balloon on parade day. Don't have unlimited texting and thousands of included daytime minutes? Either you go out and don't drink or you start inviting your friends over for drinks and dinner. Don't even get me started on full-blown dinners, the movies, big nights out or the tiny little extras like stopping on the way home for a fancy hot chocolate. But, and this is a big one, that doesn't mean you can get away with never going out, getting presents, planning trips or talking on the phone.
Let's extrapolate that and just say most guys are going to spend between $100 and $120 on a gift for their lady. There are so many gifts: That's $400-$480 and we haven't even started on those little surprises throughout the year or times that call for bigger presents (you've been there). That weekend skiing trip or drive through wine country could easily cost you well over $1000. If you're flying, you've got plane tickets and all the costs associated with getting to and from the airport (not to mention the obligatory $20 that seems to fly out of everyone's pockets any time they spend more than 30 minutes in an airport). Throw in 3 meals a day for two days ($200 a day for the both of you) and you've got yourself one expensive weekend. If not, subtract 10-20% of your take-home pay for savings.
