Right now, I need about $15,000 to get myself out of this HUGE hole I've dug. I have parents who are not SUPER wealthy, but let's just say they have their poop in a group when it comes to finances/money issues. I can't tell you the # of times I've asked them to 'spot me $100 till payday' and they always come through.
However, I haven't always been honest w/ them about WHY I needed the money - often I've come up with some really elaborate tales of how I screwed myself up in my checking account or forgotten a major bill was due, etc...
So, I am sick to death of all this lying and living in the RED. What I decided to do is this: I am coming clean. I am going to make a spreadsheet, showing my parents what I do w/ my money - including all the frivolous/stupid crap I spend it on...including the money I owe for "check n go" and all that stuff.
I am hoping this will convince them to help me get a debt consolidation loan.
