NtS leather Fund

Well its time for me to have a game plan. Leathers by mid may. That means at the very least i can rely on my birthday (may 14) for mercy money.

I haven't decided EXACTLY what to get, but I've narrowed choices and set some goals.

I'm gonna get a 2 piece, in leu of a onesie, cause i may end up only using a one piece a few times a year. at least i can still get the jackets worth with a 2 piece.

I'm looking at Shift (i've got a shift jacket already, and LOVE it) but im not sure what their product line currently is. They have a perfect 2-piece setup i've seen on knee draggers, but the product may be discontinued cause i couldn't find much info on it.
Also considering Teknic, AGV sport, or good ol Joe Rocket.

PRICE- the biggest issue so far!
Lookin for around a 600 dollar set-up. give or take a hundy.

Sap Story- I cant just go out and buy leathers like i should be able to, cause i have to fund my own college this semester. thats right, 900 dollars a month for frickin school, out of my own pocket. Sucks, people, sucks. My loans got revoked for the spring because my parents marital status had changed and i could no longer keep getting the same loans for some god awful reason. I can only work about 25-30 hours a week, and pull in about 1100 dollars a month. 200 left for gas, insurance, phone. pretty much leaves me with -100 dollars and no wiggle room. Luckily my dad has offered to foot the difference. In a nutshell, my paychecks go to him now, and he doles out petty cash as i need it til my semester is paid for. like i have an allowance again. its lovely. so ya, i have no money from work to put towards my skin, im down, but im not out.

GAMEPLAN. I've set aside 25 dollars from each paycheck to go into a savings account labeled "death squad" with JP morgan chase bank.

by my calculations, saving 50 dollars a month, i should have about 175 dollars solely from my savings diversion tactic.
Now thats about 30% of the deal.

I've also put it upon myself to whore out... myself... to the farms i used to live around for odd jobs. so far, i insulated heat ducts in an old basement this monday for a whopping 50 bucks. if i can get 1 odd job for fiddy bones every three weeks or so that i can put solely into this savings account, that should equal up to about 200 dollars, maybe more.
we're now looking at 375 dollars.

okay, about 250 left to go.
Selling stuff. I have stuff. i'm going to sell it. hawk off some crap i dont need, i can mabye get another 50-100 (we'll say 75) dollars, depending on how desperate/creative i get.
Tax refund-most of this will go to school, but if i get more than 700 ( got about 825 last year) the rest is going towards the fund. I'll be moderate and say another 75 dollars.

I can find ways to get money here and there, but keep in mind i still have to live a life. Granted i havent taken a girl out or bought booze since i've started school, so its not much of a life.


So help me out. anything you have throw it at me. im always brain storming for ideas. Hell if you found a quarter in the couch
Donate that bitch.
I'm not against taking hand outs, i give money to the bell ringers at Christmas, i give blood, i figure society can start paying me back (and by society i mean you guys).

Hell, if you guys can actually muster up some decent scrilla i'll wear a speedo in the river at topoco for a half hour or shave my head for you. or maybe i'll sunburn twf on my back. pennies here and there add up.



In the meantime, heres my current balance. Wish me luck.

$50.00

I will give you one big punch in the balls for not already having leathers, but having already ridden at the gap dragging pegs. Something about that doesn't add up
