To save up money, most people buy the cheaper soda option at the store, dine out once a week instead of three, or start carpooling. IN THIS ECONOMY, saving money is less of a nice-to-have and more of a necessity. A South Carolina student revealed that she takes pinching pennies to the extreme by flying to her internship in New Jersey. Her reasoning? The rent is too damn high!
While most of us are spending our vacation money on gas and groceries if you have a few extra coins in your bank account I suggest you take a trip on Disney’s newest cruise ship, Wish. Recently Wish made its inaugural debut showcasing a variety of amenities. But the one that is really going to dig into your pockets is a $5,000 cocktail on the menu at the ship’s Star Wars-themed lounge.
The fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things will be released in two parts: the first part comes out on May 27, and the second on July 1. Netflix probably decided to split the episodes in an attempt to build anticipation. But knowing what we reportedly know now about how much Netflix spent on the fourth season of Stranger Things, my guess is they were staggering the episodes so they had enough time to float some checks to whoever needed to get paid those $30 million they allegedly blew on each episode. Because yes, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, that’s exactly how much Netflix paid for each – EACH! – episode of the fourth season.
So apparently the phrase “Heyyyyyyy…can I borrow $20?” transcends all tax brackets.

But instead of $20, Andrew needed a loan for several million dollars.
Take a good look at that picture above, because it could be one of the last times you see that particular building with the words STAPLES Center on it. After 22 years as the aforementioned Staples Center, the Staples Center is no more. It would make 100% pure good sense to rename it the People’s Republic of Lakerton (in municipal partnership with Little Clipperville), but that’s not what’s happening here. It was announced yesterday that that building will be known as the Crypto.com Arena. That name might have made you roll your eyes and wonder if they’ll let just anyone name these buildings. And the answer would be yes, they do, so long as the check is big enough and it successfully clears at the bank.
Did you know The Weeknd is rich enough to purchase a $70 million estate in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles? Well, apparently he is, and that’s just what he did. He went ahead and bought a huge 33,000 square foot compound that looks like a house made in The Sims after unlocking a character called “Very Successful Music Guy.”
