I honestly think that the Grown-Ass-Adultiest thing to happen is when you’re pretty darn broke until payday, and also, you have no food in your house. It’s the WORST. What I do to preemptively combat that situation (no, it’s not make more money or spend money better, lol!) is to stock up on good pantry stuff as the year progresses, so when I’m totally out of money, I still have food to hold me over until I get money.
