I’ve learned to take “I don’t make that much” with a grain of salt. Especially when I see other people using crazy expensive phones and laptops. But anyway, what people actually mean when they say that phrase is that they don’t want to spend a lot of money on the topic that they were discussing. It’s perfectly understandable that someone has a 1500€ telephone, but thinks that the €2 dishwash soap is expensive. In reality, that’s absurd, but in human psychology I guess it makes sense. Money is a weird thing, you know. Some people will spend all their lives chasing it, and others spend all their lives swimming in it. If you think too much about it, maybe you’ll turn into a scrooge !
What I’m getting at is that ageplay is important to me. I don’t mind spending money on the things that I enjoy. I’m not going to use numbers to indicate what I spend on my little side. Instead, let’s say that I tend to use around 4-10 diapers per month, and my AB clothing (onesies, cloth diapers, plastic pants) are maybe 5% of my total wardrobe ^^. That last part, I do cheat a little bit. I tend to look for clothing that I can wear casually but are still kinda childish, and every soft pajama is an AB outfit to me.
My advice is to prioritize, anyway. Life necessities go first; housing, food, your health, travel (to see family and friends), internet connectivity. Fun things should take second place to necessities. If I had less money available for abdl, I would probably only use cloth diapers instead of disposable ones.
Hm yeah, as a side note, make sure that you’re an adult if you do follow me on tumblr. I don’t check who follows me, but it’s best that minors don’t interact with me. I’m not a pornblog, and technically I’m SFW, but I do tend to discuss 18+ topics occasionally.
