I get so annoyed with people asking for money around the place.

(Warning: The following rant is reminiscent of the one your parents told you about walking to school, barefoot in the snow whilst carrying the horse).

When I came to Second Life I decided that the cost of the broadband was the only real money I was going to spend in SL, so I worked out ways to get money without bothering people in sims who are trying to shop. Money trees are great and so are contests at clubs and you get to meet cool people in the process. Nowadays I DJ for my SL spending money, which is fun and a great way to make new friends! Hmm, I am sensing a theme here...

Yesterday in the chat of a group I am in, the discussion turned to the fact that it costs lots to look really good in SL. I totally disagreed and said so.

I am always getting comments about my clothes, hair and skins and I am proud to say that most of the time I got them free or nearly free. I think the wisest thing to do is to join quality groups that love to reward their members and also to keep your eyes out when you are wandering about. The other thing to do is read blogs like mine, or other fantastic blogs I have listed, and go and grab the items for yourself. Hunts are also an awesome way to find amazing things, and some of my best, most favourite items, have been gathered in hunts. Hunting is also a neat way to meet some fantastic people. Today you will see some items I collected from Midnight Mania Boards and Lucky Chairs. This is also a great way to gather great stuff and I love chatting to people while I am waiting for letters to change. One item I will show you took me three days to get. I stalked that store to death. Haha!

So, if you are a newbie please don't resort to begging for money from me. I will help you with finding places to get quality freebies and help where I can, but earn your own freaking money if you want it! Cough. Rant is now complete.

Today I am going to give you the total of what I spent on ALL the items I show you.
