Change New York to LA and this pretty much sums it up for me

This sums it up for me. Here I sit unemployed, doing online coursework in hopes of making a career change. The tax return is partially spent and partially sitting in my bank account. That was to cover Pre-Sale for Vegas tickets. Glad I made a last minute decision to renew the U2.com sub! BUT....I'm now in a quandry. I've an offer of a place to stay and ticket to a Croke Park show. All I need is airfare. Why the hell do we have to pay for the flight at the time we book it?!!! I know I'll figure it out cuz it'll work out if it's meant to be....but this is a die hard U2 fan's dream to see the boys in their home town!!!!! It's on my "Bucket List"!

So I'm making a list of how I can come up with money and it includes what many others have mentioned....selling stuff on eBay, selling a ring, hosting a yard sale (which gets rid of a bunch of junk so that's like killing 2 birds with one stone!) working a piddly PT job just for U2 spending, doing some Temp work (Waiting till after July to find a real job since I should have Unemployment thru then), checking out those companies that pay for you to participate on forums (I made $200 tax free cash doing this), begging, borrowing and maybe even stealing to come up with what I need!

My priority is to see U2 in Dublin, so I hope I'm not forced to resort to selling or "trading" my Pre Sale code or tickets!! If I never see U2 live again after this tour, I would die a happy U2 fan having seen them in Dublin.

Anyway, that's how I feel about this dilemma today.

I am not going extravagant on this tour like i did on Vertigo because I am going to be moving from Arizona to Wash DC metro in fall sometime to start a full time govt job and have to watch my money.

I am saving by staying at friends places and using my flying benefits through my dads airlines. (Once i start working, i lose my flight benefits. ) Will maybe share a hotel/motel if i have to. I think i'm hitting between 3-5 shows this time around. Not 18 like last time.

I make reminder phone calls for a chiropractor (is that how you spell that???). He pays me $100 / month. I've been doing it since Feb '08 specifically for the tour so now I have $1300 to spend!

I did consider becoming a high-priced call girl, but I am settling for a combination of presents and just eating even more cheaply (vegetarian time folks, also i switched from CANNED beans to DRY beans which are even cheaper...that's right canned beans are out of my budget) and drinking less/pregaming at home more. Plus advanced planning to save on train ticket prices.
