Budget. Budget. Budget. Rule of thumb, if you can’t afford your own car or crib than you need to really start assessing where your life is going. Your girl might like those South Beach ‘Brons but she isn’t going to want to kick it in your mom’s basement watching basic cable on your 13” TV for long. You shouldn’t be spending $600 resale prices on a sneaker when you can barely take care of your kids. In all seriousness, pay yourself first (pay your bills) and then have a little fun. You’re going to miss out on a few pairs you really wanted, we all do – the awesome part is companies keep re-releasing things and over time it will come back to you.
