You could also learn how to cook with vodka.

Or skip the whole Michelin Star thing, drink the vodka and cook yourself up a little college-style drunk food. 

14.

Then go online shopping, because in our eyes, that's the very best way to make sound and responsible financial decisions

15.

Once you've sobered up a little and come around to the rude awakening that is your credit card balance, clean out your closet and sell some old sh*t. You're welcome!
