Money matters

Kim Kardashian thinks it can be a right old nightmare sticking to a monthly budget

Tell us something we don’t know, Kim.

APPARENTLY, KIM KARDASHIAN is just like the rest of us when it comes to money management.

Well, you know, relatively speaking.


The mother-of-three recently revealed that her parents ensured she worked for everything she had as a teenager – an attitude which she has carried into adulthood and family life with Kanye West.

Yeah we know, we’re struggling with the idea of Kim crossing her fingers at the ATM on a Friday night just like the rest of us, but apparently she’s no stranger to the stress of sticking to a budget.

It’s just that her budget is 1,000,000 times larger than ours, right?

fucking career

Speaking to WealthSimple, the 37-year-old insisted that keeping on top of her finances is a full-time job.

Sounds kind of familiar, to be fair. Well, except for everything she says, of course.

I’m really on top of my financial situation. I do everything. I see everything, write every cheque, I’m on top of every last detail. I was always taught to be like that.

And then she loses us even further.

Like it’s definitely helpful to have a manager or someone pay your bills so they go out on time. But I think once you start giving too much control away, you could really just lose sight of what you have and what you need to do, especially if you spend a lot and have a big lifestyle.

Oh, and then she goes all Eddie Hobbs on us, and talks of budgets and balances.

I have a budget. I don’t talk about specifics — I find that to be tacky and just inappropriate. I don’t talk about like, oh, this is my budget, and this is my shopping budget and my living budget. But I know what I spend monthly and what it costs to run my household and what it costs to run this home.

Apparently, Kim isn’t into splashing the cash, unless she knows a work commitment is coming up which will help her cover it.

We know, we’re a little skeptical as well.

It’s hard all the time to stick within a budget, for sure, but I think it’s a good guideline. And I’m the type of personality where I’m like ‘Okay, I really want to buy this, so I have to make this in order to be able to buy that for myself’. So I’ll make it happen. I’ll say to my business managers, like, “Okay, I really want to get this, but I’ll do this work thing to clear that out and balance it out.

Alright whatever you say, hun.
