In 12 months time, I plan on walking into Gucci and buying a new bag with $5.00 notes.

In 12 months time, I plan on walking into Gucci and buying a new bag with $5.00 notes.

Drug money? Tips? Or payments from my regular client Kevin who I see on the reg for his 2am lapdance? Ha, I joke! Unfortunately saving for this money wasn’t as fun as dancing around in gold lurex panties while strangers stuffed them full of colourful notes.

I’m far too busy to throw a fourth job in the mix, but I’ll admit there’s a slight appeal when it comes to dancing in a dimly lit room to bad music while strangers throw money at me (do I need therapy now that I’ve admitted this on the internet?).

“Just remember – although it’s smart to save, money is still meant to be enjoyed!”

So come on and tell us Peta! If you weren’t divying out pills or shaking your thang in front of strangers then where’d you get the cash?

Well, I saved it with a simple tip I learned from a client! It’s surprisingly super easy to do and actually fun.

So I confided in my clients that saving money is a total drag. It’s kind of like having a Chanel handbag you’re never allowed to use. It just playfully sits there teasing you to spend it, when my impulsive nature wanted to spend it on treats like silk knickers and expensive magazines.

One of my clients suggested I save up all my $5.00 notes for a year and use it as my play money. I laughed and imagined I’d probably have enough to buy a subscription to Vogue and a bottle of bubbles; I really couldn’t imagine it stretching much further.

She laughed and challenged me to do it for three weeks. And being the competitive asshole I am, I said yes.

Three weeks in and I’d already saved $125.00. Which is basically 12 months of Vogue and a bottle of Veuve. Well, fuck!

And now I’m well on my way to toting around the latest Gucci for Christmas. Cha-ching!


Anytime you find a $5.00 note in your wallet you’re going to do the grown up thing and save it. Or, this could be any denomination of money you wish, but I picked $5.00 notes for the fact they’re the prettiest to photograph (am I joking or am I serious. I don’t even know anymore.)

You’re going to put it aside for a certain amount of time. Whether that’s three months, six months or a year.


Honey, you’ll have cold hard cash to splash on whatever your pretty little heart desires.

Whether that’s a new Gucci bag, a holiday with your bestie or even a bottle of Bolly whilst you throw your saved fivers at strippers wearing gold lurex panties – the choice is yours!

Just remember – although it’s smart to save, money is still meant to be enjoyed!


PS. I was naturally vibing an LA stripper feel for the shoot – you dig?


And some Gucci to tempt you…
