7 truths about money on Post-its that will make you laugh before you cringe

Money is tricky.

Chaz Hutton, a 32-year-old Australian, knows this all too well.

Hutton illustrates the surprises, disappointments, and hard truths of adulthood — including the difficulties of earning, spending, and saving money — in stick-figure form through Post-it notes he then Instagrams.
