People are obsessed with this teen's clever trick to save money

For many people, going to college is the first time you truly have to manage a budget.

A student and standup comedian from Los Angeles named Daniel Cabral told BuzzFeed News he has problems wasting money on "dumb things."

Like, for instance, he spent $30 on pineapples.

The internet agrees that the idea is genius, and it has since been retweeted more than 200,000 times.
