We can all remember our very first job. For me, it was 2004 and I was working as a cashier and stocker at a local drugstore chain in my small hometown in Oklahoma. I was paid a competitive $5.25 an hour, and it was enough for a high school freshman to be excited about. For my first two weeks of work, I had earned myself a whopping $120 paycheck. And with my riches, I went to the nearest Wal-Mart, where I purchased my own $90 television. The best part is that $90 piece of teenage pride and clunk is still in full use today at my mother's house. In a recent AskReddit, Redditors were asked what they had bought with their first paychecks. Some of the stories will make you laugh and some will pull at your heartstrings. Find out for yourself.
