KATHRYN VARDEN: I’m Kathryn Varden and we’re here at Organic Harvest in Hoover, Ala. And I’m gonna tell y’all what’s in my wallet.

I have money, I have a movie receipt — it was The Hangover 2. It was hilarious. I have my license. I just got my license in December. It was awesome, I got it on my 16th birthday and so much freedom. It was amazing. I have many Walmart receipts because I love to go shopping at Walmart. I have a Target receipt from today. I bought three dresses and a tank top, and cosmetics. I spent $115.37. There goes my paycheck.
