    Smile I spend it as I go

    Hello. Would you tell me what the underlined sentence mean in this context below?
    Does it mean "I spend all the money as I move around?" Please help. Thank you.

    (These sentences are from a children's book.)
    --- I never managed to save enough money.
    I spend it as I go.
    It's because of the raspberry gummies at the corner store.

    Re: I spend it as I go

    Not "move around" but "go through life" -- as I live each moment.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
