On In Which I Answer a Question About Marriage and Finances That 'Call Your Girlfriend' Asked Us in October
@Lemon This is Suze Orman's approach to it as well.
Awwwww! This is so sweet and lovely.
@Theestablishment One thing I do is, I do a lot of the prep work the night before, so all I have to do when I get home from work is throw everything into a pan (or call ahead and have my husband preheat the oven). We switch off nights cooking, so it's not like it consumes my every waking moment.
I cheat by looking at the recipes on Blue Apron's website and using them as a basis for weekly menu planning. Although most of the recipes don't really appeal to me anyway, so this is not a service I would ever use.
There was an Emerald Nuts ad campaign a while back that focused on their initials ("Envious Nomads love... Emerald Nuts") which really spoke to me, because my initials are EN. They never called for my endorsement, though.
@Lily Rowan I grated much much cheese as a child. It's like, the easiest way to involve a kid in making dinner!
@PeggyDear A lot of high-deductible plans (maybe all?) come with the opportunity to open a Health Savings Account. So theoretically you can take the extra money that you would have spent on a plan with a lower deductible and put it into an HSA. Then you can use that money on doctor's appointments, prescriptions, etc. The nice thing is that the money doesn't get taxed, as long as you use it on medical expenses, and it's yours to keep, as opposed to a "use it or lose it" account.
@TheDilettantista Touché. But how do they not lose track of their... I don't know, Band-Aid stash? Chapstick? Business card holder? Tiny container of concealer? (checking purse) Packets of Kleenex? Collection of ballpoint pens? I just carry around a lot of crap that I need on a semi-regular basis.
