WHAT I DID NOT KNOW THIS ABOUT LEVERAGE
I tend to eat a lot of carryout and justify it to myself financially because it tends to last through a few meals. But I have a brand new dietary restriction that rules out a lot of leftovers, who even knew that was possible? I think it will end up changing how I eat quite a bit and for the cheaper.
@Lily Rowan That's what I thought too -- like 10/$1.
Also, I saw a commenter somewhere snark that her selection of foods might make a good "detox recipe," which is sad because it's just a group of wholesome ingredients. Are we this jaded? A lot of GOOP stuff ends up coming across like general health shaming instead of like that Gwyneth is a wackadoo who wants to ply your fascia. "She cooks too healthy!"
I would guess she plans to grill the one ear of corn and I'm getting a heavy Tex-Mex vibe from her shopping trip -- it's a smart cuisine to choose on a budget, at least. Same for Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. This header image is flawless and made me LOL.
Have literally never realized that, of course, Mike is short for Michael. "Hello Michael" read itself in a HAL 9000 voice I can't unhear.
@PeggyDear Aw, it doesn't work for me either (unless there's a gaggle of very tall women somewhere), but something I love doing is taking some budget that works for me ($20?) and spend a long morning or afternoon going to thrift stores. Just think of it as a macro swap for money.
@HashtagSTEM Thanks for saying so, and I'd love if the artificial Great Wall around STEM could just not be reinforced by a site whose mission is quite quantitative in the first place. We're all here to write narratives about our financial math.
