@the rat lady yeah, now I want some funfetti...
@TheDilettantista this might be the best thing I've seen on the internet all day, INCLUDING the new AD trailer (sorry, Bluths). I literally ran to the bathroom so I wouldn't arouse suspicion in my cubicle.
@coastalelite YES CAN IT BE??? I would read that so much.
I've gotten at least 50% of my furniture from fancy estate sales - including a pristine mid-century modern couch that was custom upholstered in the 1950's for the home of a prominent family in my city. I paid $75 for it and they gave me paperwork to go with it (original receipt of purchase and the receipt from when it was reupholstered). I think it's probably my best purchase EVER.
I may have gone a little crazy. I estimated $600 for Euros, underwear and an adapter. Good news: I found my adapter hidden in a pocket in my suitcase, so I didn't need one of those. However, I ended up impulse-buying a dress at Anthropologie ($100) and a dress at H&M ($20). I ended up spending around $675 this weekend. It's ok, I guess, because I have a ton of frozen soup & beans & pot roast so I'm pretty good on groceries for awhile. These are my first clothes purchases since before Christmas!
@ellabella Thank you!! I always forget about Amazon, somehow...
@Megs Ok, this actually made me laugh out loud in my cubicle. Perfection! "Both dollars!"
@Megs Same here, I'm like... "You can try to rob me, but good luck stealing anything worth more than a small cup of gas station coffee"
this will be a spendy weekend, negating the no-spend weekend last week. I'm going to Italy (!!!!) in two weeks (!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and I have miscellaneous costs associated with that - $507.50 for 350 Euros. I need to buy a new adapter because my old one decided to move permanently to Italy when I studied abroad. Maybe $40? I have no idea. I also need general travel items like tiny bottles for my toiletries, band-aids, and... who knows. Maybe I'll "forget" all of that and buy Italian band-aids and see what happens. On another note, I'm embarrassed by the state of my underwear and am planning on going to Target and replacing it all. $30? $50? I haven't bought underwear in quite a long time. I estimate $600 to be safe, and that makes me want to barf.
@joyballz Ha, I wish - I think the secret is "house-sit for your parents in the suburbs, eat all of their food and drink their beer"
