@KimO yes, I am very interested in what people's menu's are like that in are in that $50 per week category are like, because I am certain what I am spending is much higher than that... like close to double...
@Mike Dang Ahh fair enough. Thinking back, we did spend lots of dollars on our machine and the grinder. My boyfriend and I both like to drink espresso type coffees quite a bit so it did make sense for us, but admittedly if you are just having a random one here and there it does likely make more sense to just go buy espresso at a cafe. Although crawling out of bed on a late Sunday morning and having a tasty latte in your jammies is amazing.
I am curious about the reasoning behind the advise to buy espresso based drinks rather than making them at home?
@anachronistique Haha, my boyfriend did this too (rented the closet to someone) when he was like 18 and living in an apartment with a bunch of people. They were all people who just wanted to live as cheaply as possible.But yeah the closet rent was extremely low, not $1000.
@Megano! I am in Alberta and I almost always have to do the chip and pin thing at any restaurants I go to.
@swirrlygrrl Haha, yeah I was quite surprised to hear this. Both my debit and credit card have had a chip in them for a few years already.
@ATF@twitter I am currently wrapped in a blanket at my desk right now! A snuggie would actually be more convenient though...
@amirite Haha, also true. If you have any interest in immigrating to Canada, getting a degree here is actually a pretty decent way to do it. You get a work permit to stay for a couple years after your done and some decent options for permanent residence after that.
@shan@twitter Huh, I realized US education was insanely expensive, but I did not realize that it was to this degree. I just looked up undergrad tuition at McGill for international and yikes! This makes me extra glad I grew up in my happy Canadian bubble where my parents scraped the cash together for my tuition. If costs were anything like what we are talking here I do not think I would have been able to get a degree...
Is this really worth it even when they would be paying International Student Tuition?
