On The Billfold Book Club Discusses Helaine Olen's 'Pound Foolish'

@cjm Holla back! I try and TRY to cut back on the latte factor in my life but it makes such a significant difference in my daily happiness that there is no way it's going to zero. Minimizing works for now.

On The Billfold Book Club Discusses Helaine Olen's 'Pound Foolish'

@caryatis $50k is definitely not an entry-level salary in most fields and in most areas of the country (I've been working 4 years and make barely more than half that). And we used to be able to assume that we'd make more as we grew older but I'm not buying it at this point.

On How Much Is Your Iced Coffee?

We use a french press to cold brew. For me it's iced nearly year-round, but my partner likes it hot in the fall/winter, so he has a french press and I have one too. it's truly love in our household.

On Millennials and Tiny Houses: A Match Made in Heaven

@TreeTownGirl BF & I would love to buy (not least for the sense of permanence; we move SO MUCH) but our combined income = about HALF of the requisite 20% down payment in our city (not the bay or nyc). So obviously that will never happen with our current jobs. We are both 25.

On Millennials and Tiny Houses: A Match Made in Heaven

I really don't get the tiny house love. I mean, I like to own a little shit as possible and I purge every time I move, which is usually more than once a year. But my BF and I (and our cat) live in 600 sq ft, and it feels so small for two people, an "office" for one person, and a cat. Our relationship would possibly end if we lived in 100 sq ft. I just do not get it.
