This strikes me as the same attitude as people who claim that everyone on benefits is a "welfare queen." Just because a small portion of people abuse the system doesn't mean it's their fault the system is broken! It doesn't mean the system should not be reformed. It does not mean that is is not a nessisary system.

I love it everybody, optimization, prioritization, blind spots! @Amanda@twitter My hair DOES break off in chunks! Is that not cute, should I do something about that? @Halifax Machine I have a Pinterest where you can look at ALL the art that is my favorite art! http://pinterest.com/petitesophist/art/
Last time someone asked me for a card, I tore off a corner of my notebook paper and wrote THE BILLFOLD DOT COM on it. networking!
I'm just glad no one has uncovered my shady secret agenda of tricking Billfold readers into reading about Karl Marx and thinking about duck penises.
These charts are so good, and so is the tone of this blog. Seems like some financial blogs/websites are a lot judgier, where if I am someone who chooses to buy more expensive things there is something wrong with me. I make a lot of good financial decisions, and sometimes I spend more money on something than someone else, and I don't think this makes me crazy (unless I can't afford it). Buying quality items from a grocery store who treats its workers fairly is important to me; it's something that enriches my life and brings me happiness. Yes, I could just eat mostly bulk beans and rice, and never eat meat, but since I can afford it, I chose to buy more expensive food. Not everything has to be about spending less money, and it's nice to have a place where I'm not berated for my choices, even if they are different from someone else's choices.
I've got an office with a door right now, and if my boss was like "You can have a $5,000 raise but you have to give up your office" I might have to think about it for a minute.
Logan, if you can be "proud" of an internet stranger, I'm really proud of you for this post and the way you're taking active steps to get your money together, and doing it so honestly and publicly. Thanks for being you, lady.
The tone of this piece makes me so glad this is not the tone of everything else on the Billfold. Ha ha ha, the writer works as a recruiter, you don't say! Ha ha ha, the commenter who's rah-rahing it down here is a volunteer LinkedIn consultant or something, you don't say!
William Foster is there a Twitter account where we may follow your and Mr. Biscuit's foibles?
