This is adorable! And I was just thinking about how other peoples' productivity systems (or lack thereof) work for them but might drive another person up the wall. It genuinely makes my dad angry that my mom has 20,000 unread emails in her inbox but it doesn't bother her at all! I thought having that many unread emails might be a parent thing, but a friend of mine in her 20s has about that many, too.
That happened to me once, the first time I got my hair colored. It was an all-over color, but it was still $150. Gahhh! I was 22 and making $1500/month then.
On Lost Luggage
My bag didn't make it onto my connecting plane once, but it was delivered to me a day later. Not fun but not the end of the world. However, I wish I had known or thought to contact my credit card companies (AmEx and Discover), which reimburse for "travel essentials" if your bags are delayed by a certain amount of time. Has anyone ever utilized this service?

@EM I don't understand how people like that girl find other people willing to date them.
@TheDoctorsCompanion BROAD CITY
Does he actually live there, or does he have a place of his own? This is insanity.
@garli plus with Stitch Fix there is usually at least one accessory piece (earrings, scarf) that you could keep to give as a gift if there's absolutely nothing that you'd wear yourself.
If it means interest rates go down, to compensate for the cost savings automation provides, sign me up. But this should be opt-in, probably. Also, If you make $45k/yr before tax, as I do, 10% of your income over $25k is $300 per month. Which is more than I pay under the current system, but I would be paid off sooner.
@garli I do it! I like it a lot. It's $20/month but if you buy one of the items then the $20 goes towards the cost of that item (or items.) Everything I have gotten has been cool and interesting and probably something I wouldn't have picked out for myself. If you can afford it and are interested, do it for a month to see how it goes.
