On The Year We Saved $10K: Homes and Weddings

@beastlyburden Reading comprehension for the win! I was maybeee overreacting due to financial anxiety in my life right now, so thanks for clarifying for me.

On The Year We Saved $10K: Homes and Weddings

@polka dots vs stripes I mean, I am impressed by each of these stories, but I can't fathom having a 75k combined income and each month paying bills (for two people - two student loans? two cars? grocery bill? etc), spending $500 in discretionary money, AND saving $2,000. Just...how?

On The Beach: A Bargain or A Bummer?

@andnowlights You need a linen tunic and adorable straw hat! It doesn't help with the people, unfortunately, but does keep the sun off you without needing sunscreen.

On The Beach: A Bargain or A Bummer?

@Ester Bloom Some beaches in NJ are pay-for-access, and those are the ones that are worth it (mostly families, no drunk bros).

On The Beach: A Bargain or A Bummer?

@Allison Same. I love water and the beach, particularly oceans, and the uncomfortable swimsuits, sunscreen acne, and sand everywhere are so worth it.

On Our Attempt at a $20-a-Day Budget

@theballgirl Right?? I thought it would be like, a hundred a month, max, but $500 ?!?!?!?!?!??! I cannot imagine a life where fighting for that is not worth it. Especially as a freelancer - if I wanted to fight it I'd probably have to take vacation days to be on the phone, visiting the bank, fighting with people, etc.

On On the Purchase of New Pillows

@ThatJenn This is exactly what I came down here to say! I think mine was $6.99, it's comfy, what more do I need?
