And how will you be spending the long weekend?
It’s time to check in on our debt payments and savings goals again.
On Aug. 11, Mary Ellen Burris, a senior vice president of consumer affairs for Wegmens, a family-owned grocery chain in upstate New York wrote a blog post titled “Sky High Beef” to explain to customers why beef prices have risen lately.
“Are your parents upset by your liberal-arts degree? Show them this chart.” Says the Chronicle of Higher Education.
Good morning! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends!
Good morning and TGIF! Time for some estimates.
I won’t be doing a weekend estimate today because I’ll be off next week. I had originally planned to take the $500 I put in a vacation savings account, rent a house upstate and go off the grid, but have decided to stay in the city, see friends, go to baseball games, sit outside in the middle of the day reading books, try some new restaurants, and try not to think about work for a week. We’ll see! I’ve always been bad about taking vacations. I’ll tally up my spending a week from now. Meaghan, Ester, and Nicole will be in charge.
But what about you? Any big plans this weekend?
Am I wrong to be incredibly irate about this? It’s hard to know what others in my position earn as the job is in a very niche industry and its tough to get an accurate range. I’ve already started looking for a new job, but not sure how to square all this so I can still get my job done and not just throw my hands up and completely check out mentally.
Hi. Nice to meet you. I live next door.
You’d think that online shopping would have eliminated our need for catalogs, but according to the New Yorker, Americans receive nearly 12 billion catalogs a year—the worst of which is from Restoration Hardware, which has the door-stopping weight of 17 pounds and the ire of UPS delivery people. Most of the catalogs end up in the recycling bin, and are considered a waste of energy and resources.
