@CJ Cregg Such a great series.
@PeggyDear accessories and housewares! The swap my friends and I do has tons of this stuff. An entire table of jewelry. Tons of scarves and purses. The housewares are tough if you're traveling, but we rotate hosting duties so the host always has housewares up for grabs.
Friday spent $2 on the blu-ray version of Mockingjay #1 at Redbox. Another surprise of having a boyfriend? You get the blu-ray version of movies. $26 for groceries for Friday and Saturday. Stayed in and cooked and drank some pre-purchased wine. Saturday $6 on Pictionary and a set of five puzzles at an estate sale. $10 on lattes. $6 for the difference in my exchanging shoes for a nightgown/robe at TJ Maxx. $26 on two tickets to The Hunting Ground. It was predictably very difficult to watch, but it was incredible. Kirby Dick was there to answer Qs after the film and I'm now an even bigger fan. Sunday spent $11 on coffee and bagels. Total: $103
@PicNic I read that as "period's coming, but already paid for" and my mind went a little wild thinking of PMS things you'd pre-pay for.
@Allison you reached the tipping point! more savings than student loans!
@greatestbritain check out a credit union! The one I used to work for had great refi rates and the process was fairly painless.
@Renleigh Realtors are big networkers too. If you have a CPA, hairdresser, financial advisor, or other professional you trust they will probably know a good realtor.
@CJ Cregg I always approach these scenarios as "why not at least apply?" You don't have to accept the offer if you don't gel during the interview process.
Hopping back in the game! I am treating to a restaurant week dinner tonight: $150? Tomorrow coffee and reading and maybe an arcade or maybe an afternoon beer with lunch. Sunday about $20 for extra ingredients for Super Bowl dips and booze. Total: $200?
@annecara I'm doing a restaurant week dinner tonight too! At The Bedford. And next week a lunch at Terzo Piano. Every year I tell myself that I'm going to use the Restaurant Week list as a guide for where to eat the other 50 weeks out of the year, but I never do.
