On Do You Have a Minute for the Children?

I interviewed at a charity for a job many years ago and realized as I sat down with a huge batch of people that it was this type of canvassing job for the summer. At first I was okay with the idea until they got into listing minimum amounts I needed to make and that they may drive us out to the suburbs and have us go door to door every day. I walked out and declined the job. I just couldn't do something like that on a daily basis.

On The $48 'World War Z' Mega-ticket

@RachelG8489 I have been seeing more movies in IMAX just because I love the reserved seating at the 68th Street AMC.

On How Much Do You Spend on Electricity Each Month?

A three bedroom apartment with three adults living in it garnered a $71.26 (only electricity) bill in June. That is about average ignoring the high bills of late summer because of the air conditioner.

On How Much is Your Phone Bill Each Month?

@OllyOlly I'm in the same club - I have a grandfathered unlimited data plan, so I am unwilling to leave at the moment. I am on a family plan, but I pay the whole bill since the only other person on it is my nephew. So my bill is $170.00 a month. The annoying thing is I put him on my plan too late to get the same deal I have, so he has the 3gb / month limit that he generally doesn't exceed. He has an iPhone 4 and I am still using my iPhone 3GS which I refuse to upgrade until I break it. Do I get to wear the dunce cap now?

On Let's Throw Some Money at Our Problems: May 2013 Check-In

Another bad month on the savings front :( Here we go Debt – Barclays Mastercard April 710.42 May 676.04 (positive - they increased my credit limit so that will be nice for my credit score, and I wasn't tempted to use it! I wish they had lowered my APR instead, but that would mean less money for them) Savings – My Reverse “52 Week Money Challenge” April: 369.00 May: 64.00 (blurgh I am still happy I used this instead of CC debt, but I am determined to do better next month)

On How Much Do You Spend on Transportation Each Month?

I take public transportation 99.9% of the time with a very rare cab ride thrown in there for late nights so that is negligible. I use an unlimited monthly metrocard that normally costs $112 dollars but its purchased as a pre-tax salary deduction, so it actually costs me less.

@julnyes and yes that means I had chips, cheese and crackers for dinner! I've had to cook too much the past few weeks (house guest) so I had a very lazy week of non homemade lunches and leftovers or snacks for dinner.
