I buy presents for my friend's kids. On their birthdays, I'll give a small cheque ($25-$50) meant for their college fund. At Christmas, I'll buy all the little kiddies a book. This doesn't have to be expensive - this year I bought each kid a Mr. Men book and those things are only $3.99. They loved it; Mr. Sneeze was a particular favourite!
What is One Direction truthing? (Do I want to know??)
@vanderlyn I have one and love it! The whole cycle takes longer (anywhere from 2-4 hours depending on the weight of the load) but you never again have to transfer clothes from a washer to a dryer. I know it doesn't seem like it's a big hassle, but it's AWESOME to put a bunch of clothes in a machine, press a button, and show up a while later and have everything done. Our machine has a steam feature as well.
Grilled cheese sandwiches!! Also, those awful Kraft singles. Whenever I'm at my parents' house, I eat them by themselves while standing in front of the fridge like I'm a 6 year old during a Full House commercial break.
@bgprincipessa Car2Go solves the ZipCar problem entirely! You can pick up a Car2Go wherever you see one and then you are charged by the minute for as long as you use it.
Agree with all of this - part of the reason why I left academia!
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
Our plunger was under $10, but we had to spend approximately $20 more because my husband was too mortified to go to the cashier with a single plunger. "She's going to think I'm sick!"
“well, it’s mine, isn’t it?” is just the best!
@EM You pay a premium in Ontario as well, except that it's not monthly. It comes off on your income taxes once a year instead.
