On New York on $70 a Week

Some of this is also straight up theft (sneaking food from the dorm cafeteria and from the Whole Foods). I'm reminded of the article a few months ago about the difference between frugal and cheap.

On New York on $70 a Week

@TheLifestyleCreep Agreed. Also, for the 2015 week, are we saying it was $70/week for one week only? Because if the week before and after had much bigger budgets, then I'm not sure that counts as "living on $70/week" either. It's a super interesting post though and I appreciate the candidness!

On Life Hacks

@Rouser I always thought fancy food and drinks counted as things (just... things that last 30 minutes until you are finished consuming them).

On Keeping the Junk

Interesting for Billfolders because what if we throw stuff out but need it again later? Or like, most of my kitchenware stuff most certainly does not bring me joy but I need it and can't afford nicer version that may spark more joy. Joy-sparking is for rich people!
