On The Cost of Making My Own Sub Sandwich

Let's talk about the 15 minutes for clean up! Am I dirty? Do I not clean enough? My challenge to myself is to wash all my dinner dishes in the time it takes for my mug of tea to heat in the microwave (2:11) and while I don't always succeed, I sometimes do!

Sort of off-topic, but do many 'folders use Goodreads? I'd love to follow what you are reading, Ester (and everybody else!)

On We're Not Gonna Pay Rent ... By Check

When I had a year-long lease, I just gave my landlord (who lives in a different city) 12 post-dated cheques. Now I'm month to month and I send her etransfers from my bank account, but it costs $1.50 per transaction which annoys me. A cheque is about 30 cents, but mailing it to her is another 60 cents and the hassle of it all is much more than 60 more cents, so, I continue to e-transfers. But how does Interac have a monopoly on e-transferring direct from bank accounts? Is that just in Canada? I want Interact to have a competitor to force them to charge less than $1.50 per transaction. That's highway robbery!!!

On Let’s Throw Some Money at Our Problems: May 2014 Check-in

Savings as of April: $2,100 Savings as of May: $0! I was saving for a big bike trip, and I leave in a few weeks, so I've moved it all out of savings (spent some on a new bike) and have the rest ready for expenses as they come during the trip (food, lodging, $100 to bring a bike on an airplane, etc.)

On Do 1 Thing

I'm going to buy more tiny lightbulbs for the vanity in my bathroom. 2/3 are burnt out now (the first burnt out a few months ago and I still haven't got around to replacing it)
