On Terrible Financial Decisions That I Have Made or Am Considering Making

Kudos to you Nicole for being honest. There is what we need to do and then what we decide to do.... I hope you pursue that 0% credit card and get debt free after one year! That is the greatest gift you can ever give yourself. Also, "needing" to go on a $2,500 cruise is a mindset that could use some shifting. But, do what you gotta do and work your ass off. You'll be delighted in 12 months.

On How a 24-Year-Old Undocumented College Student Does Money

On What Happens to Our Clothes After They Are Donated

This summer I was doing some work with a youth program in the Dominican Republic, and one of the participants, a high school teacher in Brooklyn, noticed one of the kids was wearing gym shorts from his school. A lot of clothes that are sold in the DR come from US donations, which makes sense given their proximity.

On We Should Get Up More

@BornSecular Maybe you could get your doctor to write a note for the exercise ball, saying you need it for your health? Pretty ridiculous that employers would not allow such tiny changes to help their employees be more comfortable and healthy (SHOCKING, right?). With the health improvements that standing apparently provides, installing more standing desks/what have you would save them money in the long run in terms of health insurance payments. Plus, you know, HAPPIER people.

Excellent photo choice. If you are into 'how the best do their things best' articles, you should subscribe to barking up the wrong tree's weekly email. It's full of that, plus even better stuff.
