On Job of the Day: Barista For The CIA Starbucks

@HelloTheFuture I would 100% assume that I was on some show like Punked and feel sorry for myself.

On Job of the Day: Barista For The CIA Starbucks

@andnowlights They have to get paid more. Getting even the lowest clearance is a huge pain in the ass and you wouldn't bother if it didn't mean more money or more career opportunities for you.

On Online Shopping Is the Devil, and I Won’t Do it

But the savings! So many things for so much cheaper. Here's something fun to help with impulse control. http://camelcamelcamel.com/ It tracks the price of anything in your amazon wishlist and gives you historical price data of that item. For me it's easier to wait to buy something when you feel like you're "winning" by getting a good deal.

On Monday Check-in

@BillfoldMonkey I feel you on that one. I tend to excuse eating extra when it's some how cheaper in my mind.

On Cooking: Secretly The Worst?

@guenna77 Have you considered buying a Cuisinart? I've had mine for years and it cuts chopping time down to small amounts of minutes, even for complicated dishes. Or a mandolin? It's an extra thing to wash but that's much faster.

@guenna77 I'm with you. But had they never discussed debt before?

On Cooking: Secretly The Worst?

@nell 100% agree. I started cooking because I'm picky and I like to be the boss of how my food tastes. Also I was broke and living on a grad student budget and couldn't afford to eat out all the time. Now it's fun and I know what I'm doing.

On Cooking: Secretly The Worst?

It's the best! The best I tell you! The secret to making your pie mess worth it is to never only make one pie. The mess remains the same, but there's more pie.

On An Interview With a Friend Who Got Bedbugs The First (And Last) Time She Used VRBO

@TheDoctorsCompanion I fully agree that it's complete BS and the landlord and VRBO should pay but some times recouping your money could cost you a lot of money and time. I guess I was assuming that since the author is from NYC that her friend lives there (even though it clearly says that her friend no longer lives there, so fail for reading comprehension on my part). So round trip tickets to LA plus a rental car, plus LA traffic, plus driving to Big Bear plus time off work ect, ect. It's just a lot of time and money.
