quite possibly my favorite billfold post ever. also 'i could only break one of these things to you at a time'. OMG YES. constant negotiation in a relationship.

On It Has Been Made Clear to Me That I Cannot Have It All

@Meaghano my company just moved out of a coworking space. IMO at that price, despite lack of niceness, it's worth it. Less time wasted looking for a place to sit, stuff to buy and moving seats to be near the power cord.

On The Difficult Task of Putting a Price on Our Pet’s Health

@womb bat @womb bat ugh pet insurance is bullshit, i wouldn't bother. they only pay for preventative stuff and the premiums are more than just paying out of pocket. unless your dog has cancer, i would just take care of them, have them see the vet once a year and you'll be fine. my 5 year old lab vet costs feel reasonable.

On Living Our Best Thirty-something Lives

I am turning 30 this year also! Goooo 1984. Doesn't having a baby exempt you from Couch to 5k? But seriously, this article is perfect. I was actually just thinking yesterday about getting older is making me not care about having 'permission' to do things like call myself a writer and just do what I want to do. The giving no fucks part really rang true for me.

On "Secrets" to Buying a House Without Getting Hosed

So agree with 'buy less than you can afford'. We want to buy a house we can afford on one income, so in case of layoffs, illness, etc we will be ok. Our friends with payments that require dual incomes are really locked in/trapped to their jobs and standard of living.

On Help a Reader Choose Her Health Care Plan

#1, all the way, for me. Doctors cost a lot and it's not fun to make the choice of your finances or your health. $77 isn't going to break the bank and you'll be able to go to the doctor as much as you want. If you have a health issue later, you're going to regret not having better insurance. I never regret the money I spend on premiums.
