@NoReally @NoReally I think that both you and the author of the post of missing the intended connotations of "real" here. It seems to me that Kelly's Closet wants us to take the meaning that diaper pail liners were first thought of actual moms rather than a company coming up with the product and marketing it to them. Any connotations about "real America" or "real moms" is probably reading too much into it.
On Jimmy John's Non-Compete Agreement Bans Employees From Working at Restaurants that Serve Sandwiches
@annev17 Non-competes are mostly unenforceable.
@SterlingCooper05 Erm, 5% discount for cash is cray, and I would never pay with a credit card if they gave me a 5% cash discount!
There is a big difference in interest rates for student debt vs credit card debt. Having high amounts, or even any, CC debt is a big problem, and the writer definitely needed someone to motivate her to get that consolidated into a loan with a manageable interest rate. Apparently, threats from her husband-to-be were the only thing strong enough to work, so it was a reasonable move on his part.
@garli I keep a carrot peeler at my desk specifically because I hate baby carrots. As far as washing it goes, meh, I don't really.
Everyone who lives near a quality climbing gym should be grateful, as $60-70/month seems to be the going rate no matter the quality. For a non-air-conditioned racquetball court, I can pay $55/month for business hours access (3-9 pm on weekdays, which is pretty much a non-starter) or $65/month for 5 am to midnight.
@LanuHoos Yes, there is a lot of fuzzy math. The post also fails to take interest into account.
@theballgirl @Emily Kaye Lazzaro So... you are paying $6000 for a not-very-good budgeting class?! Or is it that you will essentially receive a double-exemption next year and this year will be kind of tight month-to-month? If it's the second case, fine, it's probably not worth it. But if you make a small enough amount of money for $500/month to push you to the edge, you have really got to figure this out.
I run the family plan for family. It's a good deal, and I think that the author of the article is foolish for not just paying her portion of the family bill. That said, for the family members who do not have a bank capable of sending automatic bill pay checks to me, or better yet, automatically transferring the money, it is kind of a pain. I find that I can only hassle people quarterly to not be a nag.
@ThatJenn Why do peopple not understand that the customers hold all the leverage? You can pay how you want!
