@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!
It's 2014. Pay with everything by credit card, and split all checks.
@Robert Platt Bell No kidding. Putting a significant amount of money into a CD is idiotic, especially if it's for an irresponsible college kid.
On Milk Money
@diplostreetmix Oops, I the second alternative was supposed to be the market price sinking after the enactment of the price floor.
On Milk Money
"The federal government fixed a minimum price for Grade A liquid milk, milk for drinking. The price dropped." I don't get it. Is it the price set by the government that dropped, or are they saying that after the government set the price floor, the government then lowered the price floor?
