@sea ermine I do like sometimes planning what my one thing will be.
A lot of times I avoid the 1 thing post, not because I'm so on top of things, but because the things on my list are things I won't even pretend will get done. But today I need to go to Walgreens to pick up a perscription. And also get cash out to give to a friend I owe.
@meatballsub I think it means AeroPress, as in coffee made from the machine is less bitter so dark roasts are more palatable.
@themegnapkin My parents hit warehouse sales in Napa a couple times a year and buy cases upon cases for great prices, and it definitely does get consumed! To the point where my mom will be emailing my uncle asking for word on when the next one is scheduled. But sometimes this leads to us having to bust out a flashlight to figure out which wine we're pulling from the case since it's in the darkest corner of the room. It's basically the wine equivalent of a meat freezer.
Honestly my parents' house could kind of use a wine hutch, instead of the cases of wine in the corner of the spare room. Also...is that extra money in the bank account there in part because she's been saving thinking of the wine hutch? I think I fall in the "talk about your goals and compromise" camp.
I've always had good luck with cabs, and in Chicago they're required to take plastic, and the one time they tried to fight me on that I was like "Well, you can take my credit card or you can accept $4 for this $40 ride."
@jquick I'm an adult who's still on her parent's phone bill and am spoiled crazily when I'm home to visit but that is CRAZY to me. By the time she's 36 I feel like you know whether or not your kid will want to spend time with you.
@MissMushkila The Aveda Institute in Chicago is also pretty great. And so cheap. I love it.
Spent more than I planned on Friday, mostly because I forgot I wanted a shirt at the show and by the time we were done talking with everyone the bus had stopped running, so we had to take a cab to the train. I ended up spending all $40 in cash I took out. But Saturday I slept late and never worked up the energy to go back out to watch the hockey game/go see the band again, so I saved money there - other than the $26 on takeout. Sunday, made brownies, did laundry, was super bored by the Oscars. $0.
