On Places I've Lived: Detroit Edition

This was too good. "Several times I came home to elaborate booby-traps set up with dress form mannequins, bells, pins and extraneous ribbon. They were art school fabrics majors."

On Friday Estimate

I have wild plans to dress up as a waitress tonight! JK, that is work at the side gig. So I will work today, possibly grab Starbucks (on a card already) and then work the side gig and get fed dinner). Saturday I will sleep in, ride my horse, finish my house cleaning projects and then head back for another night of work. I am thinking I will probably grab Dunkin - $3 and some random Christmas crap at the Dollar store ($3?). Sunday I will sleep in again, ride my horse, take Christmas pictures with my horse, run or maybe hike, then off to hockey. Hoping for a very cheap weekend!

On Let’s Throw Some Money at Our Problems: October 2014 Check-in

IRA savings, with a year end goal of $6,000 September 2014: $3750 October 2014: $3790 :( Truck and Trailer savings with a goal of $6,000: September 2014: $4458 October 2014: $6,000!!! But actually $0 because with my last repair job I will have spent it all. It did the job. I will be very hard pressed to make $1105 for the next 2 months to hit my IRA goal.

On Lunch Spots and Budgets

I am a die hard lunch bringer, but when I was in England for a semester I had a couple places. The two winners were this tiny place called The Roman Food house, which was the size of my bedroom upstairs (had more room underground) and they literally just pulled stuff out of tupperware and made amazing sandwiches, salads and had great ice cream. If that place was packed, and/or I was really in a hurry/broke there were a couple places that sold baguette sandwiches and cornish pasties. For two pounds you could get an enormous bread covered meal.

On Got $400? Stay at the New Harry Potter Themed Hotel Rooms

I saw this earlier and wondered if it would pop up on Buzzfeed! By London standards that price seems pretty reasonable.
