On The Cost of Buying a Washer/Dryer from Sears Outlet When Six (then Seven) Months Pregnant

@vanderlyn Mine works fine! It's an LG, I think. A normal wash cycle takes about an hour and twenty minutes, and about another two hours to get totally dry (I only dry sheets and towels in the machine and hang the rest though).

On Adjusting Your Life to Your Partner's Career

I moved to a different country for my job because it was an offer I just couldn't pass up. My partner broke up with me initially - he couldn't get a job here (it's already a difficult market and he doesn't speak the language) but once I got here, we got back together. It works, so far, although there's 2,5 years to go so we'll see. I really appreciate his support.

On Elizabeth Warren Vs. Walmart

@cjm Also, don't Starbucks employees get benefits, whereas WalMart does everything to avoid that?

On "I Don't Believe in Owing": How James McBride Does Money

@Theestablishment It's reassuring to know that these fancy brand names aren't substantially better than my cheap clothing. Whenever I break a pair of $10 sunglasses I wonder, should I shell out for something better? Apparently not. Also, drink your wine! Invite some friends over and open a few special bottles! LIVE IN THE NOW!

On What Marriage (And Remarriage) Has To Do With Money

@TheDoctorsCompanion Well, if only you'd learn to be less manipulative! I know, that's hard, as us women are naturally inclined to be just that.

On The Second Time I Lost My Life Savings

I feel like we've all had that One Roommate who tried (and succeeded) to coast by on the others' dime. They must be the same person who don't factor in tax and tip when putting down cash for a group meal.

On How Many Safety Nets Do You Have?

@halloliebchen Woo! Go Germany/Europe! You inspired me to look up Belgium's system and it's pretty okay as well. Fingers crossed that we never have to use it, but good to know it's there! I moved to France last summer but since I'm only going to be here a few years I'm still allowed to pay into Belgium's system. So I didn't have to start all over! Bless you, E.U. worker's mobility
