On Friday Estimate

I will probably spend about € 30 at a garden center this weekend (want to plant some succulents), € 50-€100 on a new purse if I can find one I like. And probably about € 100 combined on groceries and going out to eat. I got an unanticipated bonus today and I'm so happy! I'm going to put it in savings, it'll make my savings goal for this year so much easier.

On New York on $70 a Week

This was a fun read. I'm always surprised how quick 'non-essential' expenses add up in a big city - yeah, $ 70/week seems like a lot if you've got housing and most food covered, but then a couple unexpected things (expensive book, medicine, etc) can throw the whole thing off the rails.

On New York on $70 a Week

@keaton I'm in Europe and I had never heard of this before going to the U.S., but yeah, lots of people mail their rent cheques.

@lisaf I guess, but being familiar with Sodexo, I can't bring myself to care much

@Beans ah okay I thought you were referring to the Billfold itself (I saw some ads for wallets the other day)

On On the Daily Show's Jessica Williams, the Latest High-Profile Victim of Impostor Syndrome

@Halloween Jack yeah sorry Ester that plus the "yes, but" nature of your ETA is kind of offputting

On How Chelsea Fagan, Founder of The Financial Diet, Does Money

@Beans do you mean the ads displayed on the page (for a second I was scanning the article for links)? I agree but depending on the ad network, the site editors probably have no control over what ads are displayed

On National Adjunct Walkout Day Is Coming

Isn't part of the problem that you absolutely CAN get fired for wearing that shirt? You can get fired for absolutely any reason or no reason in most states, except things related to protected classes.
