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.
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.
@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
@lisaf noooooooooo and maybe I've been reading too many mystery novels but I'm convinced I would get murdered there ("Murder at the Arctic Post Office")
Why are you having a hard time?
@Beans ah okay I thought you were referring to the Billfold itself (I saw some ads for wallets the other day)
@Halloween Jack yeah sorry Ester that plus the "yes, but" nature of your ETA is kind of offputting
@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
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.
