This is small in the grand scheme of your article but I think you can save some cash on your phone bills. My wife and I switched to Ting and the bill for our two iphone 5's is 35-45 per month total for both of us. And I think you can go even lower on repbulic wireless if you don't mind having a non-iphone. We don't even notice the difference of not being with a major carrier.
wow - deep cuts
This is my platonic ideal of a billfold article
I picked my primary care physician because his name was Dr. Mark John Ryan. If you have three first names I'm going to pick you - no exceptions. He wears a bowtie and is amazing.
@dromeda This TED talk from a few years ago illustrates your point http://www.ted.com/talks/hans_rosling_shows_the_best_stats_you_ve_ever_seen?language=en As countries become richer and healthier they trend toward longer lives and lower birthrates. If it was a low, steady birthrate it wouldn't matter so much. I think what causes the problems is the rises and dips that causes large bubbles of people that get old and all need services at the same time (i.e. baby boom, now). I'm not too smart on this stuff, and this is just an armchair analysis, but it makes sense.
@annev17 agreed. I go to the cheapest place in town and it's 240 per week per child. So with two kids, that's just under 2k per month, WAY more than my mortgage
Everyone move to Warren, RI! 15 minutes from Providence, on the water, and like a shabbier Stars Hollow where everyone in the coffee shop knows your name
@aetataureate Little known fact: if you put an eyedropper of water on your folded laundry it will expand to fill your entire bedroom
