On Monday Check-In

Hello all! I had a quiet and wonderfully restorative weekend. Here's the breakdown: Friday: Used a free trial visit at a nearby gym, $0, then went to Fairway to get a refund for some yogurts that had busted open in my grocery bags on the way home the week before (+$4). Saturday: Bagel and coffee ($7), laundry (loaded $20 onto my card), and picked up some grapes on the walk back ($5). Watched a lot of Netflix =) Sunday: Joined said gym ($21) and ordered sushi as a weekend treat ($11). Cooked up a storm for the week ahead, planned Thanksgiving packing, and cleaned. All told, an even $60 for the weekend.

On Here Is Your Open Thread

I did my one thing, y'all! I signed up for the TSA pre-check months ago, but never dragged my sad self to midtown west to show my passport and get fingerprinted. Accomplished that last night. It was shockingly quick, pleasant and efficient!

On Friday Estimate

I had a very expensive Thursday, so it will be a low-budget weekend. Tonight: Dropping my suit jacket off at the dry cleaner ($6). Saturday: Customary bagel and coffee ($7) followed by a trip to a holiday market to browse for gifts. Not intending to buy anything, just looking for ideas! Dinner with friends in the evening ($20). Sunday: Home all day is the plan--Netflix, cleaning, cooking, resting before a family-filled Thanksgiving week. May do a small grocery shop ($15). Total Estimate: $48

On The Second Time I Lost My Life Savings

@annev17 @garli Oh yes, or the one whose parents cut her off and asked me if I could cut her rent in half (absorbing the rest myself) because "it's super hard to support myself?" (WHICH I HAD BEEN DOING FOR 3+ YEARS AT THAT POINT I MEAN REALLY)

On The Uniform I've Chosen for Myself

@blackframe I can't speak for their clothing (as a plus-size woman I just assume they don't have my size or style), but their bags are immaculately constructed. I get compliments every day on my tote, and whenever I travel on my weekend bag.

Nazanin is my favorite part of this podcast. No offense to Alex, but like, she is awesome.

On Millennials Having a Hard Time Saving Money

@may june july Ah, good point. Still, yes, yay for modest sized houses! My childhood home was like, 1700 square feet for 7 of us? So to me a 500sqf bungalow would be roomy!
