@ThatJenn oh, totally. It's kind of a blue moon thing for me to eat potato chips (the same cannot be said about Goldfish crackers), and I always feel SO. AWFUL. after I do, haha.
@ThatJenn As long as you don't have too many of them, the Cheesy Garlic Bread variation actually isn't too bad. I hate that I know this. I was really hungry last week and bought a bag at the gas station, wolfed them down and totally regretted it. Hence the tip for moderation.
@kbn22 Since you're in Atlanta ... one way to trim at least your grocery list is visiting Your Dekalb Farmer's Market, for sure. Since I've been shopping there more instead of the (admittedly more convenient) Kroger/Publix, I've actually saved quite a bit of money. Buford Highway FM ain't bad, either.
@bgprincipessa Target's been stocking slim/skinny ankle pants that are in a dressier fabric -- I believe they're hemmed so you could lengthen them manually if you want. The ones I bought are really stretchy but are a heavier "knit," so I can wear them to client meetings or whatever and not feel underdressed. I refuse to buy pants that do not stretch. But yeah, the pants don't run more than $35 and have lasted me for over a year now.
@highwaysofgold I read it the same way!
My 1 thing was to transfer my valid out-of-state license to Georgia, where I've lived more or less under the radar for almost 7 years (counting the 4 in college). I spent 7 hours in the DMV today, but I finally got it all done and taken care of and the Department of Driver Services lady even complimented my picture. My next thing is that I'm going to buy a car this weekend, and while I feel confident in the research I've done so far, I am terrified that I'll be a chicken and agree to things (like financing, like anything) that I don't understand. I'm pretty agreeable under pressure. Mostly, I feel like I need a real grownup to take care of these things or at least to go with me and make sure I don't do something wrong. :/
@auxamandes I am the same way with my lunch habits! Mostly because I am too lazy/procrastinate too much at night to make the next day's lunch, and am always rushing in the morning. It's just easier for me to grab super-portable items like fruit/yogurt/crackers. Those Luna Chocolate Peppermint Stick bars have changed my life, they are so insanely delicious. The only problem is trying not to eat them every day.
@faustbanana oh my god, "Meatface"
@EvanDeSimone "If my debit to you does not appear on a computer screen I am definitely going to forget about it." I totally had this thought yesterday when I was looking at my bank account online. It's a little scary to think that if I don't see the charge on online banking, I will totally forget that it happened, because I always forget to take my receipt. My mom still stands by manually writing her charges in her checkbook register; I think it's a pretty good tactic, actually. Seems like writing out & tabulating expenditures would help commit them to memory.
