but which one of you is bill
@honey cowl Word!
I think this is great advice! I love my split bank accounts too.
@cuminafterall I also vote dinner - that's what somebody got me once in return for getting them a job. although, I wasn't expecting it! a handwritten note is a nice thought too.
Using a credit card definitely feels to me like I'm spending the money twice. To counter that, the way I use my credit card is that when I spend money with it (usually because a place doesn't take debit), I move that amount of money from my chequing account to savings, so I've already accounted for it in my budget. And like you, my spreadsheet that tracks how much money I have has a debit column, visa column, and then debit - visa column which is what I actually have to work with.
@Michelle I've never lived in Alberta but I'm told the liquor laws are more freesome there as well. But yes, if you're moving to Canada for booze reasons to Quebec you must go! I miss that. The expense is a bummer for sure. @theotheginger the one upside of being unemployed was getting in the line with all the other people before the lcbo opened this morning and ohhhh this just makes my life sound real sad.
@Jinxie Well ... this is just in Ontario. Every province has different liquor rules, I imagine just like it is in the states!
I guess my one thing for today could be buying booze before the LCBO potentially goes on strike tomorrow just in time for the long weekend. One thing: accomplished! I'm so proud *wipes away tear*
I recently upgraded from mcdonald's double doubles to making instant coffee at home. So I'd say I have a year or two to go to make it as a True Coffee Snob, but I'm getting there!
We all need to pull together now to make zeitgeisty really happen.
