On Four (And One) Items I Regretted Wearing to My First Job

@Madeline Shoes YOU GUYS. Liketwice.com and/or threadup.com are great places for very gently used clothing at low prices. There are tons of blazers and stuff, and you can search by brands and size.

On When Things Fall Apart: The Cost of Divorce

I'll also add that you can do a post-nuptual agreement, too. This means, after you get married you can enter into an agreement about who's assets belong to whom. Of course, consult a lawyer to do so as this will vary state by state.

On Not All of Us Are Wasteful

@Madge I completely agree. No one is saying "never go to a restaurant" but rather, going to a restaurant and paying the associated inflated prices has a cost beyond just the price of the meal. The $30 could have gone elsewhere, including on saving for a future away from being a wage slave. Ditto with other choices, such as living by yourself (rather than with roommates to split the cost with) or commuting a long way or living in high-cost area. This is the message I get from Mr. MM.

On Not All of Us Are Wasteful

@ellabella Yeah but if you can't afford it, then you probably shouldn't be spending money on it.

On Gifts to President Obama

So, is there just a giant room somewhere in the National Archives filled with gifts, just mouldering away? The only thing that appears to have been personally retained is a book from Mongolia.

On Zillions: The '90s Kids Magazine About Money

I remember this magazine! I don't recall that I had a subscription, but my parents must have gotten a few somewhere and gave them to me. LOVED IT. I was one of those kids who was always scheming ways to make money and dreaming up kid-businesses so this was right up my alley.

@JanieS Or it could be that they haven't decided yet?

On Be a Pest, Is My Advice (But Like, a Tiny Pest)

@hungrybee Yes, you write a card to the company's address and put "Attn: Interviewer's Name" on the envelope. I have always done this after I've had an interview. Is this no longer the norm?
