My best tool for paying my student loans was an excel (or Google Doc equivalent of excel) spreadsheet that had my balance, calculated interest, and expected payment for each month. Whenever I had extra money- even something small like $20- I'd stick it toward a loan payment. It was motivating to see how even small over payment added up over time because the entire balance would change for the remaining years. Highly recommend!
That was depressing.
There's a similar visa you can get to the USA. It's called an investor visa and the alien needs to invest between $500,000 and $1 million (depending on the location) in a new business venture. Once you have this visa and keep your immigration status AOK, you can apply for a green card and eventually US citizenship in a few years.
From my understanding, Ecologica Malibu was not simply "outsourcing some of her work." She was reselling furniture that was produced on a massive scale, the likes of which could easily be found on other sites such as overstock.com. Not handmade and I doubt she even had any hand in designing the furniture itself. But, my problem with Etsy is that it pretends to be a marketplace for handmade goods when, in fact, just about anyone can put up a storefront.
This weekend I'll spend- $30 on groceries. I hope that I can spend less but let's be generous here. $1200 on roof repairs for our home.
This whole thing- the article, the Etsy shop, everything- is perfect.
So I know that I'm an asshole, but I don't understand what's so contemptible about someone trying to recover money owed to them? Maybe there are better/more generous ways of going about it, but I'd hardly call it disgusting behavior.
Perhaps this was just a joke, but look into opening a cat cafe!
This week I finally got around to getting an estimate for a roof repair. Jesus Christ on a pogo stick this month has been a nightmare for home repair.
