I took $100 out of the bank and then did a great job spending only that because I lost my debit card. Fantastic for controlling one's spending, that.
About 25%, I share a 1 bedroom with my BF in Brooklyn and we do a 40/60 rent split based on our respective incomes.
@RocketSurgeon I've started buying just-in-case avocados each time I grocery shop for this very reason. I think that's how you know when you've made it.
I went to the Woodbury Common Outlets this weekend as a friend had a car and it was nice out. So...too much. Still, got some useful summer work clothes: $100 (+ $8 metro north ticket) Various food and drinks with friends throughout the weekend $60 in cash + $14.11 + $7.40 on my debit card. Total: $188. I estimated about $140 so I only went one-pair-of-shoes over. Sadly I didn't make it to the grocery store though so that will be some extra bucks tonight.
I keep doing these and then being too busy on Monday to check back in, thus proving it worthless I guess. Anyhow, today my dog is having his teeth cleaned which is going to be $$$, which means I really should resolve to spend very little money this weekend. Tonight: picking him up from the vet, depending on how he is feeling I might just stay home with him tonight or I might go see a movie (free with former Livingsocial purchase!) Tomorrow: a friends birthday drinks ...$20? Sunday: Going to costco and buying tp and tampons to last me until the end of time. Maybe $100? but will split some of the costs with the BF if they are for our apartment. Maybe lunch with my costco going friends before or after costco also: $20? I guess I could just eat free samples for lunch.
@blair I would define a cocktail dress as a dress featuring one or more of the following: - a fancy fabric (sequins, tulle, satin) - a sexy cut (short, super tight or cleavage-y or cut-outs or backless for example) But, if you were having a work party at the end of the day I think something in a fancier fabric with like a cardigan or blazer over it is probably fine, assuming your workplace isn't super duper formal or you're not meeting with wicked formal clients. I've worn some short dresses to work before, but as I age I find myself getting more conservative on that front.
@MissMoneySterling But having a new bike will be wonderful and you can go ride it around and enjoy that feeling for free! I biked to work today (also in NYC) and it was super lovely. I wish I could commit to this being my primary mode of transit.
It's spring time, which means every time it is nice outside I want to like go to a bar and day drink or go get ice cream or just go do stuff go go go This weekend will be: Tonight, dinner with the BF, $15-20. Tomorrow some fun times spending plus definitely drinks at night, um, $80? Sunday, afternoon cinco de mayo tequila tasting, $15. Taco ingredients from the grocery store? $40. Let's call it $165 or so for the whole deal.
This is especially strange because most people that work for Rapid are just young folks (and I think mostly independent contractors) getting their real estate license that shortly thereafter get the hell out. I'm curious if the tattooed ones are lifers/franchise owners or something.
@siege91 I mean sure, yeah, but then also that Tumblr has over a hundred posts already and it has only been around since April 20th? Isn't that saying something when it is so wide spread? Is it so difficult to say "he or she" and "his or her" or hey, skip the whole thing and write it in second person "you will..." "you are" and/or "the ideal candidate will..." Given the well-covered and generally acknowledged huge gender disparity in the tech world already, it's worth pointing out that this is the norm as this Tumblr is doing.
