I am not trying to be sanctimonious here, I am actually curious how other people paying one's bills works. Do checks get written directly to landlords from the third party? Does the third party just put an agreed upon sum in your account every month? Is it something that the adult kids propose or do the parents offer it outright? I feel like in retrospect I could have talked my folks into it, but I would have been too mortified to ask.
@Kate Amann@twitter My feet are a wide US size 10 (line forms to left, boys) and I rarely find women's shoes that fit at thrift shops, especially teeny narrow delicate vintage shoes. I have GREAT luck with men's shoes though, especially with all the menswear looks right now. Oxfords, loafers, etc.
@Darkest_of_Dawn Or what's wrong with sending a note in your card that says you made a donation to some charity in honor of all your loved ones this year, love us, happy holidays? I don't expect Stuff from my extended family, that's absurd.
