On Keep It Short and Sweet When Quitting

This is timely! I'm planning on quitting when I get back from the holidays (sorry Employer, I want to get paid for that week). Question: do you need to write a letter if you tell them in person? Also how spineless is it to email it?

On What Did You Spend on Your Last Wedding Gift?

My personal take is that wedding gifts are like the bottle of wine you should always bring when someone invites you to dinner. It's acknowledging that they're hosting you, and a small favor in return. The Wedding Years are starting for me and I just attended a good friend's a few weekends ago. I went on eBay and bought a vintage ("vintage") dutch oven for $30 which I thought was super smart of me, though the lid was kind of banged up when it arrived so I hemmed and hawed and ended up giving them my lid instead since I have the same one and I love it. So I've got a crappier one now, but it's a nice reminder of our friendship! I'm hoping eBay isn't tacky. Riiiiiiiiight?

On How Much Do You Spend on Cable/Internet Each Month?

$30 a month for internet for the first year. Goes up to $50 after that. I had a moment where I freaked out about how much money I was spending, but the only fixed payment I could get rid of was Netflix...so I hope I'm putting that extra $8 a month I have to use wisely. And no less than three people have offered me their HBO Go login and Hulu does have a lot, so I don't think I'll be getting TV any time soon.

On How Much Do You Spend on Electricity Each Month?

I'm a single person in a 360 sq foot studio and I pay $44 a month. I opted for ConEd's installment program because it makes budgeting much easier throughout the year...but now I'm thinking I might be overpaying??

On You Think You Own Whatever Land You Land On

I actually noticed recently that pretty much every item in my medicine cabinet is blue and white. I guess "trust" is something you want in your personal care products?

The cost of a Metrocard: $112. I'm way too cheap for cabs.

I spend about $50 a week for one adult. It's high, but I rarely eat out.
