One of the biggest secrets no one tells you about daycare: you expect them to get sick from there, but no one tells you they bring that shit home and share with their parents. 😷🤮

I have the 7, but after becoming enlightened to the trap that is the 2 year contracts I fully intend to keep it as long as physically possible. I can’t believe how expensive they’ve become 😬

These seem like necessary and sensible changes that both parties should support. I hope this bill passes.

Ah... discovered that’s the ridiculous name brand mark up. Off brand after-market filter = $8. Craziness.

Wtf. Replacement water filters for my fridge are $50. That seems insanely expensive for a filter.

Yes! I like the way you phrased that. My thoughts exactly.

Absolutely. Periods of disability in general were the first thing that came to my mind. It’s not something anyone plans for, but it could happen to anyone. I think too often, we underestimate the financial value of nurturing healthy relationships.

I misread that you meant PHYSICAL cash. I def wouldn’t carry those thousands in cash! 😂 I’d aim for probably $500-$1000. Enough to cover a couple days worth of food/hotel/travel costs for whole family and assuming worst case scenario that ATMs are down.

While this article has many good points, I may be slightly unpopular by disagreeing with the premise. I think it can be ok depend on other people as long as you have your own employable skills and a back-up plan.

In an ideal world, I’d assume enough to cover all house/renters deductibles, health ins. Deductibles (for whole fam.) plus an emergency fund for potential living expenses if displaced. I haven’t calculated how much that would be though... lots of variables there.

The story also sounds better when the income is higher. Since they can save more money more quickly, the timeframe sounds more impressive and is more attention grabbing.

Have you figured out how to turn off the “in case you missed it” notifications? I find those to be the most annoying...

Usually some combo of herb cream cheese, a lunch meat, carrot and cucumber. I’m usually making them for myself and give the kiddo a couple slices from it :)

I had a pile like that. It hurt every fiber of my being but I ended up just tossing a bunch of it :-/ but it ended up kickstarting everything. I’m focusing more on just getting things out of the house though so it’s easier to just donate than sell usually.

Not really. Just following a rule of clutter free floors and counters and trying to start being ruthless about admitting things I don’t love or won’t use and getting rid of them.

One week into conscientious de-cluttering and simplifying: - house is noticeably cleaner - feeling less stressed and overwhelmed - even hubby noticed a difference 🙌🙌🙌 Here’s to starting week two!
