Now With A Gun To My Head (New Year’s Resolutions 2015, Revised List)

Oh, I had so many plans for myself in 2015. But I just now discovered that my co-director/producing partner of my beekeeping documentary is pregnant.

Minimalist Purse Shopping For Stupid People A.K.A. How I Became An Accidental Coach Bag Collector

How Much Is Enough And How Do You Know?

How Much Is Enough And How Do You Know?

Last week I had a thrilling realization while dusting my bookcase: I have enough free entertainment to last me until the end of the year. In fact, between the subscriptions to audible and HBO go I got as wedding gifts, PBS.com, and my stack of actual books I’ve collected for pleasure reading since January, I […]

How To Get $1000 In Designer Shoes For Free. Well, Okay. $1.23 With Tax.

I was dropping off clothes today at my favorite consignment store when I noticed a rack of designer shoes that had been discounted to $2 per pair. I had $14 in trade credit, so I could potentially “buy” seven pairs of shoes for $1.23 in sales tax. All of the $2.00 shoes are either brand […]
