Re: I did it!

Some employers take their own rules more seriously.

IT's the building, not the employer, actually.

LOL! Good luck with that.

My office doesn't allow space heaters but somehow we all have one.

Re: I did it!

drink less coffee

Awww. So sad.

I make my coffee at work but I only drink it in the morning (I make about 6 cups, which is actually 3 cups, but I don't always drink all of it).

Re: Whole Foods Overcharging in NYC

So while it's a requirement in Massachusetts, that doesn't mean all the other states have the same law.

I have no idea what the law is in Arkansas...I always thought it was for customer convenience or alternately one of those 'we've [more]

Re: help with buying a new mattress

Good Luck! I have not looked in years (probably too many years, if you believe the commercials).

When I did, someone said 'hey, serta is on sale for 299 or 399 at mattress discounters' and then I went to the store and they made me lay down [more]

Re: Whole Foods Overcharging in NYC

One article I saw, can't find it now. said Whole Foods said that some prepackage items were priced per item not weight. It mentioned the vege platters.

Yeah, I think it would be difficult to make them all the same size and they may [more]

Re: Whole Foods Overcharging in NYC

Otherwise, leave me be so I can pay attention to the register.

Some of the stores I've been to, the little thing that tells the customer the prices is never working. It's annoying, because you get overcharged constantly. I don't think [more]

Re: Whole Foods Overcharging in NYC

I'm sure Whole Foods isn't the only one.

If this is the same article from the other day, 77% of the other stores had the same issues.

Re: 39-cent lunch, carby but nutritious

But 2 issues - most people don't want to eat essentially the same thing for lunch 5-7 days a week.

I actually cook like this for myself, eat on one or two things during the week for lunches and dinners, but I occasionally go out or [more]

Re: Does Anyone Here Remember?

Frequently, dye is added to intensify the color. The true color depends on the cows diet.

As far as store bought stuff, the grass fed butter seems to be a darker color than the other butter...

I remember when I my [more]

Re: Homemade crackers

To bake successfully, you must follow the recipe.

True, but if crackers don't rise (and I've never made them) then it shouldn't be too big of a problem.

This sounds good. I have a rosemary plant in my kitchen and I'm thinking [more]

Re: Combining budgets

For myself, I'm on the every two weeks schedule too, so I budget by combining two paychecks and budgeting off that amount for each month. I ignore the extra two paychecks except [more]

Re: Whole Foods “good,” “bette

Lots of "organic" things can kill you, including many which are "all natural

My mom is always telling me something is 'natural' to say it is healthy. Drives me crazy.

'So is hemlock!', is my response.

Re: Whole Foods “good,” “better

Did you ask them if you could make a principle only payment?

I was wondering about that too.

Sometimes they make you do something different to pay on principal, iirc. You might need to make sure you haven't' just prepaid a [more]

Re: 11 Items That Are Discounted Over the Summer

If you wait until August there will likely be no selection.

That's what I was thinking.

Re: 11 Items That Are Discounted Over the Summer

I'm trying to decide when to buy outdoor furniture. Where is the happy medium when the prices have dropped, but the furniture is still in the stores?

I went ahead and got a hammock because if you don't get them in the spring they tend to be [more]

Re: Eggses

I'm afraid we will have to disagree on this one. :)

Well, I'll never be a vegan, so I'm sure you're right!

I don't actually eat a ton of eggs, so the costs don't hit me that hard. Cheese otoh...

Do you remember the Mad Cow alarm a few years back, when it turned out that slaughterhouses were grinding up parts of dead cows and turning it into cattle feed, with the result that the cows were cannibals? They were also using dead cows (and [more]

Re: Eggses

Eggs are healthy. Pastured eggs have a better nutrient profile (and yummy darker yolks) so I prefer those.
