Favorite Posts, Mentions, and Top Comments Week of 15September2013

Our week has been consumed with our moving activities.  We started our new lease on Tuesday and are ending our old one today.  A bunch of our friends helped us move our furniture and boxed-up items on Tuesday evening and every night since we’ve been bringing over a few more loose items.  We left the kitchen for nearly last, so that has totally screwed up our eating for the week!  I’m basically back on the SAD, which is interesting.  I haven’t eaten this way since late 2010 and it’s not a tasty as I remembered but also isn’t making me sick or anything.  Anyway I’ll post a few more (disappointing) details about our move this upcoming week and I’ll do a full money breakdown once all the bills come in.

Done by Forty made a great suggestion for not letting our closet get overrun again on Aspiring to Make Money from Our Closet Has Wasted Emotional Energy: “A trick we use to keep our clothing under control is to have set number of hangers. When more clothing comes into our lives, we have to get rid of something existing.”
