I love Aubrey and Maintenence Phase. Once you realize how deeply anti fat or society is, you see it *everywhere*. movies, TV, books, magazines, etc.

Loved this episode so much when it first aired that I bought Oliver Burkeman's book, Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals. It's an excellent read and I highly recommend it.

Like sorry but uninviting a sibling/family from the wedding because they bring a child and a plus one is just rude.

So you should rename this podcast, "Life help or immature Valley girls"

Finally... something worthwhile for people's material lives out of NPR instead of the sameold platitudes for the everyday consumerism of the American brunch-class.

Start by cooking your own food, make a grocery list, don't go shopping when you're hungry to prevent impulse buying, track your expenses. Here are more ideas on the subject:

Loved this episode, will definitely be putting a fair chunk of it to use (in a "I have basically no money to spend on it" way 😅) #TIL @nprlifekit The fact that I've already decided to learn to do my own #tailoring since I was recently gifted a sewing machine will hopefully help ^_^

Really great episode, I've certainly noticed that after hours of binging YouTube I often feel "bleh" but now I have a much better understanding of why. @nprlifekit

Daylight savings time vs standard time messes up my sleep, wake times. Plus my father worked shift work, so as a child my schedule changed weekly. As a natural night owl, my sleep, wake schedule is completely screwed up.

I work in a company that has a 9/80 schedule. what that means that in a 2 week period, first week we work Mon-Thur 9 hrs each day, Friday 8 hrs (Total 44hrs. No OT pay.) Then second week, Mon-Thur 9 hrs each day and then have Friday off (36 hrs for that week). A total of 80hrs worked in the 2 week paid period. I feel like adding that extra hour at the end of each day to benefit the fact of having a Friday off every other week without losing work time is totally worth it. That extra "Day Off" does make a difference in my work life I would say, I can choose to dedicate my day off of work on my start up business or simply relax and spend more time with my kids. I would encourage employers to give it a try with their company. As soon as my business take hold I'm most definitely going to apply that.

Nice list of SciFi and Fantasy books that I haven't read yet but sound good! 😀

I prefer Dave Ramsey's way instead. family should only have a joint account, a lifelong commitment and openness. I can even imagine marrying a guy, who says "your" or "my" money!
