I deal with that with an in-law that’s way more frugal and it drives my wife to be. I can tell she’s trying to match their level because she’s cutting corners everywhere including small pleasures we can more than easily afford to have. It’s great in that it helped us make some big moves to keep extra money in the bank… » 5/01/15 5:25am Friday 5:25am

I believe the reasoning for the weight gain wasn’t due to the body processing the diet soda but drinking it made their bodies expect calories it didn’t receive leading it to crave food. Controlling appetite is crutial when losing weight so if this does occur it should probably be avoided.

Weird, I’m guessing it’s primarily a hardware thing because with my higher end computer I always have more issues with Firefox for multiple tabs. I don’t know the ins-and-outs of how they run but it seems like Firefox runs everything as a single process so when one tab stalls, they all stall and I find it insanely… » 4/29/15 5:44am 4/29/15 5:44am

In Turf, at the Scarab crash site, if you had enough time alone you could carefully jump along the front of the Scarab until you got on top of a tower you were not meant to reach. There was a texture for an antenna on top of it and if you stood behind it, you could see out and shoot down at people but if they even… » 4/23/15 2:39pm 4/23/15 2:39pm

I use the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and find it works great. The only time I zoom in is when I want to see a particular window up closer to appreciate the artwork. Just reading the story full pages look great while keeping the tablet light and portable. I do have good eye sight however so for whoever doesn't, they may want the… » 4/20/15 1:51pm 4/20/15 1:51pm

Multi-Level Marketing. They’re “businesses” where they try, generally, to sell you something and not only that but get you to join and sell it too. People you recruit earn you money on their sales on top of your own so the more people you get to join, the more money you make. They have deservedly earned a bad rap… » 4/20/15 6:00am 4/20/15 6:00am

That’s how I am with video games for the most part. There are still some that I love to play but I only like very specific types/titles so anything else I play is more time wasting than fully enjoyable. It also bothers me that since video games are so engaging that my free time flies by so quickly while playing… » 4/14/15 3:43pm 4/14/15 3:43pm

If you have a bunch of numbers you want to block due to spam, and don’t want to add them to your contacts, you should probably use an app like TrueCaller or Mr. Number. I don’t have much experience with the latter but I hear good things. » 4/03/15 5:42am 4/03/15 5:42am

I’d say give a deadline to whomever has stuff in the garage to do something with their stuff such as throw it away, store it elsewhere, or work with you to figure out a place for it in the garage. Anything else after that deadline is at your sole discretion as what to do with it. » 4/02/15 5:25am 4/02/15 5:25am

If it's the type of stuff where writing about it won't suffice as a substitute, I suggest taking LH's previous tip of taking pictures and keeping those instead. They take up much less room and considerably left if you're content with a digital folder of memories. » 3/24/15 5:52am 3/24/15 5:52am

Speaking of which I finally decided to spend less on my phone. It was difficult since I'm a techie. I gave up my G3 on Verizon w/unlimited data for a Moto X 1st Gen on Republic Wireless. My wife gave up her AT&T G3 and our overall bill across the two went from $125 to $40. While I went 2 years back with my phone, I'm… » 3/20/15 5:50am 3/20/15 5:50am

I got my subscription about a year ago. A few months ago they emailed me saying they upgraded my account to "unlimited" but could only currently give me 10 TB and to email them if I need more. I currently have almost all of it available and don't see myself using anywhere near that much but glad to know it's there. » 3/11/15 10:05am 3/11/15 10:05am

One of the bigger things that bothers me about this show is that they always set it up like the bachelor(ette) is torn down the middle between two people in the finale as if they're weighing them as equal options.... then they finally pick and usually propose. So, you're proposing to someone that scored 51% to the… » 3/10/15 9:38pm 3/10/15 9:38pm
