How much is a dollar worth?

This is not a math question, not an inflation & economy question, it’s your opinion on how you evaluate your own spending.

In my case :
25 cents=gallon of drinking water
40 cents=postage stamp
=Double Cheeseburger @McD
=gallon of gas
=used DVD or hour wage
=any piece of clothing

This said, a dollar at the vending machine is TOO MUCH
A dollar for a pocket sized can of mints is TOO MUCH
Two dollars for an energy drink is TOO MUCH (try 99cent stores)
A book for -20 is TOO MUCH.

So I want to know your opinion as to what you consider the most bang for your buck on a regular basis. These questions may help you give your answer
* If you were to lose all your possessions and found a few bucks, what’s your priority to buy?
* How much do you make and what portion of it is spent on something other than food and shelter?

SO AGAIN, how much is a dollar worth to you? What’s the best you can get for the same dollar? What would you consider "too much" for something?

help with colors for interior walls for a tiny little house?

Ahhh! How the heck is someone with *no* experience whatsoever supposed to choose interior wall colors?!? I have a house only slightly larger than a postage stamp. It has white walls and I am sick of white walls! I have a 1 bedroom house..a really tiny 1 bedroom house with a sorta kinda finished basement. I’m not worried about color/style coordination with furniture, but I *am* worried about making a choice that will make the place look smaller than it already is. The multitudenous pages with suggestions with conflicting suggestions or suggestions for people with *way* fancier places. Anybody know of a site with suggestions for simple needs? Or maybe some suggestions from people with personal experience with such things? I have a huge yard that is really unusable and no money for landscaping and doing it myself would probably just make matters worse. I know me, I would would just start something but never finish it (either too hard or no time). If I can’t make the outside more appealing, I at least want to do more with the interior. Help?

Has anyone ever paid their T-Mobile bill at one of the T-Mobile stores?

I am so mad! I went into one of the T-Mobile stores to pay my monthly bill. It was the same store that I went to when I bought the phone.

Five days later I get a phone call from T-Mobile telling me that my bill was never paid and that it is now going to be shut off because I never paid the bill!

I went into the store where I paid the bill, and they tell me that it takes a week to 10 days for my payment to get processed!

They charged me a service fee of .00 when I paid the bill. Heck! I could have bought a postage stamp for .41 cents and mailed the payment myself. The payment would have gotten paid a lot sooner.

I called up the T-Mobile head office and asked them what the heck the deal was. They told me…..and get this…..I should have went into an official T-Mobile store. I asked him…what store did I go into?….a PRETEND T-Mobile store????

Apparently some stores just pay to use the T-Mobile name.

Has anyone ever had this same problem with T-Mobile?

Does the post office give free boxes for shipping?

Like lets say you want to ship something to a person that they bought off ebay. Before you do this, can you go to the post office and get boxes? Lets say they send you a money order, do you go and cash the money order, and then go and buy a postage stamp for the box or what?

Also how can I send my box back to the seller? She doesnt answer her e-mails. She accepts refunds if it isnt working, and my product isnt working, so can I just put a note inside the box, and tape it back up, and put it out in the mail? Or do I have to pay to reship it?

Why can’t people live w/in their means?

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not here to preach because I’m guilty of this, too. Sometimes, I find myself buying things I don’t need. Why do people (myself included) do this? One time, I tried an experiment. For 1 week, I only spent $ when it was absolutely necessary. I marked down everything I spent. I also marked down the price of items that I was tempted to buy, but didn’t – just to see much I didn’t spend. Necessary items I bought: a postage stamp, a quart of milk & toilet tissue – total .32. Paid cash. No credit card debt. That’s all I really needed for that week. Took my lunch to work everyday & ate dinner at home. Now, for what I was tempted to buy, but didn’t: total 8. I thought that realization would cure me of impulse buying, but it didn’t. So, why is it so hard to live within our means? Why do people buy things they don’t need? Do we really need the latest gadget out there? Instead of spending xxx amount of dollars on a new electronic, why don’t we put that $ in our savings instead & watch it grow? I’d like to know the answer to this so that I can cure myself of reckless spending.

Can I ship these Kongs USPS with just a postage stamp?

I have two Kongs (the dog toy) that I want to ship. They will both fit in a standard sized mailbox. If I put them in a package (not a box), just put a postage stamp on it, and put it in my mailbox…will it ship? Or do you need a certain type of stamp/label or something? I’d rather not have to buy a special box or pay extra shipping for something that fits in my mailbox. I’ve just never tried anything like this before.

I had contacted USPS before on this issue, but it took them a few weeks to respond and they just gave me a generic answer regarding what type of shipments they have and how much it costs. They never addressed my specific question as to whether or not I could just put the item in a small package, put a stamp on it, and put it in my mailbox for pickup.
