Also, consider your neighborhood next time you're moving -- are there walkable destinations? Are there a lot of them? 
 
Just walk. http://bit.ly/1lBIH5Y
For 242 days, Jonathon Stalls walked. When he was done, he had traveled some 3,030 miles, from the Delaware coast to San Francisco, his life in a backpack, his dog at his side, relying on the kindness of strangers.

...did you feel that? 
After three decades of slow growth, middle-class incomes in the U.S. appear to trail those of Canada. Poor Americans now make less than the poor in several other countries.

What's your first memory of the internet? Mine: Looking up baseball stats at my friend Skip's house. I think it was a Prodigy account on his dad's monochromatic laptop computer. Both the internet at the laptop were incomprehensibly futuristic to me. 
Yesterday, we watched a timelapse of the internet spreading to different countries in the world. Now we want to know when the internet arrived in your life.

There are a lot of checklists like this out there -- is there anything you ask yourself before making a purchase? 

For my part, I find that just being more actively involved in my savings -- for example, having a couple of very specific goals -- helps me save money throughout the day.

Right now I have a goal that is a long, long way off -- horrifyingly, six years at my current rate of savings -- but I've decided against making frivolous purchases with that in mind, even though in many cases those purchases were things I'd been looking forward to for months. 
 
Here are 6 questions that you should ask yourself before you buy anything. Asking these questions will help you stop, think and than decide if you should purchase it. Learn to be a smart shopper!

Another plug for the community where I'm posting lots of thinky consumer stuff. Are you down with the sharing economy? Are you Heartbleed-safe? Do you know how to calculate what you should be saving for your next goal? Join up and chat with me about how not to get screwed by missing little stuff. Or big stuff.

It's stupid that you're not here right now, sitting at a table by yourself using the wifi, or with another person, or around the larger table that seems good for book clubs, or on the couch by the sunny window, or near the stage where apparently some interesting things happen at night; drinking a carefully made beverage like the coffee I get most days or the excellent homemade chai that may be the best my wife or I have ever had; eating the made-to-order breakfast burrito that is so packed with delicious ingredients that it is worth the wait (and there is a bit of a wait for it); enjoying the pleasant and funkily cultivated atmosphere.
