“Simply making decisions, one after another, can be a form of art.” – John Gruber So the other day I was feeling bored and pretty unproductive, and rather than waste even more of my time I decided to shoot a note to my online friends and see if I could learn something new.

If you save money by accident, does it still count?

When I was a kid, I used to sneak in double cheeseburgers off the dollar menu for snacks every time I hit up the movie theater.

At a pack a day, you’re spending $1,900 a year. […]
