    A lot although I do combine household products with food.

    I'm really more concerned if food gets wasted than what it costs (I'll economize elsewhere as well). My diet is majority organic, so...

    +1 (only I don't have microwave actually).

    I have a um non-electric kettle. Water boils pretty fast if you only make about enough as I try to remember (saving gas here). But sometimes I'm lazy...

    I would keep the walker if pretty much everyone who gets hips surgery uses one for awhile, I'd get rid of it maybe if it's a rare complication. I guess I'd lean toward keeping it although I am also...

    Noone should be unhappy because their basic needs aren't met. But beyond that much of happiness is their own business. IOW the Nordic countries have it entirely right. The happiness measures may...

    Comparing Bernie Sanders campaign proposals to actual policy elsewhere is a category error to begin with. I don't say that as a knock on Sander's or anything, but comparing proposals to actual...

    I believe the Salvation Army throws less of their item donations away that some like the Goodwill, but I have never seen the thrifts compared conclusively. But that has to be an important...

    +1 And of course there are studies on age discrimination in employment and women, it hits women earlier and it hits them worse. But that 50 year old man is by no means home free either. Most...

    Yes they are bad policies. Yes consumers may not navigate short term policies well.

    If you think ACA policies are working to give people coverage though, you don't know all that is going on. ...

    I don't think it makes anyone look younger (well ok maybe the 30 year old who has gone all gray but that's because they ACTUALLY ARE YOUNG and just genetically programmed for early graying). But...

    Maybe I wanted at times to be a teacher, a journalist, a musician. But journalism hardly exists as a profession at this point, and very few people could ever make it as a musician at any time. I...
