    I am getting ready to find out about how expensive it is to eat out and not sure what to take. First date in twenty seven years.

    Eating less, which works because I still have weight to lose.

    Good luck! I hope you have fun! My suggestion is - if no alcohol, at least $40, if alcohol at least $60. LOL Of course, it all depends on where you eat, what you have and who you are with.

    I agree with the difficulty of using the phone. I have a refurbished Amazon Fire tablet. I’ve had it for two years and only use it to read NYT, washington post, plus books and magazines from the library. For the price it can’t be beat. They have a lot of Black Friday specials. It has saved me a ton of money. I never buy a magazine, newspaper, audio book or book. I do have to wait sometimes but who cares. And the NYT requires you to log in every three days but a few minutes saves so much money.

    it took a while to get used to it because we loved reading print books, magazines and newspapers.

    Just like with print books, I usually have lots and books on hold, but getting the NYT and Washington Post alone were worth it.

    I would second the Amazon Fire recommendation.
    With Apple products, you seemingly pay a premium for their perceived cachet.

    I have an iPhone 13 and an older (2015) MacBook Air, as well as an Apple Watch. I like how they seamlessly work together. I hate Android. Had it in the past. Never again.

    Shocked by the price of eggs… Costco organic eggs sold out before Thanksgiving… is there something else going on?

    I'm paying $8.50 for pasture-raised eggs,18-count. Fifty cents an egg, so not a bad nutrition bargain.

    I pay $5.50 for a dozen organic grass-fed eggs from one provider, and then sometimes we buy them from a local with a chicken coop who charges $3.50 for 10, but they're definitely not weighed or sized. Or even consistent in color, but their yolks sure are good!

    I believe a lot of birds were culled this year due to bird flu.
