[-$83,290] In the Papers

On Valentine’s Day, I toyed around with the idea of re-upping this post about being awkwardly single in the workplace or something equally as snarky, but, sigh, I didn’t get around to it.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this while perusing the interwebs…

…an article posted both on MarketWatch and the NY Post featuring a couple of quotes from yours truly!

I was interviewed for this months ago and had forgotten about it. Seems timely that it would post on Valentine’s Day.

Provocative NY Post title aside, give it a read. Is it junk or truth? Share your thoughts.

    Congrats to you. Yes, being single makes you poor as you’re not able to split everything with another person…rent is the most expensive, food is behind it. Also, there’s no option to be on someone else’s health insurance. Go you on the $83,290. Proud of you girl!


    • Thanks. I got my state tax refund ($718) and within minutes of the money showing up in my account, I threw every penny of it at my student loan.

    Well, a good way to look at it is that these articles could turn into some freelance gigs! Sounds like you had a GREAT Valentines Day to me. For Valentine’s Day, I met with my tax preparer for that refund. It’s all how you look at it!

    It can be harder to pay for things and do everything on one salary, I agree.

    That’s awesome you got quoted! {frantically goes to read the article now!}
