Went to the thrift store to buy a robe de chambre, found the 10$ price outrageous, didn't buy it. I'm afraid my standards over retail are getting unrealistic...
Lol, I just did this when looking at a twin bed for my daughter on Craigslist.  The discounts were not good enough.

Me too!  What other people mention as "cheap" I'm appalled by!

My husband thinks advanced hiking pants are too expensive. So he started sewing some for himself. They are good quality and fitting perfectly. I also got one that fit me perfectly.

My FIRED MPP today - it was so gorgeous out that I couldn't decide whether to hike or kayak.

You have all day - you can do both!  Enjoy!

This is probably more of a "you know you're mustashian when" problem but I think it's hilarious. Yesterday my office told us all about the company Christmas party being held in 10 days. The short notice means that I already have plans. My plans include cleaning horse stalls in exchange for free riding time.

Yes, I'd rather shovel actual horseshit than go to a work party.

A tourist approached me on the street asking where the best women's boutiques were in my city. I had nothing to even suggest because all my clothes come from Goodwill.

Went to the store to purchase some items.

Go to the check out and saw that I had to pay 10 cents for a shopping bag.

Realized that walking to the store made things a bit trickier.

I said screw it. I was going to carry all the stuff home.

My wife wasn't too happy as she wanted to buy a bag. 

She carried one of the items, I carried the rest of them.  Nice exercise though.  The baby shampoo bottle did start to wear a lot more as time went on, haha
Just here to feel guilty about my purchases which are often irrational, wants, and in an atypical budget.

Well, tell her you get them at this "trendy"  "exclusive" "vintage" "Socially conscious" "upcycling" place and give her directions.

We do this sometimes when we only buy a few items and only need to carry it towards the car. But I normally carry 2 reusable shopping bags in my handbag and use them most of the time when I shop.

Went to the thrift store again because I *really* need a robe de chambre, but I didn't manage to get myself to spend that money. I can use a hospital vest, no?

Do you sew at all and have an old sheet? There are some fairly simple DIY robe instructions out there. I'm considering making one out of a linen table cloth I have...

That's funny - it reminds me of being a teenager, when I lived in a remote, isolated village where it was very hard to buy anything. I got a job at the cafe in the general store, but needed to provide my own aprons, and nobody in town sold any (plus I didn't have any money, hence the job). My mom was able to sew me a couple from an old bedsheet and an old pillowcase, and they actually looked pretty good - I got compliments on them from customers all the time.

That's actually a good idea... I do have a machine, but I never actually used it yet. It will probably come out crap... then again, is to be used a couple of days, then just around the house... I might give it a try!

I had sort of the same thing with one of my colleagues last year. She asked me where I buy my clothing because she needed new things. The look on her face when I told her my clothes are mainly second-hand! ;)

I over-contributed to my RRSPs.... again.

My company matches contributions and it comes off automatically from my paycheque.  This is my second time over-contributing after returning from mat leave, where my contribution room is lower due to my earnings in the previous year being lower.  The first time I did it, it just didn't occur to me that I would have less room to contribute.  I just went on auto-pilot and contributed the max all year long.  I was a real headache to sort out with the Canada Revenue Agency, but I didn't have to pay any fees due to a 2K grace zone. 

But, I did it again.  This time I blame changing phones.  I had alerts set up on my old phone to remind me to check my contributions.  But then I inherited DH's old phone and didn't transfer the alerts.  So I over-contributed again (over 2K and I know I'll have to pay a fine :(

Awww that sucks! A few years ago I made a mess on my TFSA (closed the one in the bank and opened one with Investors Group) and I had to pay over 800$ of penalty... I was so fucking MAD at myself tor such a silly mistake what costed me so much! Then again, I reminded myself I could take the hit, so it's to file under "Live and learn".

Ouch! I did something similar just last month. Mine was due to one large transaction and I realized my math failure within a couple of days. I called TD and they were able to magically reverse the transaction. Can you try calling the bank and claim to be not very bright? It's hard on the ego, but easier on the stash.

I'm going to find out at the end of December if DH's new company will stop the 401-K contributions at the federal limit.  If they don't he will over-contribute by like $50.  I'm hoping since this is a large company that they actually know what to do in this situation!

All this talk of excess contributions reminds me, I COMPLETELY forgot to change my biweekly contribution to TSP from $693 to $692 earlier this year, like I was supposed to... and it takes so long to process those changes that I can't do anything now. I am doomed to overcontribute by $18, according to my math. Now I have to figure out if it's worth the time to fill out all that ridiculous paperwork just to get it back....

TSP contributions are automatically cut off at the limit (I always set mine up to over-contribute rather than under-contribute, and it's never been a problem), provided you are reaching the limit all in one type of TSP.  If you contribute to both civilian and uniformed accounts, it's up to you to make sure the combined total doesn't exceed the cap.

We qualify for a $50 rebate on the thermostat we just installed form our energy counsel! Unfortunately, part of the documentation they want is work orders from a contractor who did the install, and proof we paid the contractor in full. We DIY'd the install... hope it still goes through! =o

Good idea. I've been hoarding them, but it looks like we are on track to need to purchase little, if any formula for the first year.

Don't worry, it took me a while to figure it out too.  When you think about it, it's really a strange name for baby food powder.

But, I did it again.  This time I blame changing phones.  I had alerts set up on my old phone to remind me to check my contributions.  But then I inherited DH's old phone and didn't transfer the alerts.  So I over-contributed again (over 2K and I know I'll have to pay a fine :(

If it is not too much over, you can fill out a form to ask nicely for the fine to be waived,... they actually do this for an innocent error with a good reason why it was unintentional...

I ran into this last year and it was a pain..

If your CRA My Account balance or notice of assessment shows that you have exceeded the limits and owe taxes on excess contributions to an RRSP, then resolving the situation involves filing a tax form and paying the penalty tax or asking the CRA for a waiver. To report and pay the tax, file the Individual Tax Return for RRSP Excess Contributions, Form T1-OVP. To ask for a waiver, you must show that the excess contributions were an honest mistake and that you are making an effort to remove the over-contributions. The CRA will ask you to explain why you contributed too much. If you removed the excess, provide documentation, such as statements from your RRSP showing the withdrawals.  https://turbotax.intuit.ca/tax-resources/retirement-taxes/how-to-resolve-rrsp-over-contributions.jsp

wtf is formula?

Milk powder. Baby food.

They don't have it on your planet?

Don't worry, it took me a while to figure it out too.  When you think about it, it's really a strange name for baby food powder. 

Sometimes I wonder why we call the dishwasher a dishwasher and not a washing machine.

*Sigh* I'm starting to feel old when I post on the internet about good deals I get on baby food, and there are suddenly people who have no idea what I'm talking about. :( Is it really all downhill after your mid-twenties?

They have it on my planet, but in my part of the globe we call that Milchpulver and Babynahrung. Which I have never bought anyway.
I only know the word formula from formulas, like in chemistry or math.
Ah, on that topic, since I just read it on the Overheard thread: Can you imagine my confusion when I first read the word "baby shower" in connection to some unknown brand names (and fairly solid stuff) to bring?

Ha! Yeah, taken in a literal context, it would be a pretty strange group ritual. Maybe it still is!

I'm sorry, the planet comment was bitchy.

Please accept this peace offering: a clip of comedian Danny Bhoy taking the piss out of Australians for the creative way we name things. :)

actually we did. knowing the college fund idea would be laughed at my wife sent out an email explaining what sizes of everything he wears and the fact that we have about 5,000 stuffed animals and he has no interest in them what so ever. and the last sentence does ask for gift receipts to be included lol.

Tell everyone your child loves Disney.  You can buy it online too!  search for "DIS"

I wonder what is better, using money that would go towards a 529 to invest in your child's retirement or have money to go towards college loans. 

In the above example, if you start putting money away for your child 50 years before his/her retirement, talk about compounding...
Just here to feel guilty about my purchases which are often irrational, wants, and in an atypical budget.

Well, in the UK we couldn't call it a washing machine because then what would we call our... washing machine?

(Do you not call your washing machine a washing machine? Do you call it a 'washer?' Or am I just totally missing the joke / point?)
