For Sale Lovers: Stylish Furniture that’s 50% Off or More
We’re about to enter “sale season” when every retailer touts their steals and deals to entice you to spend your hard-earned money at their store. I’m all for a sale, but get back to me when you have some real reductions to tempt me with. 10% you say? Sorry, that is definitely not going to make me walk across the room and dig my credit card out of my bag. 20%? I’m listening. 30%? 40%? 50%? Okay, you have my attention.

If You’ve Always Wondered Why Anthropologie Smells So Good, It’s Because of This Candle
Anthropologie is set up in a way that it’s not just a “store” but a “shopping experience.” It’s a place you stroll through, linger around, dream of living in. Part of that magical experience? The just-strong-enough aroma that fills the air, luring you across the impeccably styled threshold. I always thought the retailer’s sweet smell was a perfect marriage of all the candles they were burning throughout the store.

You’re Not Imagining It: Airbnb Really Does Lead to Higher Rents and Home Prices, Study Finds
Home-sharing site Airbnb has its share of critics, from neighbors who hate the idea of strangers in their building or on their block, to traditional hotels that want Airbnb hosts to receive the same tax treatment and regulatory scrutiny they do, to, of course, the occasional creep-out victims. But another consistent argument is of the bigger-picture variety: that Airbnb drives up rents in cities where housing costs are already staggering.

Buying A Sofa Online Seemed Risky, But It Was The Best Thing Ever
My family and I live in a remote area—the nearest town has 200 people—so when it came time to replace our falling-apart sofa, our IRL shopping options were very limited unless we wanted to devote our lives to driving to furniture stores. The closest shops were perfectly respectable but lacked a certain flair. It seemed like ordering a sofa online was our only good option, and I’m thrilled it was, because it ended up working out great.

If You Want to Get Along With Your Roommates, Don’t Do This
The standard solution for dividing up roommate chores is to come up with some sort of rotation schedule, but while that works for some people, sometimes it’s just not the most efficient way (even if it does feel more “fair” because some chores are arguably better than others) to do things.

Stop Buying Actual Garbage
I enjoy saving money, and as an obvious corollary, I hate wasting it. So when I put something that I spent money on in the garbage can, it rankles my frugal sensibilities and I wonder, Did I really have to buy that? Here’s how to stop buying things that will, shortly after they’re used, end up in the trash — and when it’s okay to say yes to the disposables. Disposable items offer convenience and efficiency.
