There’s more love than hate for Stitch Fix (plus other miscellany)
I’ve a number of smallish issues to mention. Which way it’s time for a miscellany submit!
Stitch Fix posts win
When I do a Stitch Fix submit, there are all the time a couple of readers who voice some gentle disappointment about it.
(Which is ok. Not everybody will love each submit.)
For instance, on the most recent Stitch Fix submit, a reader commented that she’d be so happy after I give up doing Stitch Fix posts, after which within the very subsequent remark, a reader stated she loves those posts, and he or she’ll be in point of fact unhappy if I ever prevent.
Which is solely how running a blog is going. You can’t make all the other folks satisfied all the time!
At any fee, I simply sought after to mention that although I haven’t formally tallied the feedback through the years, I know that nearly all of commenters to find Stitch Fix posts to be very entertaining and do need me to stay doing them.
I completely perceive this as a result of I all the time assume it’s so nice to observe other bloggers check out on garments, whether or not it’s Stitch Fix or one thing else.
Seeing them on actual other folks fairly than fashions is pleasing, and model, just right or unhealthy, is a laugh to peer.
And it’s a laugh to peer bloggers pop out from in the back of the digicam.
So, for the ones of you that hate Stitch Fix posts, my apologies; they’re most likely going to stay going down as soon as 1 / 4 or so.
There are over three,000 posts within the Frugal Girl archives, although, so optimistically you’ll be able to to find one thing else to entertain your self when Stitch Fix pops up!
Sears does nonetheless take Lands’ End returns.
At least, mine does! The native Sears retailer internet web page stated they took Lands’ End returns, and I referred to as forward simply to verify.
So I popped via whilst I used to be within the house and did my go back and not using a issues.
Yay for no longer paying go back transport!
A squirrel nested in my van once more.
This time isn’t as unhealthy because the time two years in the past, when my van was once undrive-able. But nonetheless, it’s irritating.
I became the important thing, noticed the test engine mild, opened my hood, and located the engine compartment crammed filled with leaves. AUGH.
The remaining time this came about, it was once after I used to be out of the city for a number of days and my van sat within the driveway. So, I’m guessing they most likely made their house in there whilst I used to be long gone snowboarding.
I wiped clean the leaves out, and on a daily basis since, infrequently a couple of occasions in line with day, this squirrel has refilled my engine compartment with leaves.
The document for fastest engine fill-up? A part hour! I parked my van within the driveway for a part hour, and it were given full of leaves once more.
Whenever this occurs, I all the time assume how great it could be to construct a storage.
But then I come to my senses and understand that it’s a lot inexpensive to fix cord injury each few years than it’s to construct a storage.
I ordered a few of this rodent deterrent tape (beneficial via Consumer Reports) and dropped it off on the mechanic in conjunction with my van remaining evening.
They’re going to interchange the wires, blank out the nest mess in my blower (the AC and warmth don’t paintings proper when there’s nesting subject material in there, oddly sufficient.) and wrap my wires with the tape.
Here’s hoping that’s sufficient to stay this power squirrel away!
P.S. We already attempted mothballs (they don’t stay the squirrels away however they do fumigate the interior of your automotive each time you flip at the warmth/AC. Yuck.). And a flashing mild doesn’t paintings for squirrels since they do their grimy paintings all through the day.
My mechanic did give me one useful tip lately, although; he stated to all the time flip my warmth/AC to recirc earlier than I close the automobile off as a result of this closes get entry to to the blower. So, I will be able to at least stay them from messing up the local weather regulate.
