I used to get $30 haircuts about five times a year. Then, last year, because everything was closed around here for months, I learned I could cut my own hair with a beard trimmer for free. I'm never going back to paying for haircuts.

I last paid for a haircut in 2005 or 2006. My "buzz it when it can get messed up" lifestyle in haircutting seem to work. :shrug:

You see, that just makes me angry. I could have been not paying for haircuts for the past 15 years. Why didn't I hear about this lifestyle choice earlier?!?!?!?

My hair isn’t suitable for the public in its natural state or if I let it grow too long :(

I last want to a hairdresser in 2005, right before getting married. Paid a fortune for it, too.

Amazing. I've used clippers and saved a bundle over the years keeping it buzzed in summer and then let it grow out in winter. Have been debating if I'll cut it a bit or just wait for May/June. It gets a bit too shaggy for my taste by then and I gets antsy, but I don't want to go too short in winter since my head gets cold, especially at night.

I think the last time I went to a local barber - well reviewed with a loyal following and only one chair - was probably eight years ago? Give or take. Got a cut, beard trim, and with "generous" tip, it ran $20. I know cuts can be a lot more expensive in the big city (Portland), but even when I was regularly getting a flattop it wasn't more than $20 in the late 90s (also by one of the best flattoppers in the metro area - she used to do a guy who did commercials for his appliance store).

Have to think that places like Supercuts and Perfect Cuts (anything but, got some horrible chop jobs in such places for like $10) has kept prices more competitive. Not sure if they even exist any more. I know the local place closed around 2015 and I've no idea where any others are. We still have at least three traditional barbers in our downtown and numerous stylists.

But men's cuts in Japan routinely ran the equivalent of $50 in the mid 90s. Dread to think what they cost now.

My boyfriend’s dad used to shave all his hair off every few months and when he had to go a salon for the first time he thought $25 was a lot. I was like wtf I’m lucky if I have a cut for less than $100. Often they’ll charge me for a long hair cut because my hair is just under my shoulders. So much easier to just be a male.

When I told my bf how much my hair cost, he said “I’m glad that’s the only girly thing you do because all women stuff is so inflated”.

It's called a pink tax. Consumer products marketed to women are often priced slightly higher than equivalent products marketed to men. Slightly higher on average. Certain specific products and services can be far more expensive.

And now I have another complaint because my hair is dry and the colour is not right. I had lighter blonde foils put in but they are too light and now I look grey and I'm probably going to have go back in to get it fixed :(

yeah, but lest we forget, most men haven't taken to wearing foundation, rouge, lipstick, eyeshadow, etc AND our garments tend to be fewer than what women have "traditionally" worn

it's a real racket, but isn't most of consumerism?

I also haven't been to a hairdresser since about 2005, but I don't shave it or trim it, I just use regular scissors to cut when I feel like it , sometimes i'ts good enough and sometimes I make a mess of it but after a few days my hair kind of fixes itself.

My hair is so fine it gets matted when too long and keeping it out of my eyes is a problem. A couple weeks ago I took scissors to it any old how, so now it looks weird but I can see most of the time.

My daughter has trichotillomania and pulled all her hair out, so she wears wigs. Maybe I should do the same.

As for the pink tax, at least they got rid of women's pay toilets. I remember trying to organize a piss-in at the airport....

I never use dishwashers. I don't understand the appeal. Given loading/unloading time, they don't save much time over just doing the dishes by hand. And they don't get every dish as clean as I do.

Yup I love my dishwasher. Saves me a ton of time and energy and I hate doing them by hand. The only things I have to do by hand are the pots and pans and they are fairly painless.

I have a working dishwasher, but I have never used it in the 7 1/2 years I've lived here. I actually really love doing dishes - it's the one household chore I really enjoy, perhaps because it offers the easiest and quickest gratification. And yeah, dishwashers in my experience (I've had them before) never work all that well to begin with. My brother insisted on using it a couple of times when he was here and I had to re-wash half of the dishes.

Now if there was a machine that would not only wash and dry my laundry, but fold it and put it away as well, I'd be on it. I hate doing laundry.

Doing dishes, folding laundry. You guys dislike the easiest household chores. Cleaning is what I find annoying. Probably because I'm not good at it. I really need to learn better technique.

I really missed not having a dishwasher after a few years in this apartment, so I bought my own. Well worth it even if it seemed like a huge investment at the time. Problem is, when you're ill for a couple days to a week, things can really pile up and it makes catching up even more of an issue. Since mine has only one rack which is too close to the heating element, no plastics can we cleaned, but at least flatware, dishes, mugs, glass, don't have to pile up. It's probably the number one reason I keep the kitchen reasonably clean.

Didn't mind doing laundry when I had my own machines, now that I have to share a single, pathetically small one with everyone else, I just hate it. At least it's better now, for a while we had people who'd leave their stuff sitting in the machines for days. Also, it was always filthy. The new owner has people who clean the little laundry room even if they can't be bothered sorting recyclables or moving cans to and from the curb.

I also don't mind sweeping or vacuuming usually though recently it's been bugging my allergies a lot more - I'm trying to decide if I'll just buy a new machine for that or replace parts. But I prefer the broom actually.

The one thing I detest is dusting - again, allergies and why I'm thinking about investing in something that will make it easier.

I used to live in this apartment where all kinds of pollen and dust would accumulate due to the surroundings and me having the windows open a lot. I moved out eventually, but what helped me in that situation was an air-filter. I would turn it on a few hours before I went to sleep (the time where my allergies would hit the hardest) and it helped wonders for me. I gave it to my brother-in-law who has more severe allergies and will suffer through spring pretty much anywhere and he put it it in his bedroom with good results. Those are a bit pricy, but I found the effect more significant than, say, a Roomba.

My gf started the humidifier last night, after about three months of not using it. Problem is she didn't properly clean it, and some stagnant water remained in the humidifier basin. After about two hours, we both woke feeling short of breath and dizzy, with cold shakes and the rest, and we are still feeling like garbage. God knows what grew in that water.

Like a cleaning lady/man :lol: ?
no just a vacuum cleaner with excellent filtration

I have a Panasonic upright which doesn't have the greatest filtration, but it would work if the brush attachment didn't fall apart (poorly made) and the machine's center of balance was a lot lower. It falls over very easily and with enough force to hurt or break things. It's second hand, but better than what I had before.

I've also go an Electrolux canister that's probably older than everyone on the forum except 3eyes. It actually works fine but desperately needs a new cord, wheel, and hose. It also predates modern filtration by my own lifespan, so ...

Thus, fixing the machines I have could easily run 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of something new. That's why I need to investigate that option more fully.

I did have in home help when I was really, really ill. Alas, while he was super trustworthy and had worked for friends for years, he relocated to the middle of the country. While I know there are good people out there, I don't have any connections. This has been an issue to for the 90yo gentleman I work for as well.

I have air filters and use them on occasion when something causes problems, but honestly the noise drives me nuts. (Same thing with the fan above the stove.) I also didn't find they solved the problem of dusting, but yes, like during the forest fires this autumn, they helped keep the air a bit more breathable. I might try turning it on an hour before bedtime though and see what happens.

As odd as it sounds, it's just easier to leave the dust alone, accumulating where it does, mostly in out of the way places, and then doing a thorough clean in increments. I know, sounds strange, but again, a good vacuum with good filtration would help immensely.

It's not that I don't like a clean home, it's just that even with the small space I have (2 bedroom apartment) it literally takes me a week to "spring clean". Furniture is heavy and I have to do it on my own. I just don't have the stamina, especially when I stir up the dust and my breathing is affected. It's really a pain.

It's one of the most redundant, repetitive lyrics I've ever heard. You can basically boil down the entire song to:

Some of those that work forces
Are the same that burn crosses

Killing in the name of

Now you do what they told ya

You justify those that died
By wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites

Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me

Yeah screw all songs that dare repeat something. Thankfully the followup track has long verses.
It's one of the most redundant, repetitive lyrics I've ever heard. You can basically boil down the entire song to:

Some of those that work forces
Are the same that burn crosses

Killing in the name of

Now you do what they told ya

You justify those that died
By wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites

Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
All I know is that when Zack de la Rocha yells those lyrics, they're awesome.
