A lot of talk about growth and investing on here, but anyone have tips for budgeting?
I have a budget but I'm not great at following it because I had become so accustomed to the habit of using my credit card to reap rewards and paying it in full (knowing I can "afford" to pay in full every month). It's been a mental hurdle for me to spend WAY below my means so that I can actually FIRE.
Totally random. Has anyone seen the HBO series The Flight Attendant? I binged it over the last 2 weeks. Thought it was pretty interesting but can't imagine anyone carrying off that many bottles off a plane unnoticed much less drinking them all at once.
Currently flying NYC —> CLT weekly and just made Plat Pro. I hear Delta is by far better from multiple people, worth doing a status match and switching loyalties?
How do you consultants willingly fly on United airlines? Its regarded as one of the worst in business yet I see some prefer United. Am I missing something? I feel they should be dropped form star alliance

If I have a super ITM 22.5 call 6/18 expiry for MGNI - does it make sense to exercise the call and own the underlying stock? The delta is .93 and .0024. I’m feeling bullish about the stock because it keeps getting better and better
I am on notice with a few more weeks before my LWD. Approval status is showing green from my RM but clearance status from RM, HR Partner, Admin, IT, ES Travel is still pending. Only ES (Payroll & Benefits) is showing as green. What is the SLA for clearing all these? I despise my RM and he knows that. Will it be a problem in getting the clearances? Can he delay it so that I don't get my relieving letter & Experience letter on time after LWD? How to get all these clearances. What I need to do?
Moving to San Diego from Santa Barbara. Looking to be relatively central so I can meet people, go out for drinks or other fun active activities (I'm a runner) What are your thoughts on the vibes in Banker's Hill vs. Point Loma (liberty station) vs Little Italy vs North Park? Is there somewhere else I should be considering?
What happens if I use my old employer’s rental car leisure code that likely comes with primary insurance and get a car scratch? I have business cards from my old job but nothing else that’s prove I ‘still’ work there. Will the primary insurance simply deny the claim and it’ll automatically go to my secondary insurance (thru credit card)?
Beginner here. I'm trying to use my points to buy a flight to Puerto Rico. If Delta costs me 55k points on my Amex (valued at $600 per Points Guy), versus United which costs me 60k points (valued at $700), shouldn't I still just go with the Delta cause I'm spending less points?
Are there any ea roles hiring (mainly Chi but flex to elsewhere) with chill creatively minded environments? I am great at the work but can’t deal with the typical buttoned up seniority bootlicking LOL
