Super Cheap Yoga in the Mission and Soma

This amazing photo is from Blogadilla.  It’s also from 1972. If you remember awhile back Chloe told you about all the FREE Yoga classes in the East Bay.  That was cool of her.  I hope at least one of you sent her a holiday card for that. Here on this

Broke-Ass Interior Decorating Tips

When I moved into my first apartment after living in campus housing for three years, I was all about making my new digs look as snazzy and non-dormy as possible. Aside from upgrading from my tried and true “taped up poster and Christmas lights” motif, I had a hard time
