Okay, we get it-sometimes people fall in love at work. But there's a big difference between getting cozy with a coworker on your level, and dating the boss.
According to executive coach and management consultant Marc Dorio, starting a relationship with your boss is a no-win-situation for you. Why? It puts you in a vulnerable position. If you break up, you're in an awkward spot and, depending on the guy, he could make your work life total hell.

Luckily, the insightful shopping bloggers at Extrabux dug up some useful information on what to buy and when.
Top 10 biggest spending excuses!
Based on price data Extrabux spent two years gathering, the hard-earned results show that prices of specific goods can fluctuate on any given day of the week. Take computers, for instance.
