This 1,425-square-foot condo at King and Tecumseth is somewhat of an anomaly. With three bedrooms, two bathrooms and no unit above—not to mention 360-degree balconies—it’s almost like a mini-penthouse. Despite the spacious layout, it still sold for a smidge under seven figures when it went on the market last fall. Lori Howard, of Hope Designs, left a career in social work to pursue her passion for interior design.
I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but I’m 28 years old and I’ve never made a budget. It’s not that I don’t believe in their positive—err, lucrative—effects; I just think I have a pretty good handle on my finances and don’t need to meticulously track them to know when and where I’m spending too much. But after struggling to make ends meet for the last nine months, I figured it might not be a bad idea to see what this budget thing is all about. So, I decided to test-drive one for a week.

If you’ve ever wondered what the night before a weekend of writing looks like, just imagine me in the company of a large pizza and a root beer binge-watching new episodes of Scandal, Grey’s and The Good Place, and passing out by 9pm.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
