You actually plan a budget:...or at least tried to.

You pass out before 9PM (not because you were drinking all day): It's not easy getting up at a reasonable hour every morning. Sometimes, you've just got to give in and get yourself in bed before the Jimmy Kimmel Show.

You cook with wine: Okay, so you drank most of the bottle, but at least you have a sophisticated palette.

You throw dinner parties: Nothing says you're grown like preparing and eating a meal at a real dinner table.

You own actual slacks: Whether you need them for work or not, every grown woman needs a pair of slacks. Sandro Pants-Philharmonie ($315)

You cook your own lunch for work the next day: Bringing leftovers is just cheaper than buying lunch everyday. And grown folks are fiscally responsible!

You're okay with staying in all weekend: What better time than Friday and Saturday night to binge watch a Netflix series?

You have throws on your couch: ...and they're not just there to cover up stains.

Lambskin ($319)

You buy nice tissue paper: Because you are just way too old to be wiping with the cheap stuff.

Charmin Ultra Soft Toilet Paper Mega Rolls ($13.99, down from $18.99)

You own hand towels:...and have a separate collection of face towels.

Sand Egyptian Cotton Hand Towel ($14.95)

You traded cheap beer for Trader Joe's wine: It's less expensive, tastes better, and goes perfectly with that wonder pot you made for dinner.

Jungle Juice sounds disgusting to you: Yeah, you don't know what's in there anyway...
