Thanks for the replies. While the "big fat liar" part was mostly tongue in cheek, it does feel good to have a little loot :D
Although there is an ominous faint squeal coming from the brakes in my truck...and they are about due :? I knew it wouldn't last!

I've always believed that money doesn't make you happy. Heck, I tell my son that all the time. But I got my stimulus check a few weeks back and used some to pay off a credit card and the rest is just sitting in my wallet (so to speak). I have $100 in my wallet and $200 in my safe at home. I haven't ...

Well, my side business has been alot more lately. I need to open a business checking account. I was wondering if there is anyone with a preference for one bank over the other? I live in Glenside Pa 19038 if that is relevant. Free checking with no minimum balances would be nice.

Congratulations! It's so crazy, but no. Even just a month ago, I thought I was going to buy myself a nice Stickley chair. But now I'd rather tuck that $2,000 into my IRA and bolster my savings for my upcoming move to working from home. That's a paradoxon I've observed with myself, as well: The more...

((The five-millionth visitor just passed through the doors. These numbers amaze me.))

A testament to the financial crisis out there and to the necessity of your work J.D.
Thanks for your hard work

Thank you for the replies, I fly only electric planes and gliders, so the only new costs would be for additional batteries as the ones I have now retire. We did some flying today. My son has a permanent grin the whole time he is flying the big glider. It was beautiful out today high of 52 degrees. (...

I was talking to by brother in law about my new path in life to avoid conspicuous consumption when he asked me if I was keeping my hobby. I fly stuff... airplanes, hang gliders, paragliders, sailplanes, and RC airplanes. While the airplanes are expensive (around $100 an hour) I think I can fly the r...

Wait, what? (If you wait a year, the car is going to continue to depreciate. Will your loan payments push down the amount of the loan enough to make up for the continued depreciation? Also, why do you keep the emergency fund in cash? Cash can be stolen or misplaced. I'd throw it in ING Direct and A...

I have an emergency fund of $1000 in cash in the house. At the end of the day its simple math, once you've cured the spending addiction, you just have to make more money, and pay the piper. Like Kmull said, The penny decisions now wont help the bad dollar decisions in the past. (well.. thats not exa...

Probably have to just suck it up for a while :roll: Most of the money saving ideas; thermostat settings, car insurance, eat reasonable meals, I have done. I just bought the house two years ago so I have no equity, especially in this market. I have nothing of any real value except for a couple welder...

I have lingered on the site here for some time. I truly am grateful for everyones effort here. I am married, one child, and about 60,000 in debt. (vehicles, school loans, credit cards). We have recently had the wake up call we so desperately needed and started a new way of consuming, one of reason a...

The problem with lessons is that they don't come cheap. I am married with one son. We make good money by most standards, But there is never enough at the end of the month. The sins of the past permeate. Although we have changed the way we treat out money and our urges, there are lingering debts to b...
