What people don't seem to understand on this board is that low interest debt is still money that you have spent and that is costing you more, every month. It sounds simple, because it is. How much MORE do you want to pay for your education than the 15k you currently owe? It is best to pay it off as ...

The buying power of the dollar. It's lost a lot of it lately. So if you're losing 10% in this down economy, (ours at work is about 15% down across the board) and tack on the 3% under-stated, government issued figure on inflation, and you're still down 13%, some estimate the true rate of inflation to...

How much money are you spending and how much extra can you bear to stop spending? I mean are you going to starbucks everyday? Will your quality of life decrease if you reduce consumption of starbucks? Could you consume a smaller cup of coffee? Cut all costs you can such as shop your cable service, y...

I know the purpose of keeping cash on hand is that it's easy to spend, and that is something better than having in stocks or mutual funds, but the dollar's less than stellar record lately would highly concern me. I would take it down to the bank and buy Euros with it and put my euros in my safe. OR ...

Unless you're in a different country than the one you live in, just use you're visa logo debit card. You can always do cash back. I went through mexico with over 1500 dollars in my bag driving through very dangerous areas and I was fine. I just brought it every where I went. You could always do that...

Well the stock market is still over priced. If you don't know anything about foreign economies, which is of course, incredibly difficult to learn about, I would spend 27 dollars on a book by Peter Schiff called Crash-proof how to profit from the coming economic collapse. It has quite a few charts an...

In a little over a year and a half I paid off 15k in credit card debt, saved up 14 more, bought a house, and married the girl of my dreams! Started a company with my parents that now owns six rental properties... and hope to start another company this year. I also started a blog, http://www.iwillesc...

You my friend, are more brave than I am. I couldn't have handle 15k of debt, let alone 80k. The good news is you have a college education and hopefully your degree allows you to earn a high income so you can pay it down more quickly. Won't your salary increase over the next few years?

I am a minimalist when it comes to what I need. Very simple. I say, buy the mobile home. It's better to buy one of those than to RENT anything. Have you checked out the FHA? If you're mid-score is higher than 590 you should be ok. In this sense, you do barely qualify. It depends on what is effecting...

Is that inflation is moving at anywhere from 3% to 12% depending on which economist or government agency you're talking to. Some articles on Yahoo recently were saying to get ready for up to 6%... so any savings account you're putting your money into is still losing value, or in the very best case s...

What do you people think is going to happen when the FED is forced to raise interest rates? Mexico and The EU, Korea, Thailand, Chili, dominican islands have, eventually we will too. And all those people who were on the edge, are now going to be pushed over. The banks will lose billions on unsecured...

After the collapse of Bearstearns, Indymac, and the near failures of freddymac and Fanniemae, I've become quite concerned about the solvency of other banks. Looking at the evidence, WAMU appears to be next. While I can't be certain, If I had any money over there I'd pull it out now just to be on the...

I am getting married in September and it has been such a challenge to do things for under 5k. I have about 11k in savings for both emergency fund, wedding, and house down payment. Fortunately the down payment is being reimbursed by the seller because of the crappy housing market in CA. My fiancee an...
