I Agree with the above posters. First and foremost... seperate the business and the personal into two seperate accounts. Set up a monthly "paycheck" from your business to your personal account and don't touch the business account for personal expenses. Second you need a spending diary.. tw...

But the point the detrackers are trying to make is the idea that the OP doesn't "need" an $8000 car that requires financing. While the OP may need a car (though it doesn't sound urgent as he stated he was still saving up the down payment), a $2000 used economy car that he can pay cash for ...

The qustion you didn't ask was how often is your rate adjusted? Credit cards tend to adjust monthly, and mortgages tend to adjust annually or bi-annually. Never investigated a HELOC, so not sure, but suspect they may fall somewhere inbetween. Also be skeptical of the below prime rate. While banks do...

In your example about a job loss? Happened to us, before we had fully melded finances. When that did happen, we sat down and discussed which expenses DH would still be expected to pay from his unemployment income, and which ones I'd take on fully. And it was no problem. In fact, while he was unempl...

While I agree, a number of the post were a bit too harsh and judgemental, the advice within it is good. No matter how you decide to handle the debt, once married ALL debt will effect both of you. Consider what would have to happen if he lost his job for 6 months? You going to have to start paying th...

Have you looked into Navy Federal Credit Union (http://www.navyfcu.org) or USAA (http://www.usaa.com)? They may be able to help you get good rates on your house especially since you are in the military and are probably more willing to work with you based on your circumstances. Thanks for your servi...

Keep them open. If you close your cards, your credit card history will go out the door with it. http://getprequalified.com/article/104852/credit_repair/credit_scores_101.html From personal expirence.. this is baloney! Yes your credit score will go down on the initial closing of an account, but it's...

When you say sell it at a loss, do you mean sell it for less then it was worth when you bought it? Or sell it for less then you currently owe? I agree with the other posters, talk with a real estate on what the house could be listed right now, what improvements they would recommend to help sell it. ...

Some question I would ask first. You keep saying your income would be replaced by eliminating employees. So your belief is that you could do the work of two or more employees? Why can't you eliminate some of those employees now? You say the business just needs marketing. Why can't you help out in th...

Actually, the less driving we do, the less the maintenance costs us for our roads. Not to mention the fact that we can start cancelling road expansion projects and additional highway interchange projects.

Even simply downgrading to lighter more fuel efficient cars will help our roads last longer.

I tend to agree on Plonkee. I think it depends on what type of home improvements/ repairs we are talking about. I personally run a home improvement/repair fund that gets $100 a month. It slows down my debt repayment, but it also has a targeted rainy day fund just for the house. When the repair issue...

Also dig around on-line. You may find there's a ready made template for the design you need, then it can be as simple as learning how to customize the template with data entry and graphics. There are designs avaible for just about everything, but if you looking for programmatic changes to everything...

The Dryel kit does include a stain remover, but it really only works on light stains. Like others have said, I found the Dryel to be more of a clothing refreasher then really a cleaner, but use it as a good way to reduce the number of trips to the dry cleaner. Though like Brad, I find I often will b...

No I did not have any issues moving back into the public sector. Though admittedly I believe that had more of my own doing then anything else. I work in IT and the same sigma can apply. Mostly it's along the lines of public IT folks being too far out of date of current technologies. But instead I fo...
