Debts: Student Loan $5,667 Credit Card $832 Assets: Cash/Equiv $29,814 There are some points in life where you just have to keep your head down and your mouth shut.

Debts: Student Loan: 5890 Credit Card: 992 Assets: Cash/Equiv: 29,827 So I'm a month into the goals I set for 2009. Here's where I stand. Goal 1: I switched over my accounts so that my 403B is getting the money I had been putting in 401K. This is reducing my taxable income by a pre-tax deduction, as...

I spent the summer doing what most "kids" do. I played. I spent some time at the lake taking sailing lessons (free) I worked out at the local rec center, I spent some quality time with my favorite computer games. I painted my house. I pursued my favorite crafts and spoiled my SO with a few...

Dave, let me suggest HP for scanners. I have been using them for years (I restore & retouch photos) and they have consistently been high-quality. Check out Fry's Electronics - several years ago I purchased a refurbished HP scanner from them at a very reduced price ($50 more or less, if I recall ...

CHB, Congrats on keeping your budget-busters well under control. I read an article last year on MSN Money (by Liz Pulliam Weston) about how a fully stocked pantry is just as important as a fully stocked emergency fund. Having a stock of staples, and the know-how to use them, can go a long way in kee...

What about a video diary about saving money around the home? Things like:

Using a clothes line/laundry line in the summer and good weather.
Container gardening/urban gardening.
Programmable Thermostats & Ceiling Fans.
Xeriscaping and/or landscaping to use less water on your lawn.

Heh. I'm not exactly rich from the windfall, but it is nothing to sneeze at. Nowhere near the kind of money from Parker County, for sure! I'm excited about having a "chunk of change" to invest. My dilemma is how do I reconcile my desire to sit on another nest egg with the desire to dress m...

I own a home that sits on the Barnett Shale natural gas repository. I just signed a lease with one of the top three energy companies, and in about a month, I'm going to get a signing bonus. I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment, but I'm grateful that I have a lot of time to make a plan for what to ...

knikki, I use the "backwards hanger" method and it works wonders. I always know which clothes can be safely donated to charity (or taken to consignment if they're in top shape) at the end of every season. My goal has been to narrow my wardrobe down to the things I wear and need, so I have ...
