 Forum: Personal Finance   Topic: Money or happiness (short term)

This is not a question for advice, but rather a poll-ish question. If I had a choice between a job with more money and being miserable, vs less money and being happy, of course I would choose the latter in the long-term. What about the short term (1 year)? How much money would it take for you to sta...

Academia is ridiculously corrupt and political. Grad students and PhD candidates are frequently treated like indentured servants for 5+ years. I know a person whose professor pays her employees more by giving them extra titles in order to keep them. Golden handcuffs. The rules don't make any sense, ...

If you hate your job and co-workers, find a new job. Change is hard, but not harder than hating your job every day. I'm pretty sure that stress and anger will shorten your life so your supposed early retirement will be shorter too, and the road there will be painful instead of enjoyable. This is not...

Is 11k your 6 mo emergency fund? If not, pay it off. Otherwise, pay it off ASAP.

Sorry for continuing the thread hijack, but I gotta chime in on these tax comparisons. Sure, Finland has a progressive tax system. Finland has much more government run programs than the US. The difference is that they are actually very effective in the health and education fields, offering some of t...

I go "sweet" and then buy whatever I was saving up for or calculate a statistic and chart it. Awesome.

Unfortunately, I don't have much to celebrate this year, my spending went up 33% :(

Stupid healthcare and moving :(

It's strange times in the car market right now. Used cars may cost more than buying new . . Did you actually read the article you linked? All the loans, new and used, are for five years. All used-car loans are figured at the average used-car rate of 7.7%. (There are no incentives.) Each new-car loa...

I was a recent grad about 4 years ago. I also had the urge to buy things, things that I actually did enjoy and continue to enjoy today. But 1700 a month is too much, in my opinion. 4000 - 509 (monthly fixed) - 1600 (savings/retirement) - 200 (just lunch money... probably overestimating) = $1691 blow...

Asking a forum, any forum, about the future of a single stock is ludicrous. It is kind of entertaining, though. I invite you to ask that question here: http://bogleheads.org They will show you the way. If you refuse the smart way or if you just want to gamble, you can always ask here: http://www.fat...

13k in socal is reasonable for a college student. You can absolutely cut your food budget in half, though. You are living comfortably, but shaving off expenses to save 1-2k a year is ludicrous in this conversation since you are accruing 250k in debt anyway. Good school does not equal earning power. ...

Sell the car yourself, you get all the money and way more than what the dealer will give you for a trade-in.

You do know that you can set all these things up to autopay the balance due, right?

I autopay my internet and phone bill, that's about it.
