Hi Bluebell. This is coming late, but thought I'd reassure you that I completely agree with your decision and the advice of the other posters. I wouldn't give my notice until I had a formal letter of offer from the new employer. Like you, I'm a bit of a pessimist and there's no way I would jeopardiz...

I agree with Bluebell. It's hard to be happy if you don't have any security.

Sorry, guys. That does suck! In googling around, I found that the show actually hasn't been cancelled. In fact, Gail seems to be doing better than ever as there are now American and British versions of the show. According to the trailer ( http://www.goodtv.com/programs.php?programid=TL ), it's on a ...

I have no problem with people taking mental health days. As people noted, it's part of your compensation package. I tend not to take them though because I'm kind of in a situation like Brad's. I'm solely responsible for getting a certain amount of work done in a certain amount of time and when I'm n...

I agree with those that say that suppressing salary info only works in favour of the employer. While I don't talk about salary info with my friends, I do share it freely with people who are in the same profession as me. All of us can then keep on top of what the different organizations are paying an...

It seems to be off the air now, but there was a show on for a while called Till Debt Do Us Part with a British woman kind of like Super Nanny, except for debt. It was amazing how these people could waste thousands and thousands of dollars every month with basically nothing to show for it. One coupl...

If you’re finding yourself frustrated by disorganization and inattention, then it makes sense to explore every avenue open to you. Medication is not for everyone, but it does help a lot of people. I totally agree with your decision to discontinue meds when they made you feel weird. The side-effects ...

Ah, I feel your pain, JDebler. I have a low threshold for most clutter, but I do have a weakness for books or magazines. I’ve managed to minimize the problem by checking them out of the library when possible. If the library doesn’t have an item, then I will buy it, but I now force myself to cull at ...

The video made for fascinating viewing. Her house is clean, but holy cow is it packed with stuff. There are snow globes, fridge magnets, and picture frames everywhere. A textbook example of pathological consumption, IMO. The end result isn't even desirable. Just looking at that clutter makes me feel...

Hi Rich, I read some of your previous posts and a couple of things struck me. One, you don’t seem to be getting the encouragement and information you need about education/career from your immediate family. Are there any friends or people in your extended family who you admire that you can talk to? I...

Just read up on the TFSA and whoa, it sounds great. I'm absolutely opening one in 2009. Thanks for the tip, canadiandream.

I thought that the recommendation was spending 10% of a windfall. Anyway, I wish I were so lucky as to get $125k though I imagine the only way it could happen for me would be to lose a family member. The articles I’ve read have said 1-2% (one of them was on here, I think), but maybe 10% would be a ...

Btw, I’m relieved to see that no one has balked at my spending $6000 on home furnishings. It is more than the 1-2% people recommend you spend out of a windfall, but then, I don’t think these people have curtains like mine. (In fact, I know they don’t because mine were homemade. And you can really, r...

Thanks for your responses, guys. you might consider saving putting money aside to max out your RRSP for the next year or two (beyond what you're already doing). Is RRSP pre-tax or post-tax? If pre-tax, you can always use the inheritance as spending money and income from work can go to retirement (if...
