 Forum: Personal Finance   Topic: How Low Does Your Checking Account Get?

I have managed to align all of my bills (except my mortgage) so that they are all due the same week which conveniently is just after my mid-month paycheck. This allows me to run my working checking and saving accounts as low as $20 per account without worry. The vast majority of my day-to-day expens...

I would have to concur with brad. I have been in the IT field for almost 20 years and worked for 8 companies in that time. With only 1 exception early in my career, every job change was to a very different aspect in the IT field. The fact that I landed all of the other positions came as quite a supr...

My emergency fund, begun about one and a half years ago now stands at about 5 1/2 months of basic living expenses. I would have reached my initial goal of 6 months of expenses, but a few months back I shifted a lot of my extra cash into my 401k. I figure that right now would be a good time to buyup ...

what's wrong with those questions Well, I hate that question when it comes from a potential employer. Well of course you are going to say you want to move up in the company. I mean what are you supposed to say - I hope to have enough so I can retire from this job? I want to be on the beach drinking...

"What is your financial goal?" Recently at work I had to deal with yet more corporate world screwiness when asked to complete my yearly "development plan" for the next year. When reviewing the garbage document I threw together to get my boss off my back he asked me one of those t...

I agree with DebtFreeCrusader, but I broke my time lines down a lot more. For example, immediate demands, demands on my next paycheck, next month, next quarter, next six months, next year, 5 years, etc. It also helped me to determine "philosophical" goals, assign relative priorities to the...

Good job! This year I got back over $6,000 which I quickly stuffed into my emergency fund before I got a chance to blow it. Two days later I learned that I am going to have to take a 5% cut in pay for 2009. The security of knowing that I had that difference covered was worth far more than any toy I ...

I've heard from a number of online sources that Capitol One is jacking up their rates now. Personally, I haven't even got a clue what my interest rate is since I have never carried a balance on this card and I never will. I use my CapOne visa for almost every purchase for the 1% cash back. In my cas...

Greetings from Portland! If it is any extra incentive, Oregon is a fantastic place to live, particularly the Portland area. I moved here just over a decade ago from NYC and still love the huge variety of outdoor activities within easy reach. From coastal to mountain to desert are all within reasonab...

This evening I was reviewing the spreadsheet I created to track all of my accounts and stumbled across a very interesting discovery. Viewing a graph of the cumulative total balance of all my accounts, I found myself becoming a little disappointed and impatient at my slow, chaotic, upward savings pro...

Congratulations!!!! 8) When my debt (besides my mortgage) was paid off and my emergency fund could be rated by how long it would support me in months as versus hours, I began to take a very different look at life and the world around me. No longer do I only plan my future for the next paycheck cycle...

Late last year I found myself in quite a scary situation. My marriage had hit the rocks, I found that we had far more unsecured debt than I could have imagined with no savings to fall back on; there was a strong possibility that my job was going to be moved off-shore and the resale value of the hous...
