The thing I like the very least about the new forum is the way it decides what threads have new posts. I don't read every post in every forum section I go through and read the ones that I find interesting, and it used to be that I'd log in and see 7 threads at the top with "new posts" so I...

Hi Everyone. I guess this post would be more appropriate for Suze Orman's can i afford it segment. But since i will most likely not end up on the show, I need some advice. I have learned a lot on this website so far, so thank you in advance. I currently live in a 550 sq ft studio for 915/mo (covere...

Doing your taxes manually (i.e. without software) is really not that difficult for a majority of people. If you can have some software ask you questions to fill it out you can do the same thing by reading the instructions sheet the IRS provides with the 1040. Go here near the bottom there are common...

South Dakota has a very low cost of living, and no state income tax. Iowa and Minnesota would be good options too, I believe both of them pay their teachers better than South Dakota, and both have strong school systems.

What are your monthly costs and income? First home loan pmt, second home loan pmt, net income /month, bills/groceries/etc..? 20k is about 8 months worth of expenses for me and I only owe 35% of what you do on my house, but I do have student loans, and a car loan as well. Without any more info my ini...

This is a valid concern. I know that a lot of dealers are still trying to sell the Prius with a "market adjustment" added to the sticker price. I think you'll just have to shop around and do the calculations when you get some real-world numbers. Tim I've also read that this is happening w...

This covers some basics on Roth IRA's. I personally opened mine at T Rowe Price because if you sign up for $50 monthly automatic transfers you can open your Roth IRA with no minimum.

I did forget to mention that we drive mostly highway miles, at least right now. At least from my perspective - the highway is a mile from our house, then my office is a block off the highway at the other end. However my wife takes surface streets an additional 10 minutes to her workplace. Even so, ...

I'm going to vote for the Fit, but I may be a little biased. One feature the Fit has that the others seem to be lacking is cargo capacity. Specifically I'm thinking that if you need to buy a few studs or some other lumber for projects you can fit quite a lot in the Fit. I've hauled 20+ 8' studs by l...

I believe I would have to mimic what my parents did for me. I paid for almost all of my college education. My dad was able to loan me a car for a month when mine broke down this allowed me to get to and from work. My mom paid my health insurance, cell phone bill, and car insurance, and I paid her ab...

You mention that your cars are paid off, but you don't mention if you're saving up to be able to purchase your next car(s) out of savings versus taking out another loan. It's very hard for us to give suggestions as to where you should put the 10k without knowing what you have in savings, emergency f...

Getting started can be frustrating, but you've already made up your mind that you need to change your habits, that's a great first step. Here are some of my thoughts looking over your expenses; 1. Storage, $45/month to put stuff in a garage that you don't use. Time for a garage sale, you can make a ...
