Ok, I will try to answer a few of the questions: 1) I do not want to pursue anything related to the short sales which includes anything that causes me to sell for less than I owe. This isn't so much a moral decision as a practical one. I talked to a couple lenders about my situation, and seeing I ca...

Let me put my question right up front and then I will fill in the details: To sell my house I am going to need to bring 10k-15k to the table, I don't have that right now, but I could feasibly save enough by next spring/summer. Seeing I can have trouble having large chunks of cash and not spending so...

So the part for my furnace came in last night, just finished installing it this morning, and as soon as I threw the power back on to the furnace it roared back into service! I am very excited, ended up spending $89 for a repair guy to come out twice and tell me what the actual problem was and then I...

Well I am feeling a bit better today. Finding out the furnace was broken and that I would probably have to replace it was the straw that broke my back. However when I got home last night, I decided I was going to figure something out, figured since the furnace was probably done with anyways, I tore ...

Very long time with no update. Been a very frustrating time. Remember how I said every time I pay off my credit cards, something comes up to put us back in debt? Well that same thing is coming back in a big way right now, I am fighting for all I am worth and just not seeing an end: 1) My wife has be...

Some updates: 1) Bills are coming in from when my wife was in the hospital, its looking like the stay cost about $1,000. I have the money to cover it, but it would wipe out my current emergency fund, I am going to call today and setup a payment plan with them, I intend to pay it back quickly, but I ...

A promotion that is "only 10%" is rarely "only 10%" in my experience, for example, if you were to try and get a position at another company it looks very good that you were promoted from within (I am assuming this is an internal promotion, it sounded like one), and shows you were...

I have been through some tough interviews myself (worst one was 13 separate interviews over the course of 2 weeks). You have gotten this far in the process because you are a good candidate, take a couple minutes, clear your mind, and focus on the questionnaire. If you have made it this far in the pr...

Never mind, I did a quick Google search for ING sub accounts and a GRS article was right at the top :D

In short you open multiple savings accounts.

Question for you guys, I have heard people talk about setting up ING sub accounts here quite a bit, but I don't see how to do it in my ING account. I just have a standard ING savings account, is it something I can setup in there or are you setting up more than one savings account with ING and using ...

We are intending to celebrate, we are planning on going to our local farmers market and pickup something fun to make for over the 4th, we usually have a small get together with our friends then go downtown to see the fireworks. So in other news, I setup my ING savings to automatically pull $250 ever...

So I got a surprise when I got home last night. Sitting in the mail was a check for $2400 for the one side project I billed out a bit ago. This is from a client that I expect to take 6 months to pay, and I didn't do any prompting or anything and had it in about a month and a half. Deposited the chec...

I have been getting into geocaching this summer, fun hobby, cheap too. I live in the city and long to live back out in the country again, geocaching has been great because I am finding more and more places in the city that are in the middle of nowhere that I would have never realized was there. I ha...

I wanted to post a quick update. My wife has been going to about 3 doctor visits a week since she got out of the hospital (with three different specialists) and they have decided that a surgery will be the way to go to correct her medical issue, so we are scheduling the surgery for sometime in the n...
