Hi guys. I've been looking at houses for the last two months down in South Florida where I live. Prices seem to continue to be headed down for a little while. My real estate agent is all hot and heavy about the 8,000 dollar home buyer credit and I think it's creating artificial excitement in the hou...

Hi guys. I have a question. I'm considering purchasing a new home ~$220k, and for reasons that I can't fully get into I must put 20% down (44k) on it. I would have loved to put 20% down, but in order to do it I would be completely wiped out after closing costs (~$50k) and I'm anxious about owning my...

Well it's been almost 6 months, but I'm finally getting to update things. We're still working through things with Dad's estate, but hopefully that will be over in the coming months. I'm considering buying a house so that may be a big change, we'll see. I also got a raise today Assets: Roth: $10,675....

Moving Tuesday or Wednesday, and I'm still in crisis mode. I need to get a suit tailored for an interview, shut everything off, forward everything and get everything into my car before then. This should be interesting. Here's what I know at a glance about this month. Savings 4,900k CC due in a few d...

There's also something to be said for the sustainability of behaving in the way you describe. The time as money paradigm is a bit too simplistic. That said, I'd just buy a new one. :)

I have everything automatically hit my credit card, and then review at the end of the month. Exceptions are my rent (bill pay check mailed the 25th of every month), student loan (ACHed every 28th), and my credit card bill (ACHed every 11th). I automate processes professionally so I suppose it only m...

$4.099 /gal in Southwest Michigan, Lower in Indiana, and Ohio. I presume we have a slightly higher fuel tax, which would make sense, our roads tend to freeze and thaw frequently during the winter. It makes driving on them hell.
