emoore, I totally agree with you on the index funds and about what a great opportunity it is for those that do the work. It took me about two years to get comfortable enough to buy individual stocks, and even now 90% of my portfolio is still in index funds, but that 10% does more for me than give me...

I learned by reading stuff online and a bunch of books, but there is a lot to be said about learning by doing. That is what I do at my job right now: write articles that try to get people connecting what they know and love to the stocks behind them. We still have a lot of work to do, but check out W...

My wife has something similar, it's really weird and I told her if we couldn't get a statement every quarter (can you believe it!? They told us we wouldn't get a statement at one point!) then forget it. We'll just do a Roth for her. But as for Trying2Save, you're 45 and your plans for really early r...

Yeah that seems rather high for food. You know what though? I'm also saving for a computer and I've found that selling stuff you don't need is a good start. Books on Amazon or a yard sale can help. And when you have enough dough, check out the Dell Outlet store , you can get some serious bargains on...

I'm a big believer in not letting this kind of stuff affect major life decisions like this.

Then again, it's also important to be aware so it doesn't creep up on you.

Seriously, I hated business when I was in college. I thought it was evil (I was also young and dumb, obviously). Anyway, years later I realized this was stuff I needed to know. So I started reading. Books, blogs, magazines, newspapers—everything I could get my hands on that could give me some insigh...

I write content for this site. The idea is to help people who have no interest at all in the stock market to start thinking about stocks and the companies behind those stocks the way they think about other things they're passionate about. Like sports, gadgets, etc. Some of the stuff on the site may ...

My dad thought of putting panels on the roof of our house years ago when I was young but never did. And this was way back before it was mainstream. I'd love to do something like this but the costs are so prohibitive. It kind of locks you in if you put all that money into it, you'd like to still be t...

I would love to jump on the BofA hate bandwagon, but I've only had good experiences with their customer service reps. Granted, things take a LONG time to get figured out, but the few times I've called them with complaints about charges to my account, they've rectified the situation really quickly. G...

Probably putting it towards a down payment.

Every little bit helps
