Congratulations! Not having consumer debt is a very big achievement, one that many people (including myself) would love to have. Especially with the baby on the way, I would sock away any money you can into an emergency fund until you have your six months of expenses. Once that is set up then you ca...

Reading this makes me wish I would have taken that engineering job out of school instead of going to grad school :D That being said, the advice given here is good and pretty straight forward. Get an emergency fund up of ~6 months expenses, and then start paying down any debt you have left. Getting a...

A couple of critiques from someone whose financial house is not in as good shape as yours, and also 15 years younger. Based on your "how are we doing thread" I don't know why you would even need to take advantage of this offer. Instead of taking advantage of this offer you could simply sav...

Just one thing I'm posting here that I feel is very important, which I also posted in your other thread: Your emergency fund should be for emergencies!!! You said you've depleted about a third of your EF for a vacation and home improvement, those are not emergencies! As I see it even at 20k you stil...

Hello all, Though I have both of these accounts, ING DIrect is offering at total of $207 dollars for opening an Electric Orange Checking and making 5 debit card purchases ($107 dollars) and opening a Sharebuilder account and making two trades. For Sharebuilder, the trads are 9.95 a piece. So I would...

I'm a Michigan engineer too (environmental/water resources)! There could be some interesting case studies in the class, and its enjoyability would likely be based on the quality of the professor. However, as for preparation for your professional career, you might get more out of another business or ...

I would say it is fine to work this hard, as long as you are enjoying life. However, how are the rest of your finances? Is your university expensive, do you take out student loans, have enough for an apartment, etc. etc.? If the rest of your finances are in place, then I say it's not a problem getti...

The account has to be open for 5 years before you can make withdrawals without penalties (even withdrawals from contributions/priciple). I'm pretty sure that's not true: You do not include in gross income any part of a distribution from a qualified retirement plan that is a return of contributions ...

I'm only 23, but in my life I have already seen two boom and bust cycles play out (the .com and "housing" bubbles). Looking at the market trends from the last 15 years, I have to wonder, is compounding interest still relevant? The S&P 500 is at the same level these days as it was in th...

I don't see anything wrong with maxing off your contributions. In the long run, the difference in the market over the next 8 months probably will not make that much of a difference. Why did you go with the STAR account? I have one, but that's because I'm a lowly college student and can't afford the ...
