It's all about priorities, what you feel is most important. Currently, my biggest single saving goal is for a down payment on a home (I'm aiming for at least 50%). After that, it's retirement savings (approximately half of the home savings). How did I decide to save more for the home instead of sock...

My take on prenups is a bit different. Let’s say that the relationship for some reason goes down the tubes. Why would anyone feel entitled to the other person’s savings and property that was obtained before they were married? They surely benefitted from the property (free place to live, yey), saving...

This is a question I have pondered myself. I don't have kids, nor do I intend to have any, but I am still curious about the financial implication of having children. I asked the same question once on a forum. I got about 13 replies and not a single one could give any kind of numbers or even estimate...

A few years back MLM was very popular around here, or rather people were trying to get you into it all the time. I dealt with some of them personally and this is what I learned. - Most people will probably tell you to not even agree to a meeting but if it’s a friend it might be tough. You might also...

I am not sure I correctly understand all the terms you used there so I will just explain my method. I budget everything. I have a detailed budget for each month written out that covers the whole year of 2011. I often use a credit card for budgeted purchases I find on sale for a limited period. For e...

I don't agree that one should do it, as I personally find it immoral. I am not even sure that option exists here in Finland. If you have debt, you won't get away from it until you die, after which they take what you own (so technically, death is not a way out either as the debt must be repaid either...

As income levels here are lower than in the US, giving exact dollar amounts wouldn't help. However, as I write down everything I buy I can calculate how much I spend relative to my net income. In 2010 I spent 6,7% of my total net income on food. That did not, however, include all items in my grocery...

I don't have any kids myself, nor am I planning on getting any, so I may be way off base here but I'll give you my 2 cents anyway. It seems to me that having a kid is more about budgeting monthly expenses than it is about saving a set amount. Sure you will need something of a "startup kit"...

If you only own two stocks, I'd sell and reinvest in other stocks so my portfolio would be more diversified. By selling, do you mean selling my initial investment ($500) in each stock and reinvesting it in something else? Or selling the entire stock? If you sold the entire investment you wouldn't b...

I’ve actually done some calculations on this. However, to do so I had to look at the entire financial picture over the course of my lifetime. The ultimate goal for me was to have a secure retirement when I get to that age. When my grandfather died at the age of 95 I told everyone that I’d “beat” him...

If you only own two stocks, I'd sell and reinvest in other stocks so my portfolio would be more diversified. P.S Wow, you guys in the US really pay low taxes. Here in Finland we pay 28% capital gains taxes on everything, even on savings accounts that you only made 5 bucks on. AND there are plans to ...

"...I will say however, that everyone should do themselves a huge favor and get out of the “something-for-nothing" mentality, and the quicker the better..." Couldn't one argue that your uncle used the same kind of logic? He didn't do anything and therefore won, i.e- got something for...

I expect inflation to take care of any raise I get. Over the past six months the cost of groceries have gone up several percent. This trnd is expected to continue in 2011. Gas prices will go up a couple of percent as well. Capital gains taxes will also most likely go up (about 2 percentage points) s...
