Hello... I've changed a few things around. My credit union finally got one of those super-high interest rate accounts, so now, I'm getting 4% on my checking account! And, I've analyzed my spending on Mint in a little more detail. Do any of you have suggestions that can decrease reliance on eating ou...

Honestly, I don't remember. Probably 1099s, because it isn't W2s. I'm certain of this. I gave my folder of last year's stuff to my mom to put away in the middle of her boxes of paperwork.

When you pay back your student loans, I sincerely hope you will be contributing more than the minimum. That being said, even if you aren't, I would practice budgeting for the total minimum payment after the grace period on the other student loans in December to begin paying off the private loans. It...

My taxes are a strange beast. While it is a "salary" for me, it is actually a grad. student stipend, and so I don't get taxes deducted from every paycheck. Nor do I get Social Security deducted either, and so I am technically not contributing to that either. It's very interesting -- the sc...

The grad. school stipend is strange --- it's not a typical stipend, so it gets taxed differently than a "salary." The person I went to for taxes last year said I had to pay state, but not federal. But somebody else (with the same stipend) going to a different person for taxes said they had...

My student loan interest rates are: $7483.71 at 4.75% $11000.00 at 6.8% I thought about opening an ING account because the subaccount idea is a good one, but for the meanwhile, I am going to just add the savings on top. I'll keep you posted with how I'm doing. I haven't decided completely where I'm ...

A $25,000 dollar salary is $2083 a month. 1. I live in a part of the US where rents are not too much for a small apartment -- I paid $665 a month for my 1 bedroom 1 bath, including utilities. This leaves me about $1400 for the rest of the stuff in a month. 2. I am paying back 2 student loans for my ...

Ok.. so I got my first job last year out of college, and I'm getting $25,000 per year. After looking over my finances precisely a year later, I have managed to increase my net worth by about $6000! That's almost 1/4 of my income!!!

Yay! :D
