I don't know what I'd do without a box cutter or at least a scissors, and while it's probably not the suggestion you're looking for, it's certainly something to make sure you have on hand.

I don't understand how paying off old debts would have hurt your FICO score. Certainly if you were doing something good it should not hurt your score.

Perhaps I'm missing something here

$29 on the nose, somehow. All gone now except for the $10 in quarters. Was a good weekend, money well spent IMO. Get paid on Friday - slightly less than normal, because I only had 30 hours one week. I will make up for it at the end of the month where I have 11.5 hours of overtime, which means an ext...

Parents aren't paying for car stuff anymore, saying that I need to be more independent. It's okay, I suppose; not the end of the world. It'll put a damper on everything of course but I'm not too beat up about it. On a side note, going to cash in all my change today after work - I think I have about ...

Have you thought about taking over their mortgage payments while you save up the money? Not exactly sure what sort of complications might arise from this though...

Living in a house of two dudes, I can tell you that we don't even use up the small freezer. That being said, your eating/shopping habits may be different than ours. I wanted to get a freezer so we could get a quarter cow, but we passed on it because it just wasn't worth the money for us, if the smal...

Edi, Don't stress. I do think you should really evaluate whether it is more important to have savings in the bank in case something goes wrong or a prepaid mortgage. For now, while you're building up your house and furniture, you should probably just pay the mortgage as it is, and once you feel mor...

I'm going to talk to my mom about it this week - she had mentioned that they'd send money my way but they didn't; part of it is probably just because we said bye in a rush, and that would have been the time my parents would have given me money.

Ugh. Car troubles. +$110 or so onto the credit card; would have paid it with cash but I didn't have enough in my checking account and I couldn't transfer money between my accounts at the time. On the bright side, went back for a family reuinion and got loaded up with groceries and leftovers. It was ...

Well if it's a matter of luck, cross that bridge when you get there, IMO.

I still am wondering how you spend $30/month on food. =)

I have no input at this very moment other than to ask: How do you only spend $30/month on food? Edit: Alright, after reading the whole post, I'd have to agree that I'd pay off your student loans first. When you say that you 'need' a car in order to get to a summer internship, what does 'need' really...

FWIW one of the things I've read that people hate most about where they live is their commute to work. I don't recall where I heard that, it was a survey of some sort and since I can't quote it, it doesn't exactly hold any water, so take it with a grain of salt. IMO I'd much rather commute 4 miles t...

Trimmed my cell phone bill from $65/month to about $40/month; this month, because of some weird fluke with my prorated charges, my bill is under $30 - I'm a fan. Also am putting in about 11 hours of overtime this week which makes up for working only 30 hours last week, and then some. Gotta love time...

I haven't had a 'real job', but I lived in a small city of about 14000 when I was growing up and in high school I could walk to work. It was great, no gas expenses so long as the weather was nice. It sucked having to drive much of anywhere though, like into the city. I went to school there for one s...
