I hope his parents don't do anything to block this. They don't precisely approve of our decision to relocate. Maybe it will slip your mind that your husband is looking to cash it in? lol, H needs their information to do it, unfortunately, since it was set up as a custodial account while he was a mi...

Just a quick update that APPARENTLY, I have my tax withholdings wrong. We filed our taxes last night, and we're getting almost $5k back! Normally, I'd be very annoyed with myself for giving such a large interest free loan to the government, but this is an awesome surprise. Straight into dp savings w...

The internet is filled with a million resources, but I trust people here to steer me in the right direction. What are the best resources to learning all about what I need to know to buy a house? I firmly believe you can never be too educated when it comes to spending many thousands of dollars. I'm s...

2014 is off to a great start! H and I took part in a January spending freeze. No extraneous spending. It worked really well! My CC bill was $400 less than normal. Part of this is due to H being gone for two weeks and me being gone for 1 week, so no need for groceries, but the rest is due to the VERY...

With regards to the woman, I do feel that it is not particularly fair to take the approach of 'if the doesn't have a problem then its ok', because it is not professional or fair that he did it. Yet, if she had done a similar thing to him I am not sure whether the same things would be said. What get...

I don't know about fax machines. The fact that such a (now) useless piece of technology has held on for so long makes me wonder if it will ever die. Between being able to scan signed documents to send via email, and using digital signatures in place of hand-signed documents, there's no reason to us...

Do you have a crockpot? When we're crazy busy, I love my crock pot. Only one dish to wash, and dinner is ready when you get home. The easiest thing in the world is salsa chicken. A couple frozen chicken breasts + jar of salsa in the crockpot and tortilla shells in the fridge makes an amazing quick d...

Happy birthday! My vacation planning style (lol, all of 2 vacations) is to determine what I want to do, research how much that will cost, and how long it will take to save up the amount I need to have the vacation I want. It works for me. Bless you for vacationing with your ILs. I couldn't imagine s...

I have a deal with my husband that as soon as we can pay cash for it, I'm getting a Tesla. The Tesla showrooms popping up in malls around me have done nothing to curb this. I need to move out of rich people areas.

You are good people for giving away your car to someone in need. :)

Oh! Are you doing the NCL Breakaway? If we weren't moving next year, we had talked about on going on it. I didn't realize how important couples vacations were until we went on our first one this year. I really struggled with it, initially. SO MUCH MONEY that could have paid off one of my loans early...

I disagree with peachy (sorry peachy!) about cutting your retirement savings. If anything, I feel like you are behind in your retirement and should increase that. Gym: can you find a cheaper one? Not give it up entirely, but not necessarily go to the fanciest one. I have lived in several VHCOL areas...

Okay, I've been hiding from here a bit. The past two months have been a financial nightmare. H's pay periods got switched around, and we're having the worst trouble catching up. Combine that with an out-of-state wedding that cost more than anticipated, both cats eating something they shouldn't requi...

Similarly, a really fast way to have meat on hand is rotisserie chickens. I like going to to Whole Foods and buying their 2 for $14 rotisserie birds and then pulling off all the meat and packing it up in baggies for the freezer. I'll then put the carcass in the crockpot and make chicken broth too! ...
