And I have one more good one. I offer to do free computer recycling on craigslit. Because many recylcers ask you to pay and I offer free pick up (sometimes I even pay them!), folks give me their dead computers all the time. I rebuild the ones I can and then give/trade/sell the rest to a computer rec...

I dumped my cell phone and got free service using WiFi and some free apps. I picked up a cheap Android smartphone for $20 from a friend (you can get them for $30-35 on Craigslist). I then installed (and signed up for) Google Voice and then GrooveIP*. Google provides a free phone number in my area co...

If you have reliable income and can get a budget together and stick to it you may want to investigate if your car (and other) insurance gives a discount if you pay in six-month lumps. The great thing about being organized is that big but predictable bills aren't so scary and the numbers work out (so...

This is all awesome stuff, thank you. Also, I'm thankful for the comment about insurance, that had not crossed my mind at all! I will contact my agent and ask. Back to the more general question, if the answer is working while we travel it makes me wonder if there are any good portable business ideas...

I am in IT by trade, recent and current employment qualifies me to perform System Administration, Help Desk, PC repair, desktop and mobile device support and more. I suppose I could do some basic PC work wherever I happen to be. I wonder if competition is stiffer in bigger cities--but finding that o...

You could supplement a financial health book with a book on making money on Ebay/Craigslist or study material for a profesional certification (for example, in the IT world an A+ test is <$200 and you can self-study, a Microsoft test shouldn't be too much more, but I don't think there are any general...

In about one year I expect to be jobless for about a year (on purpose). Currently my wife and I are saving at a rate of about $2,000/month and have a little over 30,000 in liquid cash to play with. We have invested a roughly equal sum in mutual funds and bonds and have a few smaller investments. We ...

I overreacted VinTek, quite frankly, I was visiting this site while in panic mode about something else and read into your statement too much. I apologize, frankly in retrospect, I was an ass. Here's a couple more interesting articles. I suppose your criticisms of my statements make sense (and will a...

I've read a thousand articles to the contrary, there are many ways of measuring the success or failure of this investment. I honestly find your comment extremely incendiary, I am extremely well-read on the topic. Furthermore, my statement was pretty mild and absolutely, irrefutably true. I spoke of ...

I'm thinking about taking a few classes and expanding my skill set. One thing I'm sure of, I would rather have a job I love than a good pay check.

Thanks for all the good replies. I will internalize it and respond appropriately soon.

I recently have felt very lost. I'm a computer repair tech, but I've hated the tech jobs I've had--not because of the technical component, but other aspects. I even semi-successfully ran my own business for a while, but hated it too! I was not good at it, I have trouble saying no to unreasonable req...

I do not necessarily agree. From a purely monetary point of view, college is a high risk investment with no guarantees, the payoff often does not offset the cost, especially if one is investing money that would have gone into college. Another option, especially because you already have a year of cre...
