Nah. My grocery budget for myself was about $150 for a long time, and I have the past written budgets to prove it.

A lot of people find the Not So Big House books really valuable for this sort of thing. They kind of drive me nuts -- I think my house is humongous, but the "not so big" houses are much bigger -- but Susanka does have a lot of very smart things to say about using space. I've known at least...

Yikes, okay, so I went a little overboard this month with the debt payments, and wasn't realistic about where our spending would be. Our emergency fund (and only cash, really) is normally kept at at minimum of $6K, but it's now at $4700, with 6 days to go till the next paycheck. Whoops. I really ne...

Wow. I totally didn't get expected to get slammed like that. I thought the point of this thread was when does quality count over price? Ruggy is being a jerk. Ignore him. You do not need to justify your spending. I am in total agreement of the value of buying skin products that don't make your skin...

Mine went down a lot right after I bought the house. Which is weird. The tax valuation people have a purchase price to go on, but the taxes are based on a price $40k less. I'd be nervous if I weren't planning to stay there, really happy with the area's prospects, and checking my FHA appraisal whenev...

ESPP's normally have a hold period, plus they do not necessarily buy the stock immediately. However, they are generally a good deal, since you get the stock at a discount. Many pay x% and you pay the remainder% of the stock price. Hmm, all the ESPP's I've ever been eligible for were "you can s...

When you say that you can't sell within a certain period of time, do you mean you can't sell, or that you don't get a tax break? Even with the higher taxes of selling before it is a qualifying sale, you can still make a profit as long as the stock doesn't plummet between the time the ESPP period clo...

Feel free! I would also suggest a glitter pen!

And this is why I'm beginning to think that one *should* choose a profession based heavily on income. Yes, they should be proficient at it, and enjoy it somewhat, but I'd rather take a job I only enjoy 'somewhat' and that I'm 'pretty good at' and be able to pay my bills with ease (and have savings ...

Actually demonstrating the value of saving and delayed gratification is probably helpful. That is my theory, anyway. I gave my niece a certificate of deposit when she was ten. It's a two-year CD, funded before the meltdown, so the interest rate is 5% or higher (I don't remember excactly). Her mom ch...

4,000/mo is GREAT. I remember how satisfying it was to put 2,000/mo towards my down payment.

DINK...wait. Does this mean I am a SINK?
