I think there is a lot of room to reduce your costs. Unfortunately, I think that you are going to have to reduce your lifestyle for some time to pay off this bill. While the computer may be a tax write off, are you self-employed? If not, I would consider getting rid of it. Reevaluate your cell usage...

This is a terribly interesting topic... Something else to consider is to broaden your horizons even further... Perhaps since you are likely making a tidy sum of money with a doctorate and are mobile, bank most of your paycheck for a couple of year, move to a country with a low cost of living, and pa...

Wow! I *think* you already know what you should do. CHANGE CAREERS! My wife and I worked jobs that demanded 60+ hours of our week and now work 40 hrs and 10 hrs respectively. Our income was cut by 40% and you know what? Nothing happened... Our family didn't disown us, our friends didn't stop talking...

I strongly recommend this book: http://www.worldscheapestdestinations.com/

Also, I haven't gotten into this yet but it's a New Year's resolution, frequent flyer mile programs: http://www.vimeo.com/7167640

Combine those and you have an inexpensive vacation.

You can't beat Vanguard or Schwab funds if you ask me or Schwab no fee ETFs if you want to go that route. But I would also consider taking a step back and getting a handle on your financial goals. I know you talked about a house and that's great but I if you had a greater understanding of your goals...

First, I have no medical advice. Second, here is an article with some information you might find helpful: http://www.fool.com/personal-finance/general/2007/12/11/ppo-hmo-hsa-omg.aspx Third, consider talking to your doctor, or perhaps you already have, since you have a chronic stomach problem about w...

Being there for your friends and family emotionally and materially is a balancing act but paying for a luxury like a cell phone isn't charity. I would strongly consider not spending an additional dollar on this person.

It's important to read people with different personal finance views both for motivation and to learn new things. I have found with Bach particularly that skimming is the way to go! Bach is verbose and writes a painful number of illustrations. With that said, he makes a good point from time to time. ...

Well, if there is a year to get the drawing names thing to work... it's this one with the economy the way it is. Also, is there a dollar limit? If the gifts are small sometimes it's manageable. Also, I would request practical gifts for yourself. If you end up spending X dollars but receive it back i...

Can't say enough about the Schwab investor checking. You get a decent interest rate plus depending on where you live there is a bricks and mortar investment bank. The customer is great and within the US if you call an 800 number. Also, you can streamline your finances by doing your investments with ...

Unlike what some others would say, I'm wondering why you have such a large emergency fund? At your stage in life (not that far from mine), chances are your monthly expenses are minimal or could be if they had to be. Unless you have significant monthly costs or you are in a job that may or may not be...
