Before I ask the question let me preface and say that I know that this is generally regarded as a bad idea. Please read my entire post. I am open to any and all advice. I am not committed to the course of action I am talking about but I may need to be talked down off the ledge. My 401k from a previo...

Alright. I have the 401k information in front of me. All of this reads like greek. The plan is managed by Argent Financial Group. If that matters to anyone... It looks as though we have the option of playing a range of All Bonds to All Stock. There are Large Cap Stocks, Small & Mid Cap Stocks, I...

I suppose moderate to high risk. We are young... Wouldnt this be a good time to take that risk? Another question... My wife and I are doing a modified Dave Ramsey approach. I know there are a lot of differing opinions on his methods and general advice. I'm not looking for a discussion on that. Dave ...

Risk level?

Is that someone in the provided information or is that something that we decide as far as where we stand?

That sucks. I am not great with confrontation myself. I will beat around the bush and mention it nicely, but never truley confront it has I should. I think it is very inconsiderate for him to bring someone in to use your resources when he is unable to cover his portion. Be direct. Be very honest. If...

I feel kind of whiney or narcissistic with these posts. Maybe that's part of the initial process. Getting over myself and posting the ugly details. The accountability factor is huge, but accountability is only worth what I put into it. I almost didn't post that I had charged something on the card. I...

Mint is great. I'm a fan of a simple spreadsheet. I try and update once a week. I gotta say that I have a very short attention span. So if I make my system too complicated I get frustrated or bored. Find what works for you. The first step is going to be taking the time and focusing on laying a found...

You need to find a way to make savings for retirement concrete to your wife. Does she want to eat ramen while you're traveling in retirement becase you saved and she didn't? If so, that's fine, but I have a feeling mama wouldn't be happy with that. What does she want to do if she does choose to ret...

Ok.... So last month sucked. We blew the budget to shreds. Personally I am stepping back and retooling a few things. While I get all giddy working with numbers and the thought of paying off debt and early retirement those things don't work for H. She likes the idea but saving for retirement is so ab...

Have you ever rented property out before? There is potentially a lot more involved than you may be considering. Will you be living in the same area and be able to manage it or will you need to hire someone to manage the property for you? You may even want to do that if you are still in the area. My ...

Give her a monthly allowance and transfer it to her own checking account. When the debit card is declined, that's it until next month. Show her how to check balance on her mobile so she's not embarrassed at the spa. Maybe I'm just disagreeing over a word, but the idea of giving one's spouse an allo...

My wife and I are very much the same. Well we at least share the differing finances of you and your spouse but not the foundation. H likes to spend. She's an emotional spender in addition to the fact that she just enjoys the feel of "new" things. Thank goodness she doesn't have expensive t...

I'm with kombat. I currently have no investments so this is all opinion based on theory. Why should I be taxed on my increase of funds that have already been taxed? Feels a bit like double dipping. I'm also into the idea of "flat" tax. That just makes more sense to me than the differing br...
