I am sure some of you have seen other threads by me. Thanks in large to input from this site, I have come to the realization that my early retirement goal needed revised with better planning. But this thread is more about staying the course when the market is struggling. I am heavily invested in sto...

Thank you both for your replies. I am definitely coming to the conclusion that I am going to have to delay retirement at least a few years. However, as I am mulling over what to invest in via a taxable account, my wife is sending me quotes from RBS. "Sell everything except high quality bonds,&q...

Most financial planners recommend 3 to 6 months of EXPENSES in an emergency fund, not 3 to 6 months of your pay.

Personally I would save until I had 3 months expenses in an EF, then start contributing to the Roth.

It has been almost 18 months since I posted on here, and I regret to say I haven’t taken much action since my last visit. Although I will suggest to my wife we need to come up with a plan, the conversation never takes place. It is pretty much left up to me, and I let analysis paralysis deter me from...

Congratulations Samantha. Have you met with an advisor yet about your retirement goals? My wife and I also hope to retire early, but right now almost all of our money is in tax advantage accounts (401k & Roths). Had I found this website at an earlier age, I would have came to the realization tha...

You're doing great Samantha!!

We also did the eBay/Garage Sale thing to bring in some extra money to go toward the mortgage. But like you said, it is a lot of work!

Have you ever actually looked at your credit score to see if your method works? I have 4 cards and my score is in excess of 800. I am sure it works. I post on another forum that I dont want to link here. Just search for fico forum and it should come out. Even on the other forum you will find someon...

I have even had a person ask when I graduated wiggling around the age discrimination question. It is not wiggling around if it was in fact age discrimination. Do you know if they hired a much younger, less experienced individual for the job you applied? A quote from a HR professional answering a qu...

Vintek, your understanding is basically correct. I would view it more as supplemental income while we work part time or seasonal jobs. One of the issues I have to deal with is that my wife and I don't share the same level of risk tolerance. My tolerance is much higher than hers. We attempted to buy ...

Thanks again Vintek for sharing your knowledge. The more I post the more I realize I need to digest what I am reading before I share my thoughts. The REITs entered my mind for diversification in my tax deferred accounts. Considering I have an aggressive approach and 15 years until I can access those...

I have 40k in liquid cash or "emergency fund" if you will, and the other 5k is in Betterment with monthly contributions. I hope to increase my investments moving forward. Your emergency fund is 2 years worth of your income. You really need to reduce that and get some of that money into a ...

"0% money is nice if you can get it" 3) I actually work in the credit card industry - Why do you think we offer 0% interest? Because we love ya? No. It is because easy money is easily spent. 18 months from now a good percentage those availing themselves of our 0% deal will be paying us in...

I linked my Fidelity account to my Mint account... been on Fidelity's website maybe three or four times since. I check my mint daily. Gives you a nice little graph of how your funds have grown (hopefully). I only have one investment account, but I think on mint you can see each account individually...
