Thanks to both of you for your replies. Doinghomework, I like your suggestion - though, since we do feel a little like we are 'catching up' (recognizing we should have done this several years ago, when we started to have the savings for IRAs), there's also a part of me that wants to rush and max out...

Hello everyone, After far too much procrastination to be proud of, my wife and I are finally settling in on our investment strategy for retirement. Ironically, after lots of research, getting stuck, and avoiding it for months and months, we are going with a very simple strategy: a very general Vangu...

Ok, ya'all have convinced me that no investments in the stock market is the riskier route, both here and broadly on GRS. I appreciate zeroing in on this red flag, I really do :) I also really like SaveURFinances' advice to start small as a reasonable way to go given our timidity. I think we will loo...

Hello all, My question for today is probably not that dissimilar from other posts - it seems like a version of a pretty introductory question. However, I've spent a few hours browsing, and still feel like I could use some one-on-one, and ya'all seem friendly, so here goes :). My wife are in our late...

taz, There certainly is a subset of jobs in the social work field that may not benefit from an advanced degree -- certain types of case work, for example, which are relatively high burnout jobs easily filled by a rotating pool. However, there are some sets where the MSW would make a difference -- fo...

Thanks folks. It looks like our initial idea to draw down our savings to pay for school may be our best choice, and then we simply need to accept the consequences we are drawing down our savings for a downpayment, too, and perhaps recognize homeownership may not happen right afterwards as a conseque...

For the record, the $24K figure is definitely not that of an ill-chosen private school. It is the in-state tuition of a public university. . . tuition rates have skyrocketed since the recession began. My wife receives a $3k/year graduate assistanship... I guess you could say that brings the cost dow...

Hello all, I have a question and a solicitation for advice that I'm hoping the types of folks who are fans of GRS can help me out with. My wife has decided to go back to school to get an MSW, which we are hoping will be a gateway to better job opportunities in a field where there's plenty of feel-go...

Hi all, I have just been lurking on this site for a while, and have a question for you all. It's all wrapped up in the rent vs buy debate and whether that first time homebuyer tax credit tips the scales. Overall, we fall into the "we should rent" category, mainly because we consider houses...
