In regards to Sallie Mae -I have not had a problem with their website at all. I've been paying on my husband's graduate loans for 3 1/2 years now. They are in deferment though, because he is still in school, so maybe that is why they are seperated out? It even asks me if I want to make a payment or ...

I have in the past. I basically just use my credit card and pay it off every 2 weeks. My current landlord only takes a check!!! How old fashioned!

I have paid about $1400 since I last posted. Much of this has been by reducing the amount in my savings account as opposed to earning extra income - but I am still counting it. ;)

I'm sorry if this is too much of a digression, but which companies allow you to buy individual stocks in a Roth IRA? I had tried to look into this a while back, and I concluded that this couldn't be done. I have personally bought individual stocks in my Roth IRA at Fidelity. (Both of the stocks I b...

My husband and I were in a similar situation when my husband decided to go to pharmacy school and accrue the same amount of extra debt. My only suggestion would be PUBLIC, PUBLIC, PUBLIC education. Also, FYI I believe '11-12 is the last year for subsidized loans for grad/professional school students...

I am currently reading A Clash of Kings . I would agree that the books are slow going - I have been reading since labor day and am about 2/3 of the way through. It's starting to pick up though! I am also perusing The Omnivore's Dilemma . Also HIGHLY recommend The Hunger Games and The Girl books, tho...

I like TD Ameritrade, but I am doing straight stocks. The site is pretty user friendly, but I don't like how you cannot buy an amount of stock - say $500 of CVX. You have to buy in whole shares. Sharebuilder allows you to buy a set amount of a certain stock.

I think we might have the highest student loan here :) Actually it is my husband's student loan, mine is paid off. He graduated from a pharmacy school with a PharmD degree in may of 2009. His student loan was 72K. We met in May 2009, and got married in 2010. Under my awesome supervision (a.k.a nagg...

Thanks so much for the encouragement. It's been tuff this final year because my husband is on his rotations and is hardly working - like 4-6 hours a week. In years prior he had been working 14 or so a week. The debt (ie interest) is really going to start rolling soon. I only make about 38k. We figur...

I now live in Chicago but am based in San Antonio. I have been working from home for about 3 1/2 years and make about 38K. At...
