I agree. Incremental change is a lot easier to manage than huge step changes.

I would cross off the rental plan. $75 is not enough of a profit, in my opinion. Keep in mind that you will incur costs, such as heating systems, roof, etc. that is presumably not covered in the amount you will be collecting. If you have already taken this into account, then please disregard. Otherw...

Baker, I believe the FIVE dependents put you in a lower tax bracket. I'll feel sorry for you when the number dwindles to zero. Your cost will go down (no kids) but you will have to find additional ways to shelter your money. He doesn't say he has 5 dependents, he says he has 5 deductions (on his W-...

You are forgetting the fact that you have to pay tax on the interest you earn in the CD--but the balance transfer fee is not tax deductible. At best, you break even. Anne is right -- you pay tax on ALL of the earned interest, which probably amounts to close to your profit. You need to find an offer...

IMO, parents should insulate their kids as much as possible from money problems so that the kids aren't constantly worrying about whether there'll be food on the table when they get home from school. That's not to say you shouldn't be teaching your kids about personal finance and set a good example...

I have to say that the collection was taken in a very tasteful way. The organizer came around with a big manilla envelope and asked people to contribute. He then handed the envelope to each person in his or her office and then turned his back so that you could put whatever you wanted, or didn't want...

Can you stand toe to toe with another adult and say, "No!" If so, you have passed the hardest test in being a landlord. Consider this VERY carefully. Also, keep in mind that a good rule of thumb is that the mortgage should be <60% of the monthly income on the property or you will be losing...

Thanks to everyone for their replies... well, almost everyone. To clear up a few things: I would not consider myself to be a friend of this coworker. He has no kids, he has a place to stay, and he has a car. My clothes would not fit him. Unfortunately he no longer needs a pet sitter since his pets a...

A coworker's home burned down the other night. Nobody was hurt, but the house is a total loss. Another coworker has taken it upon himself to start a cash collection for the now homeless coworker. While I am not unsympathetic to the situation in which my coworker now finds himself, I feel uncomfortab...

My story starts in college. The first week I was exposed to all kinds of offers for free T-shirts, Frisbees, etc. simply in exchange for filling out a credit card application. I had some part time jobs in college that allowed me to keep paying the minimums, but I continually flirted with my limits. ...

Having studied two-phase flow and other thermal-hydraulics topics, I can assure you that water always boils in very measurable ways. One might even say that it's fascinated when you really understand what's going on.
