in the divorce, all the tools went with him. gone. Now that i have financially stabilized, all i own is a ladder, hammer and a few screwdrivers. During hurricane IKE, i watched people haul away perfectly good downed tree limbs. what a waste of good fire wood. all i thought of was dang! wish i had a ...

I can get fired if i use my cell phone while at work. I teach high school, so if the kids can't have phones, neither can the teachers. I look at my watch about 400 times a day, including needing the date to write hall passes. I have a raymond weil tango stainless steel 2006 two tone (gold accents) w...

yes, people spend that much for a superior piece of furniture. trust me, it will be worth if to have a stickly (hickory, ethan allen, century, and some names who evade me at the moment). i paid 2000 for the century leather wing chair and have enjoyed its richness and quality every day for 10 years. ...

In asking this question, you should remind people to subtract non-grocery items. A trip to Safeway or Costco can entail cooking implements, shampoo, laundry soap, dish soap, toilet paper, Kleenex, feminine hygiene products, baby stuff, prescriptions, film processing, light bulbs, etc. i don't see h...

well, as a teacher, i can say that a son's text messaging will be a distraction at school.

kids text each other during class and cheat with text messaging during tests. your son does NOT need text messaging for his health, safety, or well being. don't get snookered.

hubby accepted a job from a local furniture maker. it's low paying but he might learn something. 12 dollars an hour for 30 hours per week. we'll see.

my only concern is that cost of gasoline will eat into his small take home pay.

4. tax withholding is at "single" rate. is this right? I would think you'd want the withholding at married unless you have a reason to over-withhold. I found a great tool here that allows you to put your paycheck info in and see what the net take-home result would be. Another tool let's y...

Thank goodness you were ahead of the game and already working the Dave Ramsey TMM. (1) Since you only have one income now, the emergency is fund is even more important. I wouldn't cut into the e/r fund to pay off the mortgage. (2) I would cut out the services that you and your husband (and kids if ...

pf101 said: do you have access to a HELOC? I'm not a big fan of raiding your home equity but it's possible your husband will need seed money for his business so having that open that you can tap for a small business loan wouldn't be a bad thing. i do not think we will need to do a home equity loan. ...

If your husband is home half-time looking for work, perhaps he could spend 1 hour a day cleaning the house. Keep an eye on the pest control and see if you need it. Drop down your cell phones, but don't cancel if you have one of those plans you have to buy out. I would not pay off the mortgage yet. ...
