I'm wading a few feet from shore tossing my lure (a crocodile) into the jones beach inlet with the hopes of finding striped bass or blue fish. A 40ft cigarette boat comes flying by, loud, obnoxious and in my eyes -useless. A mindless, conspicuous display of wealth and nothing more. Turn the key poin...

Straight talk from an 62 year old:Your broke because you chose to be broke. Your cards are maxed out because you choose to have them maxed out.. "My husband and in like to eat out.." Me too but I've reached my financial objectives. Might I suggest the following - set some achievable short ...

$10 works for me but I'm afraid there will still be protests. I don't like to admit it but I occasionally buy a burger or two (no fries - really bad for me) from the dollar menu - except it isn't a dollar any more. Would my behavior change if it became the $1.50 menu probably not. The middle class w...

''If only could control spending..." You absolutely can but you really have to want to. Tuff question: would the person you lost want you to spend yourself into trouble? I think we both know the answer to that. How can you best honor that person? As a guy who started with nothing and now... The...

does flipping burgers warrant $15? Depends on how many burgers can be flipped per hour. What will $15 per hour do to the cost of a burger? It won't be good $15/hour probably won't impact the cost of a burger as much as the cost of beef, wheat, and all the other ingredients have. 1. Labor is the mos...

We humored you before when you presented a hypothetical situation and you never actually were able to defend it... 1. I'll use hypotheticals as I see fit..

I find this a very interesting topic. I believe we have to view the minimum wage issue as follows: Why: the minimum wage isn't a living wage... Work at Mikey Ds and sporting a family would be all but impossible. Thus the multiple job breadwinners... The questions: does flipping burgers warrant $15? ...

I cant add to the advise here as most seems spot on. I noted you said you were using a mortgage broker... Might I suggest you search for rates on the net as well... Just to be sure your getting the best deal available... With a solid down payment getting a mortgage should be no big deal... 1. I have...

Sounds like your trust will cease to exist on your 25 birthday. 1. Pay off all debt 2. Resist the urge to splurge - no cars, boats, toys etc. 3. Go to vanguard plop the money into 3 diversified low cost ETFs. 4. Sit back and watch the magic of compounding - yes there will be ups and down but you are...

Attributes of a financially independent person: Generally they are debt free (yes there are who are clever at using leverage but it requires extreme discipline). That car loan is consumer debt- consumer debt is the enemy! Pay it off and never pay another dime of interest.. Other than a mortgage. Att...

I am going to ignore your question because I see a bigger issue. Let me get this straight you owe $35k on a car that I'll assume cost around $50K which you financed for at least 5 years and you have $70k in student loan debt? unless you need that vehicle for work I have to ask do you really want to ...
