I have a "big" IRA that I rolled over from a 401k when I got laid off in 2005. I have not added anything to it because I thought since all my income is after-tax that you can't (or shouldn't) put that into a trad. IRA. so I started a little Roth IRA this year and have $3000 in it so far an...

maybe, maybe not. Depends on whether he gets the tax deduction for interest. nope, I make too much. blessing and curse :) goo, yeah, I don't have a budget or any real investment goals other than not to lose it. I'm not a big spender, though, not any more at least (hence the CC debt). but I made som...

Be really careful about timing your investments. it's a GREAT way to get poor returns. If the money is for a long-term investment it's better to just let it ride. there is zero way you'll know when the market is back for good and trying to wait and figure it out could really hurt your returns. Yeah...

I read this awhile ago... there are some good ideas esp. if you are unencumbered with a mortgage, kids, spouse (I'm a single renter), but some of them are completely insane, like outsourcing your email and finances to a body shop in India. I wouldn't want the passwords and such of my email and bank ...

Ryuns, I agree that USAA doesn't have necessarily the best funds out there, despite having several highly rated funds. however, for starting out, their low minimums for automatic investing can be worthwhile to build up, then transfer, as well as lower initial investment for IRAs (or T Rowe Price sh...

I've been thinking about this for awhile and haven't come to a satisfactory answer, so I thought I'd bounce it off the forum. I have about $8,500 in my savings account (one of those "asset management" things that lets me trade stocks & options) where it is in a money market for the mos...

I want to get a iPod nano for education purposes, no joke, no lie. The publisher of my books offers free download lectures and video for the iPod. I'm thinking about getting the iPod nano 8 gb for $200. Great for extra re-enforcement of what I'm studying, and I can listen to tunes when class-- I me...

hm... I guess I spend about $150 or so a month, and I buy quality stuff, a little at that expensive yuppie barn Wild Oats store and the rest at Costco, Trader Joes and the local grocery. what I don't buy is anything prepared, canned, or frozen (except veg). sometimes I get Classico pasta sauce and t...
