You could also consider teaching beginner pilot's courses if you have enough hours and can pass any certification requirements. That way you can still get hours in, but won't have to pay for them. (of course this is much more difficult if you don't have your own plane). You might have to get creativ...

I wrote about my net worth for the first time as part of this writing project and shared percentage growth, not actual details. I realize details are more interesting and have more meaning, but I am just not comfortable sharing that info on-line (nor do I think it would accomplish anything). I did s...

I'm rich. I wake up each morning knowing I'll probably live through the day. I have food in my house, running water, heating and air conditioning. I have a job. I have insurance and access to health care. I don't wonder if I'll eat today. I can read books, visit museums and express my opinion witho...

I'm in the same position (not Iraq, I got out of the military 2 years ago ;) ). I plan on doing it all at once, but I want to do more research and buy based on balancing out my current allocations. I think I will do it closer to February, but I want to get the money in there now. I have read a lot o...

No problem pointing to Frugal Trader. He keeps a great site. In fact, maybe I can convince him to share a primer with me. :)


A guest post on GRS? Every pf blogger's dream come true! ;)

I'm sure FT would consider. And yes, he does keep a great site.

if you do an international edition of your post could you do one about RRSP's [registered retirement savings plan]. even though i contribute to mine regularly i still don't fully understand how they work. I think Frugal Trader from Million Dollar Journey (a Canadian pf blogger) regularly writes abo...

After writing on the blog about how damn cold our house is, I was all ready to make an inventory of windows that we could insulate. Turns out the main culprits are <i>already</i> storm windows. Drat. I'm not sure what we're going to do, but we need to think of something. In order to stay warm, we'r...

I think you bring up a great topic, and one that was recently written about by Steve, from the blog Brip Blap. He wrote that spending less than you earn is the wrong way to think . His message was that you should think about increasing your income for the same reasons you mentioned. I feel the same ...

The vote on this is split. This tells me that we're close to needing to subdivide, but not quite there yet. I'll leave this stickied for a while and see how things go. Meanwhile, we can brainstorm categories. Investing, Frugality, and ??? seem like good choices, where ??? is some term I can't think...

In addition to Dylan's advice (which is solid), you could consider working as a CFP for a non-profit that offers financial advice. By this, I mean working on a government or military installation to provide financial advice for govt. workers or troops, working for the state to provide similar servi...

Congratulations! It's so crazy, but no. Even just a month ago, I thought I was going to buy myself a nice Stickley chair. But now I'd rather tuck that $2,000 into my IRA and bolster my savings for my upcoming move to working from home. That's a paradoxon I've observed with myself, as well: The more...

JD, as things grow, splitting the "personal finance" section makes more sense. Personal example: I logged on for the first time since yesterday and there were 22 unread topics in the personal finance section. If I don't read over two or three days, it becomes difficult to keep up. It's eve...
