I think paying off your debts and deciding what is necessary and what is not is your first move. It's really up to you to decide if you prefer paying $680/month in car payments (ouch) or if you'd much rather free that money up. I do agree with Ray for the most part and all of his points there. Secon...

I am starting to feel the same way. We got rid of cable when I was temporarily unemployed. Since then, we have had Netflix. It's been over two years now. I still miss cable. I admit---I am a TV watcher, as it is my way to relax. But there are so many programs that I used to watch on cable that I rea...

I would also agree to stop paying extra on the mortgage for now. I think you can lower your food bill by $100. We are not even remotely vegetarian (my husband does low-carb permanently) and we spend less than $300/month on groceries buying tons of meat. We are also big eaters but thankfully not big....

In my entire (and all too lengthy) undergraduate/graduate career, I spent $150-$200 on books for one class regularly because science books are expensive like that---and of course, every textbook needs a lab book. I will say that I did purchase an international version of an organic chemistry book on...

I have a stupid question about ING, ally, etc all those online banks. What's the catch? Where does your money go when you open an account with them? For instance, a brick and mortar bank (the best I can find at the amount I have to open an account), would offer an APY of 0.15 for a savings account....

Savings bonds are entirely online now, I believe. Honestly, the online system is terrible. I tried to get one last year but I kept having trouble getting through after multiple attempts and went to one of the last banks to offer them before they stopped giving them out. Maybe it's better now but it ...

I looked it up, and it looks like all I have available is Frontier, or TimeWarner, unless I go farther afield to more exotic choices, which I'm not sure how they work. It looks like I maybe could do something like phone via Frontier, and then internet via Earthlink? Has anyone had any experience wi...

I think brad starts off with a good point. So let's go from there. If you are trying to set a budget for the month and then spend money from there, you need to decide how much you are allocating to what area of your budget. If you are really trying to cut down on expenses, you might need to go throu...

What I do is budget an amount for the month. I budget my maximum amount and work from there. Every time I purchase something, I keep the receipt and then put the amount into my excel file so that it deducts it from the budgeted amount. This helps because I purchase all my groceries with a credit car...

I use a little/simple excel file that you can download for free by Googling "pear budget excel." Not what you wanted but just putting that out there for anyone reading the forums.

I live in a major city and you can sustain yourself on your budget. However... 1. I'd see if I could knock the gas bill down a bit. If you are now living closer to work, will your gas budget decrease significantly? 2. Your food bill is too high. My husband and I have a lot more take home pay than yo...

Many brick and mortar schools now offer online degrees. I would check out city and state schools for their options, as they may also be on the cheaper side.

Agreed on all counts. It's clear that a low-carb diet is the only thing that works for some people, while others (like me) have no trouble losing weight on a low-fat or simply an "eat a little of everything and not too much of anything" diet. And I think that those different responses pro...

My husband has attempted to change his lifestyle numerous times and I find it quite laughable that everyone thinks it's as simple as "eating less, working out more" because it's not true for everyone. I feel badly for my husband because the guy eats less than I do and works out three or fo...
