Yep I've looked into Virgin. If I decide to switch I'm going with them since it's 30-35/month here for the plan you stated. I also have a Mint account which shows my purchase breakdowns so I know I have to cut back on eating out and smaller purchases. Still a much negative networth- $10,476.09 Asset...

Up next May, hence why I want to get a downpayment, buy used and run it into the ground to avoid a payment Utilities - 120ish Ga...

1 yr on parents gold membership card. 0% interest so yes, $100/month. Better than the previous couch I had which was purple and falling apart. Which I will be selling on CL for a couple hundred and will then use to help pay off the couch.

Well I know engineering pays well but not in this region. We live in Buffalo, a depressed blue collar place. Home to a Fortune 80 IT distribution company (where I work, on the low totum pole). I have an ex who started off making 45K as a chemical engineer and a buddy of mine moved to Albany (state c...

I've never heard of any starting salaries being 65K or over in any field unless it's with a doctorate or you live in NYC with a high cost of living. I'm in sales/customer service. I make about 29K at this job and another 8K gross at the other job. I graduated college but in a useless degree. I know ...

I have about $100-200 leftover each month after expenses, bills, savings and IRA. I make about $37K gross between 2 jobs. My monthly expenses are about $2500 per month and I have 1.5K in basic checking and 1K in emergency savings. I also have about 7.5K through investments (5K through work IRA, 2.5K...

I wasn't given the offer yet. There's been an opening for this role for 3-4 weeks now so I assume they're having a hard time getting people to interview. Not to say that if I interview I'll get it but just weighing my options. I know a couple guys on the team and did a sit-in the other day with 1 of...

I agree with what you said, I just want to make sure I'm ready for this role and not going in over my head.

Thinking about a career move from sales to marketing within my company. I would be going from a basic support role (placing orders, giving pricing, bit more complex, etc.) to being a marketing rep for one of our biggest lines in the company. Lots of phone talking, presentations, some travel, etc. Bi...

Why do I believe dividend stocks to be the best? Compound interest. Stable companies such as P&G, GE (which I currently own) and perhaps Verizon often have great dividend %'s. Even if the stock stays at the same price (and these bigger stable stocks tend to grow annually) the healthy dividend le...

I figured that or a stock/bond balance with some commodities mixed in. I'm looking for a multi-generational investment, not just a 5-10 yr fix.

Couldn't find a post about this so I'll post the question here. What is the single best long-term investment for say a 50-75 year period? Buy on a recurring basis (purchased every year), hold for 50-75 yr period, any money you make that are paid out on (say dividends) are re-invested. I've read arti...

Career-change = I would go from 14/hr to 12/hr but can supplement that with extra PT work. I plan on paying my student loans while I go to school. For school, you either work 40 hrs a week then 9 months out of the yr you go to school 2 days a week from 6-10pm. That goes on for 5 yrs, and they pay it...
