It just depends if you can afford to replace that car if anything happens. You also need to consider the coverage it gives for medical issues, and for the other drivers car (in case it is your fault). I have found the reward outweighs the risk in case something happens.

I would just shred the card and keep it open or keep using the card once every few months then pay it off completely so they do not reduce your credit line. One aspect of credit score is the total amount of credit you have and your unused credit.

I would say that you should go with Vanguard. They keep their fees low which means you will keep more money in your pocket. They also have the mutual funds that are balanced appropriately for your age. Just choose the fund with the date closest to your retirement date. It is somewhat set it and forg...

I have to agree with the statement about buying the annuity. I know it sounds like a good idea to have that stable income for the rest of your life, but you should run the numbers compared to a well balance portfolio for a person of your age. Also, why don't you stash some of your pension in a an IR...

Everyone has good, valid points. I want to point out that there is a happy medium in between. Use a debit card! Debit cards are great since like credit cards, they are easy and very convenient to use. You can also monitor your spending with them. Also, you can use debit cards in pretty much any stor...

I totally agree with all these tips. Like several people said, in a nutshell, the best thing to do is to live below your means. Pinpoint the level at which you can live comfortably given your current finances, and then make sure that you live well below that. Of course, this doesn't not mean in any ...

Well, I agree that while couponing does take up quite a bit of time, it is pretty much worth it in the end. Of course, at first, you will be spending a lot more time than is necessary with planning and such, but in the long run, couponing will be almost instinctive. Therefore, I think that the advan...

Really, everything everyone stated is valid, depending on your point of view . As Savarel so aptly stated, it is simply a matter of your own personal needs, your situation, etc. There really is no correct answer to the question of whether time is more valuable than money and vice versa. Therefore, t...

Yup. I agree with stannius. While it would be very much ideal for you to be able to get a $110,000 loan to take care of the closing costs, it just isn't possible. Here, you have to help yourself and have a downpayment all set up before you go into home buying. That's where budgeting, saving, and scr...

I also would highly recommend A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton Malkiel. He is a Princeton professor who demonstrates that index funds beat stock picking over the long run.

That's quite a good question. In my opinion, a pet is something that can be a want or a need, depending on the situation. Some people feel pets are unnecessary, but for animal lovers (I'm assuming you are one), having a pet can be a "need". Companionship is a human need, after all. So, the...
