true, part of the thing is that in 3 years I'll be a full fledged physician and my income will be going up to something like 8 or 10 times what it is now. and, @ autumnlaughing, the places I'm looking at in Boston are not condos, they are like studio apartments for $180K, and when I'm a fancy doctor...

I agree, the market is not looking great for the future, I wouldn't expect to actually make money on a place in Boston like I did on my last house. But I did think it was a reasonable possibility that I could sell a place for about what I paid for it 4 years from now, and in that case was wondering ...

hi there: I'm looking for other people who are in a buy vs. rent quandary, or people who have feedback on it. I've been going back and forth over renting or buying for several months now and I just can't figure out what I want to do. It is a place we would only stay for 3-4 years, so the traditional...

Like Sam said: just ignore the marketing side of Upromise. Buy what you usually buy. And no one has mentioned one of the more significant money making parts of UPromise, which is that you can make anywhere from 3-8% back on purchases at restaurants (which is a lot more than like 0.03 cents on an ite...

Does anyone who's already done the legwork know what the best cell phone deal would be if you are a frugal type and starting fresh? Don't care about camera phones, media, etc. I have an old cell phone off Craigslist and use a family plan on Verizon currently, but my parents are kicking me off the pl...

I absolutely love Kiva. There is nothing like giving money to a good cause and then getting that money back to be able to give it again. For those of you who truly enjoy the idea of helping people out of poverty, you must visit the Kiva site and see what it's about. It's even fun just to browse. I j...

OK, well I did turn this up: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/templates/TC010197771033.aspx This would be cool for the average loan, unfortunately it doesn't work with the parameters of my loans (after all, most loan calculators assume you have to make a payment every month of some specific amount,...

Hi everyone: I'm trying to figure out how I can judge the impact of payments I'm making on my student loan debt. I have a total of about $175K currently in student loan debt (med school), but most of the loans are consolidated, and also the federal loans from a few years ago have very low interest r...

This year we are planning to all donate to a great charity together (like Heifer International! I also love Kiva - http://www.kiva.org ) and also to pick a name out of hat and get that one person something special, instead of getting a bunch of generic gifts/small gifts. Everyone in my family has ev...

Even though I do a lot of frugal things, like buying all my clothes at the thrift store, using coupons, and selling items on eBay in my spare time, the success that I am most proud of is definitely my Roth IRA. I am 26 years old, and when I was a sophomore in college, I became very passionate about ...
