I love this thread! Time management is certainly an ongoing endeavor. Something you have to work at each day. By I have two tools that have worked wonders for my productivity! The first is called Wunderlist. It's an online tool that basically allows you to create to-do lists. But I have also customi...

I really like this idea! Just a few other thoughts... How about setting a BIG goal along with the date you want to achieve it. Along with some micro-goals that lead up to that. The app could send daily or weekly reminders to make sure you're on track to reach your goal. Plus, I'd love to see a commu...

Personally, I just want to say kudos to you!! Soooooo many people incur a ton of college debt and end up in the 'hole' for quite some time. College is certainly a great option for some people. However, it's no longer the 'guaranteed ticket' that it used to be. There really are many options today tha...

Why not pay down on the house? Even with investments - it's highly unlikely right now that you'll get above 4.65% in the market.

So you could knock out some of the debt and save on interest.

I agree with Tightwad. Depending on what sort of tenants you get - renting can be quite stressful. Especially when you're not close enough to keep watch over the property. And if you do decide to have a management company do the oversight, that's of course an additional expense. Just looks like to m...
