What'd you do with the VW? Trade it in on the new one, or private sale and used that cash to buy the new one? I plan on selling it privately. Congratulations. Hopefully it will effortlessly give you another 100k miles. I'm still waffling back and forth between an HRV and Toyota Rav4 (CRV's too big ...

Thought I'd post an update since everyone was so helpful. I ended up getting a 2009 Honda CRV with 57000 miles for 12,500. And, I did not take out a car loan. I budgeted like crazy and also dipped into my emergency fund. But I'll be working to build that back up now - and will be cutting any extra s...

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I do think you are right that buying a car with 100,000 miles is asking for trouble - even though I don't really drive that far. A friend gave me a suggestion of buying from enterprise or hertz - and I'm considering getting something other than an SUV that would jus...

I tried the Beetle last winter and it did not work. On days when there was marginal snow with good tires, the beetle still got stuck, and one time spun out of control. Getting a car better suited for winter is a must. I was stuck for 3 weeks last winter because the car is very low to the ground, and...

Hi all, Hoping I can get some wise advice on buying a used car as I know absolutely nothing about cars. I currently have a 2003 VW beetle which I bought used with about 70K miles on it. It was not a good buy for me because I live on the east coast with snow and discovered that it just does not work ...

I am selling the house. We had a contract that said we would split the proceeds 50/50. Of course now, he has told everyone that I'm kicking him out of the house we bought (even though I moved out and am paying rent, while he lives there); and that he no longer believes a 50/50 split is fair. Thank g...

Update: I've been looking back at some of my old posts in light of my new situation and boy do I wish I would have heeded the advice I got here three years ago. Not only did I end up moving back in with my boyfriend but we ended up purchasing a house together last year. We bought it in the auction f...

Great thanks for the feedback. I will pay them off then and hope I don't dip too far!

Hi all, I'm happy to say that I will finally be in the position to pay off my student loan by the end of the year *knocks on wood*. I have a balance of just under $7000 with an interest rate of 6.7% I have a fully funded emergency fund $8000 which I will be hoping to double this year (also achievabl...

Thanks to you both. Now that I've been on my own I feel so much relief because of how much weight I had been carrying. That is a sure sign that it was time to go. Right now I'm going to use the extra hours I've gained in a day to focus on me, my own personal growth, and my career. And, will be doubl...

I will say that my divorce ended due to the same routine you are talking about. My ex-wife would go to work, come home, eat, and then crash in bed. The communication and bonding time between us suffered to the point we both moved in different directions. In essence my ex-wife became married more to...

Hi all, Thanks for the responses. Yes I am a millennial and that could be part of the reason I have the expectations that I have but I'm not expecting a perfect job or perfect life. I would love to have a life outside of work though. I would like to come home before 7 and not resent having to cook/d...

Hi, I'm relatively new to the work field, and thought perhaps some of you that have been working for a while, can offer some insight and advice. I finished grad school 6 years ago, and have been fortunate to find work in my field, and make a good living. I make 95K per year, plus have really awesome...

Put a line item in your budget for how much you're willing to "give" each month. My husband and I don't have one right now while we finish off student loans, but when that's done it will be $50/month and increase yearly. This includes giving to charity, supporting podcasts we like, donati...
