Here's the short story. I'm 22. My wife is 25. We could not afford to go to college at the same time. So when I moved in with her I supported her full time college schedule and part time job with my own full time job. She graduated with a double major and now has a great job (long term, security and...

Backstory: The missus and I used to go grocery shopping every week and wind up spending $150 - $200. Back when we had no discipline with our money this was the norm. My guess is this is why our American Express blue card debt got so high. We eventually got it down to a staggering $100 for the two of...

I mentioned it in my post, but it didn't seem to stick. We have a budget that tracks every penny. We are focusing entirely on our debts. Nothing is going on credit right now. Everything from groceries to gas is being paid off with cash right now. We're looking for ways to improve our credit score af...

The missus and I are about $35k in the hole (all credit cards). We've drawn up an elaborate budget in excel that tracks every nickel for the next three years. If everything stays the same for the next year and a half, we should have everything paid off completely. And yes, we've accounted for an eme...

There are likely many more qualified people to address the issue than I, but have you considered doing both? If you stop paying the credit card, even for a couple of months you're going to regret it so much it's not even funny. You'll rack up late fees, get sent to collections and they'll start hara...

I've been working at home for about 5 months now and I've got to say I'm loving absolutely every second of it. But perhaps I'm still in the honey mood period, I don't know. I work at my own pace without anyone over my shoulder, I eat lunch from my own kitchen, and on break I play video games or watc...

Hi Kenny. I'm Ed, 35k in debt, engaged and I'm a former spendaholic. I haven't used a credit card for 8 months. Welcome. I know it looks pretty bleak and it will be for quite sometime, but once you've been thrown into the fire so to speak, you'll never let yourself get there again. You'll be better ...

Even if he doesn't know his future plans (moving, marriage, et cetera), it's still likely a good idea to buy a home now, if he's capable of it. The market is so leaning toward a buyers market in New England, it's not even funny. The market is so bad he can totally purchase a home, live in it for a c...

Hi Berg. I can't help you on the other issues you've inquired about, but I can help you in regards to the real estate issue. Right now the market is still tanking (especially in the NH/Mass area) so now is a great time for first time home buyers to get themselves into a home. It's dropping at about ...

Make a very simple, easy to read website. It doesn't have to be more than a page or two. Print out some simple business cards on cheap cardstock with your service, contact information and web address. Put them in your wallet. Then just leave them around in your travels. On the table after you've fin...

We typically keep our home at a chilly 55 for all but a couple of hours in the early evening. I work from home most of the time, so I know the pain of trying to stay warm and cheap at the same time. For example, right now it's 55 in the house and I'm wearing a long sleeve pajama shirt, long pants, s...

I couldn't agree with Bearcat fan more. If you live on the lowest possible wage you can and funnel every cent you can into your start up business, it'll become stronger and produce even more money in the future. When things have leveled off and become somewhat stable (and maybe run without you in th...

It always makes me feel better to read about others in a worse situation. Suddenly my 35k doesn't seem nearly as bad as it should.

Well, just make sure you you charge enough for the necklaces to recoup your necklace supplies bill. Obvious, I know. But I once knew a guy who did the exact same thing. He'd buy items in used book stores and sell them, most often than not for a fraction of what they cost him.
