I'm getting a Wii next week! :D :D My family is buying a used bundle off a friend of mine that bought all the stuff and ended up barely playing it. I'm so excited (and I just can't hide it!)!

I make minimum wage right now! The minimum wage in New York State is currently $7.15 an hour. I try to work between 15 and 20 hours a week in order to afford the gas I need to drive to my university's campus (where I work as well as take classes), my insurance, and food. The rest of my life is subsi...

Crocheting and knitting gifts always seems like a great idea to me... until I remember how much yarn costs. A blanket can cost between $60-$100, and requires so many hours of labor, so I tend to stick to small items if I make anything for gifts. That said, I did make a TV colorbar themed blanket for...

I have to agree with paying interest on the unsubsidized loan. If you don't pay down that interest, it will be rolled into your loan principal when your loans come out of deferment - that's why I'm making it a priority to pay off my unsubsidized loan interest for the next two years. I let it pile up...

Hmmm... I feel like I don't fit into any of the categories. I'm in between right now - I have a large (to me) balance on my card, and I'm not using it at all until I get it completely paid off. After that I will use it, but never carry a balance.

Of course I don't know how much money you're planning to keep in this account, but rate chasing only really matters if that amount is above $2,000 (in my opinion). At $2,000, each percentage point you gain means an extra $20 a year. And actually, that might not even be worth it, depending on your pe...

From Rochester, New York (not in any way to be confused with New York City. In fact, it's 300 miles from New York City and I've only been down to NYC twice in my life. So please never ask me how things are in "the Big Apple," because I have no idea! :wink: ). Right now, living in Los Angel...

you could take a greyhound and save some money, especially if you aren't considering taking a car. I just looked up the cost of Greyhound: $398.00 for the round trip (not to mention 6 total days on a bus!) as opposed to the $385 I'm paying for the plane tickets. With the cost of gas these days, I c...

The problem at this point has become time. By taking so much time to figure out what we're doing, the cost is now a bare minimum of $380 for me alone. I can't drive without him - that would be $720 in gas and three days of driving all by my lonesome. So I'm flying with him - just at an increase in c...

Excuse the annoyance in my tone for the next paragraph - I'm using this both as an update on the situation and a way to vent about it! Ok, so, Erik's been taking forever to think about all this and to talk to his parents, and now the cost of plane tickets have risen to the point where it's the same ...

Many people realize that, if you have a cell phone, there's no reason to sign up until you need it. If you find yourself locked out, out of gas or broken down, just call in and sign up on the spot -- and they'll send a tow truck. I've never heard that! But does it work at 3am? Because that would be...

[2. Leasing anything other than a luxury car is rarely a winning move, and even then it's doubtful. Leasing is playing roulette with the residual value of the car, and at the end of the lease you MUST make a decision about what to do with the car. Your feeling about buying a reasonably priced, used...

Significantly? A quick scan of CD rates at bankrate.com says no. You can compare savings rates at bankrate as well, but you'll find a lot of people here have accounts with ING and HSBC. I find this to be true, so it's really a question of whether you feel more secure knowing you have quick access t...

They may explicitly state that they're not going to do anything for your advancement, but that's just to cover themselves if you decide to sue or kick up a fuss. Companies don't want to waste resources, so, if they agree to pay for your education/training, they're implying that they're going to hel...
