I realized that I should note that I'm concerned that if I sound like I'm criticizing the way that he spends money, he'll NEVER be willing to talk about it again. Honestly, I haven't been keeping up with the records/etc. because I'm so frustrated - I make plans, and then... they hit reality and... v...

Background - my husband and I are both in our early thirties, and over the 15ish years we've been together, his income has generally been about twice what mine is. Sadly, he was laid off about a year ago and has been unable to find another job. We've been married for about 4.5 years now, and I'm the...

nesterenes - I think the CD to savings wouldn't be a problem (that's just a tracking the money issue - not a credit score issue), but I'm more worried about paying off the debt suddenly... I guess it's a trickier question than I thought! peachy - we haven't contacted a lender yet, but that will be o...

It sounds like you're in a really good position to get started right now! I wasn't making that much until about two years ago, and I'm now 31 with a college degree.. and my rent (still split) is higher. You'll do fine!! A bank account is really a must-have. It'll give you a start building a good cre...

My husband and I hope to buy our first home within the next year, HOPEFULLY within the next six months. We have a down payment set aside that *was* (mostly) in a CD, it just matured and we'll be keeping it in a high-interest savings account until we actually buy a house. The rest of the money isn't ...

My coffee shop charges $1.50 for coffee, if I bring my own cup. $1.75 if I don't. A pound of good coffee is $15. It makes about 35 cups. A medium coffee is 1.5 cups. That's about 65c a cup. But you might need to add sugar and cream. 2 tsp of cream is about 12c. How much for sugar? 2c, perhaps? So t...

Thanks for all the insight! An Iphone, for the record, is right out. I just can't pay for the name like that. Or the gadgets. Besides, from what I've seen, the average life span of an I product is about two years, tops! A friend told me that she loved her Treo.. of course, she now has an Iphone. And...

My husband has declared that I *need* a new cell phone.. my 3+ yr old bottom-of-the-line model is starting to exhibit the kind of wonky behavior that he INSISTS will cause it to die just when I need it. I've already put him off six months, but I promised I'd start looking into a new cell phone. Of c...

I know this thread is old, but having known a bunch of people running porn sites 5 years ago, I wanted to add my .02! Even online amuatur porn was never as easy as it sounds... I never *did* any, but I lived with one full time sex-activist/pron web girl and quite a few girls who modeled for sites t...

I add a few drops of lemon juice... or an ounce or two of flavored selzer, or juice if I'm feeling like being really wild (I have blood sugar problems) I've also tried a bit of licorice root in my water bottle - licorice can raise blood pressure though, so if yours is already high, I'd stay away, ju...

The days when it was possible to make truly "passive" money on the internet ended about 5 years ago, when the so-called amateur porn site industry hit critical mass. No, I am not joking or being snarky. Invest your time and efforts elsewhere. This isn't the case, it's still very possible ...

Better... but not as much better as we would be if the cost of living weren't going upupup! WE/I got over the debt "hump" a few years ago, so while there's still some debt, it's all manageable. I'm being perhaps a little fiscally un-sound and enjoying the fact that for the first time in my...

I'm in the "depends" camp as well... I pretty much always buy private label (er, what we in the grocery biz call store brands) juice - at least, if it's 100% juice, frozen veggies, aluminum foil.. But panty liners? Tried it once and I will NEVER do so again! I'm sure there were other thing...

I've got to agree - It may hurt to extend the life of those student loans, but until your income stabilizes, it'll help keep you afloat. When you start making the money those degrees will let you make, concentrate on making up for lost time on the loans! Default is MUCH WORSE than an extended paymen...
