My 2c run quite a bit more conservative: Payoff debts first (debtor ruled by their creditor...), Build large emergency fund, then, fund retirement "fully" Let me elaborate: life loves to throw slurves. I like to be prepared for tomorrow's worst case scenario, than a distant future's best c...

Hmm, mine aren't exactly hacks, but good habits. 1. Make sure you delete (use Eraser, not just empty recycle bin) every downloaded statement. Or bundle the whole program inside a TrueCrypt VD. They usually contain ALL account information and are unencrypted (unlike the program itself). They are HUGE...

My experience with Wamu: I just moved to them this year for checking. They're fine though I've moved to ING Savings and Electric Orange for checking mostly. I use Wamu when I need some cash (the branch is right next to my house). I'm curious to know what the rate is for the online savings--I know th...

I would first carefully reread the schedule and the requirements for getting the match. With the information you've given, I'd suggest contributing to the Roth because you can be more selective with your brokerage and the funds. If there's even a tiny match (typically 1%) for contributing to your re...

Even before you finish reading those books I would recommend that you start saving. Try some old fashioned number crunching. How much do you ideally/realistically expect to live on every year after you retire? You'll need to think about how many years you think you'll need that income. Here's a simp...

You can start by saving anywhere--your mattress or your bank. What you live off of during retirement doesn't have to come 100% from your retirement account. To answer your question about tax-deferment--it all sort of depends. It's a great idea to defer tax in some way, whether by Roth IRA or 403(b),...

The first two are my favorites (of the ones I've played).

Thanks for the suggestions. I've put Art of Happiness and Smart Women... on hold at my library. I'll check them out this weekend. Thanks again!

    Turn off the lights!
    Blankets, not heaters.
    Ice water, not A/C.
    Close the fridge.
Those are your basics, but one people may forget is Hibernate (the computer).

A computer on 24/7 can take a ton of power. Especially if you have a 800W PSU for your uber-ober-fragging. You know who you are...

Yikes, could be a faux pas--but hear me out. My girlfriend and I aren't spending much money on each other for our birthdays this year, so I thought two books would be a nice present. She's 21, wrapping up her junior year in college. I'm 24, and a private school teacher. We're both very practical and...

Great tool. I've only played with it a little, but it looks very useful. Will make my "tune up" much easier. Thank you!

I just made 9 billion dollars in a matter of seconds. It was so easy! I especially liked the ad's low grammar and that if I wasn't ready to make money the ez way, I could click no...and be sent to monsterjobs.
