I used to track everything in my checkbook register - checks, atm withdrawls, automatic payments, even credit card and debit card purchases. My balance was the REAL amount of money I had. However this was a paper balance and prone to human error. I also spent lots of time at the end of the month com...

Hey sdkramer, In your first post you said you hated credit unions (and not to get you started). Can you please expand on that a little? (without getting you started :D ) I have always prefered credit unions to banks. And I prefer Vanguard, ING, HSBC, and FNBO to my credit union. Thanks! BTW, looks l...

Maybe it's just for my personal use but I was hoping the article would deal more with asset allocation than linking to other articles on the matter. I can see however where that much detail doesn't fit into this article. It looks good so far. Maybe a idea for a future article will cover begginer ass...

Mobile phone $36 Basic cable $15 RoadRunner internet $45 I'm thinking of dropping basic cable again (didn't have it for a year) because most tv shows I watch I download off the net (torrent). This is my version of DVR! However I do have a HDTV and I get the QAM 'free and clear' channels for free. OT...

I feel your pain. My grandparents sent my brother, sister, and I savings bonds every year for our birthdays and christmas. My parents set up savings accounts for each of us to put these in (in their names I think - maybe joint). We were so young we really didn't know much about it. Any extra money w...

I say get the Canon. It will fit in your pocket and will be with you for those "I wish I had my camera" moments. I'm a Canon fan. I have a 4yr old Canon A70 and the sensor in it died. I sent it to Canon for a repair estimate, even though I had pretty much resigned to buying a new Canon SD7...

Today I'm seeing it on every other link click. I have to hit back and try again. Usually works the second time.

My 401k is through T. Rowe Price becasue of work. I have both my Roth IRA and taxable account at Vanguard (I...

As usual, I second pf101's advice. Pay off car loan if it is high interest first, otherwise save for retirement. Get your company's match if they offer one, it's free money. If there is no match, a RothIRA is a good choice because you have more control over your investments and can access your contr...
