And while the mathematics of funding education are relatively straightforward (at least in contrast to more complex retirement planning projections), the reality is that most advisors rely on some very simplistic college expense inflation assumptions for ...

The post 5 Ways to Save Money On a RV Rental appeared first on Club Thrifty. Earlier this summer, my husband and I did something we have never done before. We rented a RV and drove it across the state! Since the huge RV we rented was a lot bigger than the Toyota Prius we normally drive, it was a little nerve-wracking at first. Fortunately, it didn’t take long for my husband ...

Inside:  Ready to pay off debt, but not sure where to start?  Let’s look at your options! Medium Sized Family readers, give a welcome to Jacob from Dollar Diligence!  He’s going to give us his perspective on debt today. A few years ago, I paid off $25,000 of student loan debt in just 15 months. This was a HUGE feat for me and I am so glad that I did it. If I ...

I have a plain white t-shirt that I’ve never worn; it’s sat in my drawer since I bought it two years ago, despite the fact that I already owned a perfectly good plain white t-shirt. Given the alarming rate at which white t-shirts tend to discolor, stain, and get grungy, it seems ridiculous to own two of these highly impractical items, but I bought the second one for “someday.” My ...

You may not be ready to say goodbye to summer; however, it’s pretty much packed up and left for another year. Fall is arriving, which means the following season will be filled with festivities, and added cost to your family life. It’s always a smart idea to have savings in place for important future plans, unexpected challenges, or just for a rainy day, but everyone knows that the festive season ...

When it comes to saving for the future or ensuring a retirement with maximum tax advantages, the globalized financial climate offers more options to the shrewd investor than ever before. Most people pay into an IRA for a 401k which is a very sensible (indeed essential) safeguard for your future finances. Some, however, prefer to hedge their bets with some personal investment to supplement their existing retirement plan. An increasing ...

When I first visited California at the age of thirty, it was love at first sight. We flew into Los Angeles for a stunning wedding in Laguna Beach; drove up the stunning Pacific Coast Highway; hiked the stunning edifice of Half Dome in Yosemite; wandered the steep, hip (and stunning) streets of San Francisco; and recovered with more than a few stunning glasses of Cabernet in Napa.

Change Happens Gradually   Changing a mindset can be challenging. However, this is essential in order to keep going on the FI journey. To start, my mindset was not on track. I enjoyed spending money.

Achieving a work life balance is often discussed, but infrequently agreed-upon by workers and their employers alike.

Rebuilding your credit is such an important part of achieving financial stability, yet it can seem like a mystery when it comes properly fixing and maintaining your credit score – mainly because there are so many myths out there.

A credit score is a valuable number that you should take care to improve or maintain. The higher the number the more likely you are to get the best interest rates for a home, an automobile, a credit card and a personal loan. Today this number means more than ever. It can help you to acquire auto insurance from a premier company and it can even factor into whether or not ...

You think you have your grocery store figured out. You shop the perimeter to focus on fresh food instead of getting swayed by the packaged stuff. You go early in the morning or late at night to avoid crowds. You even figured out precisely when the store restocks after the busy weekend and which of the baggers will never, ever crush the eggs. But do you really know your grocery store? ...

In other words, if Sam was a great Associate he gets promoted to Senior Associate. Since he was also a great Senior Associate, he becomes a Manager. Once again, he does a great job as a Manager so he gets promoted to Director. But he’s ...
