Re: Daughter getting married

I just got married last September, and was fortunate to have my parents give me a budget of $15k (more than my now-husband and I were planning on paying if we did it ourselves) in a relatively high COL area. They gave it to me in a few installments, and I meticulously tracked expenses (I'm an engine...

Re: Best way to send flowers?

I like the idea of calling up the local flower shops, but if you do go through one of the big sites, FTD offers free shipping/delivery through Shoprunner. You can get Shoprunner for free indefinitely if you have an AmEx card, and Shoprunner also has some promotions - free trials and currently has a ...

Re: climbing rope recommendations?

Unfortunately, I can't be much help as far as recommending a specific rope - I've been a user, but not a purchaser! However, as a search and rescue volunteer, my groups frequently purchase equipment through Karst Sports - they have reasonable prices, free (and prompt) shipping, and great equipment. ...

Re: Cell Phone Contract Expiring & Desire to Save $$

Since you already have a T-mobile smartphone, if you're okay with keeping your current phone and still want T-mobile service, I'd look at the Straight Talk plans previously mentioned or the T-mobile $30 prepaid plan - unlimited data and text with 100 minutes talk (scroll all the way down at http://p...

Re: Wedding band durability & long-term costs- gold vs plati

Wow, where can you get platinum band for $300 nowadays? I got mine over 6 years ago (4.5 mm, 950) for nearly $600 and it was considered to be exceptional deal that I only got thanks to some size-related pricing anomalies on the jeweler's site I purchased from, even after another $50 spent to resize...

Wedding band durability & long-term costs- gold vs platinum?

I'm shopping for wedding rings, and plan on purchasing a basic thin band to go with my 14k white gold engagement ring. I can purchase the 14k white gold band for ~$100, and a platinum one for ~$300 - neither one is going to break the bank, and I'm not concerned about the potential color difference. ...
