Re: The perfect Boglehead car

The most recent model you can afford. Many innovative safety technologies, which were only seen in luxury models, are now available even in entry-level cars. They allow you to avoid accidents and to survive the ones you can't avoid. Please value your life and limbs over your net worth.

How do you carry two Iphones?

I have a personal Iphone 5 and company Iphone 4 and bulging pockets. Any creative solutions folks have come up with to carry these devices throughout the day without a man purse? Thanks in advance.

Need help-bought too much car

Please advise how I can salvage MY situation. I recently spent 44 K on a new car. I can pay it off in three years, but I have serious remorse on my profligacy. How can I get out of this loan without loosing substantial amounts to depreciation and 3.5 K on sales tax. Thanks.
