Re: Possible Layoff: Need Assurance That We Will Be Okay

I just want to say you are not alone. My spouse was just laid off from Megacorp after almost 20 years with no warning (high performer, no issues, etc). The only sin was not wanting to move up further in the company - loved the job and was good at it, but turned down an opportunity for advancement th...

Re: Job Change and 401K

This is helpful, thank you!

The account has a little over 600K so the prior example was almost spot on.

Job Change and 401K

I've tried searching this forum and also googled, but still torn on the best course of action. Hoping this is ok to post. My husband is changing jobs and has the option to leave his existing 401K with Megacorp, or the usual options of transferring to new jobs 401K, rollover to an IRA, cashing out (n...

Re: What kind of Replacement A/C would you get ??

We're looking at the same unit! Are you comfortable with the noise it makes or is it loud?

Re: What kind of Replacement A/C would you get ??

@Rajsx has your new system been installed, and if so, are you happy so far?

We're going through the same process now and I must admit, the advice in this thread has been very helpful!

Re: How much cash in London?

Hoping no one minds my jumping in with a London and tip related question. Long story as to why - but I am paying 375 GBP for a car service between London and Liverpool. I've been assuming I'd just hand over 100 GBP since it's a 3-4 hour drive and I super appreciate that it is even an option. Is that...

Re: Thoughts on the new Maxima?

I've looked at the new Altima's and really don't like them at all - the inside (even of the highest model) feel cheap inside compared to my current version and the car in general feels huge (as in too large for me). Despite being pretty much the same dimensions the Maxima feels smaller (or closer in...

Thoughts on the new Maxima?

I used to consider this a large, boring, grown-up sedan but the current model (and upcoming 2019 version) are so sporty and beautiful! Considering trading in my 2007 Altima for one, wondering if anyone has one or has any thoughts on the model. I've seen a lot of great comments on Honda's and Toyota'...

Re: Help with 401K investments

Argh, I had the numbers formatted beautifully and no matter what I try it smushes together. Understand if no one is willing to look at that.

Help with 401K investments

I had thought my 401K with Fidelity had been doing ok and then just checked in to see that my average return rate for the year is just over 1%. I realize the market has been up and down but really thought I'd be doing a LITTLE bit better then that (my 2017 rate of return was 17%, not that I expected...

Re: Life Balance of spending and saving

I finally created a login just to respond to this post. :) I grew up with a pool, I'm the oldest and my dad loves to talk about how it was finished the day I was born. It was pretty much our daily activity in warm weather while I was a child, this continued pretty much throughout high school. As a t...

Re: Neighbor recently burgalerized - Suggestions for home security

At increasing levels of security. Security cameras with red blinking LED lights, every point of entry, front door, back door, etc. This is amazingly effective. Nobody wants to be on camera. Motion sensor Flood lights, all points of entry and also each side of the house. Deadbolt locks on all exteri...
