Re: DIY Auto Detailing Products

I recently settled on the Car Guys Hybrid Wax Sealant for my car. I use the paste twice a year and the spray every now and then in between. I have a tree near where I park that this time a year that drops sap and pollen all over my car. After using many products over the years like Meguires, Griots,...

Re: Anybody here pay less than $40 a month for home internet and with what company?

I am in Chicago IL and pay $39.00 a month through Comcast for their "blast" plan and I own my own modem/router. This is the regular price and not a promotion that I have been paying for a few years now.

Re: Air Purifier

I have the Rabbit Air Minus A-2. I have had it for eight years now. It works well and has exceeded all of my expectations. It requires a once a year filter change at a cost of $60 for the aftermarket or $85 for the OEM filter. There are different filters available to combat specific items you may wa...

Re: Xfinity mobile

I've been with Xfinity mobile for just over a month now and have been very happy so far. I switched from Verizon and Xfinfiy uses their network so no difference at all to report. First bill for 1 gig of data was $14.44 with taxes and fees. I was holding my breath waiting for the catch but its all as...

Re: What NON-frugal thing did you do today?

I used Instacart to get a few items from Costco so I didn't have to go myself. I justified this with the use of a $10 off coupon and free delivery they emailed me. I ended up giving the entire coupon amount to the delivery driver after seeing how busy the store was according to Google and how long i...

Re: Xfinity cost comparison?

I pay $39.00 monthly for Comcast's Performance Internet (200 Mbps) in Chicago. I have my own modem to save on the fees. I stream all of my tv viewing and have been very happy with the lower tier speed option.

Re: Taxable account

I found all of this interesting. Does anybody have an example or a link to an article on what the potential tax impact for let's say $10,000 U.S. of FZROX vs ITOT in a taxable account? In my taxable account I am looking to hold one broad based U.S. Stock index and have currently been keeping a tiny ...

Re: Kindle/Paperwhite -E Reader

Hello, I have had a Kindle since they came out. I currently have the newest Kindle Paperwhite. To be truthful I'm not a big fan of the newest model. The new screen has a bit of a glare to it and the battery life is not very good. I thought it was a plus to have a Kindle that is waterproof but unless...
