Re: Bogleheads with $100K+ MSRP cars?

Re: Vanguard site is crashed now?

What an embarrassment for Vanguard. If they're going to be boasting about the trillions of dollars invested with them, they probably should make sure they can handle that traffic when the rubber hits the road.

My walk away no questions asked number is 5M, but I'd really like to also have enough SS credits banked so as to not leave $ o...

Re: Net Worth now = $0!!

Congratulations! Many of us here have felt this same freedom you are feeling now. I have the same thoughts of gratitude toward this forum and its contributors. My advice going forward is to break the knob off of your hedonic treadmill with the speed set to "1."

Re: Should I purchase retirement home with in-laws?
