Re: So, Wow

Why are you funding your mother's long term care? That is a sacred obligation. I'd bankrupt myself before I neglected my mom. Good for you. Isn’t that what we are supposed to do for our parents? However, would it be possible to move her in with you if she is not severely disabled or ill and have a ...

Re: USAA has lost its way.

USAA is now requiring that you tell them your net worth, income, sources of funding for each bank account, uses of money for each account. They (supervisor) claim they need this information to comply with the patriot act. The patriot act was 2001 vintage USAA must be slow on the uptake. If you do n...

This year I am trending to make over 20% more than last (approx $130-$140k gross) and for the first time in my adult life I am finding out I may push against limits to IRS contributions, and have limited tax benefits due to...

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

I need to know what kind of furniture people are buying for 40k. Serious question because I have filled up a 3,000 SF house full of furniture for like 8k. But I don’t like a lot of extra stuff. How much house are you buying and where do you buy this furniture from? $40k? If I were to hit $40k, I'd ...

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

While part of me wants to ask if this is a serious questions, assuming you are being serious, it seems you are more than fine. I don’t understand what an additional $135k - $175k ontop of the $4.3 million you already have is going to do for you. Security and optionality, mostly. I'd like to have $6...

Re: Share your story of how you got wealthy

1) marry the right partner I disagree. There is no way to know if your partner will remain financially sound, and the odds are against you. Past performance is no indicator of future results. It is almost like saying make sure if you’re buying individual stocks to buy one that will go up. Instead, ...

Re: Late Starters

Can I revive this thread? Starting now at 41. Was in a bad marriage with a spendthrift husband that just spent and spent all my money. Would get into huge fights with me anytime I brought up a budget and saving. And to top it off, refused to work. Wanted to be his own boss and not “work for the man”...
