How to Save a Bit Extra on Car Transport Cost

Forum: Save Money
Daniel Moyanda
Regardless of the reason, if you need to ship your car, it can be a rather confusing experience — especially if you've never shipped a vehicle or have no clue where to start. Auto transport companies usually charge by the mile and there is no standard distance in which they will charge. The total cost of shipping can add up very quickly. There are ways to get a better price and save money with an auto transport company. Here are six tips to get a reasonable price and save money. 1. Get...Read More...

New to PH.com, but love it already. Broke my leg 2 months ago. Had surgery and have been recovering ever since. I was planning to get a CDL license before the accident happened. I am currently unemployed and I MUST start earning income somehow. I was thinking of getting a PT job until I can get the CDL, but my leg/foot/knee swell up when I stand on it too long. Yes, I can kind of stand on it for balance, but I do need to use one crutch. I do not qualify for disability. I am a senior lady...Read More...

How much job hopping is too much?

Dear Penny
Happy Friday, Penny Hoarders! In the last year, it's become really popular to quit your job. We see headlines every day about the Great Resignation and worker shortages. But what I'm wondering about is how much job hopping is too much? Last month, I received a letter from a reader who was fed up with her husband's constant job hopping. https://www.thepennyhoarder.com/make-money/career/husbands-endless-job-hopping/ He switches jobs every six months to a year, and it sounds like he has a lot...Read More...

Apple kills the iPod, but ‘yay’ for our wallets?

Forum: Make Money
Michael Archambault
It’s official; the iPod is dead. Apple has officially discontinued the last iPod in its lineup, the iPod touch, bringing it all to a close in 2022. We recently published an article on how much money some iPods are still selling for on eBay, so be sure to check in your drawers and your closets to see if you might have a few hundred dollars lying around (that’s always fun to find). On the flip side, I’d love to hear any stories anyone has about their iPod back in the day. It indeed was a...Read More...

Financial Illiteracy

Richard Martin
Financial Illiteracy is an epidemic problem in this country. We don't teach our children even the basic ways to manage money correctly even though money is the single source of living and being secure. I am a spiritual man that believes in God and His ability to provide, but we must understand that the resources we have must be managed with true thought and applied with basic understanding of living within our means, understanding compound interest, and saving for goals and emergency needs.Read More...
