Re: Go check out (and answer) our first survey!

Same thing I do with every extra $100. Gas/Groceries/Girls. In no specific order or amount. My oldest daughter is 14 and my youngest is 10. They both have healthy appetites and are extremely social. Often, they are either out with friends or have friends over. I spend most of my time driving all of them from A to B, B to C and then back again.

Re: Curious: If you had $10k start up cost, What business would you start?

Bonnie Squires ·
WEN DEE I know when we lived in Florida we started our own produce stand. My husband would buy produce from local farmers. Than compare what he got to the store and be able to lower the prices than what the store had there prices at. We had a person drive 14 miles round trip just for tomatoes and onions. My husband was a good sales person because some one give him $20 and only buy $15 and the person ask for the change. He would say oh we got this or that and he end up getting the person to...

Hello, dear penny hoarders. How time flies! I have put off this twice, thrice, and I'm down 14 days. Then the reminder to feel welcome, or to welcome me to the community.

Hi everyone! My name is Deb and I live in the northeast. I am a retired Reg, Nurse whose entire career (almost 30 yrs)was working in gerontology starting at the age of 14! I have always enjoyed working and learning from generations past as their grit and ingenuity, along with the determination they showed that pulled this country through some extremely difficult times, just like now. As a nurse, I + my many co-workers found themselves in situations that we HAD to come up with OUR own...

Re: Mothers Day

AverageJoe ·
I was a bad son....all I did was sent a text to my mother this year to wish her a Happy Mother's Day. I was, however, incapacitated. So, I guess I do have an honest excuse. Besides, my mother lives two states and 14 hours away.

What's the best way to teach kids about money?

KellyFromKeene ·
I have two boys, 11 and 14. I give them a small (probably too small) allowance, and they will earn extra money sometimes doing stuff for my parents after school. Usually I make them do it for free to help out, because we all have to look after each other. Regardless, they have a bit of pocket money. I speak pretty openly (not totally transparently) about what I take home, and what things cost, how bills are paid, and how I save. It's a fine line though, becuase I have a worrier, and he gets...

Help with credit score

Robin Osmun-McGill ·
Hello, I was wondering if anyone could direct me or has any information about how to remove things off my credit report. For example, one of my primary questions is how to I get my name taken off a mortgage I have no title to, without costing me any money? I have been divorced for 14 years, and every time I try to apply for a home, a car etc..This shows on my credit score as on going. I have no claim to this property, but they want $1000 for me to be taken off. My ex won't pay for it to be...

Financial Fitness February: Day 14

Moore Income ·
I have decided to focus Friday's mostly on doing food delivery since it gives a nice boost to our income and it is also usually the best day to earn the most money doing it. So, for the most part, my day was spent delivering food, however here are a couple other things that went on financially. 1.) Bought My Wife Some Valentine's Treats While it is great to be frugal and financially conservative, by no means should anyone get to a point where we won't ever spend any money, especially on...

Re: What are your rules when it comes to relationships and money?

mintjulep ·
Well redcatcec, we both went through divorces and his was full of the trauma that writes books. Mine was adult and civil but I think both of us became pretty protective of ourselves....I stayed "single" for 14 years, my kids became adults and were out on their own by then. As most of us do, I witnessed what divorce can do to children, families, friends and finances and I don't think either of us ever wanted to go through the lawyers and all the financial stress again. We have everything we...

Re: Not having someone to bounce ideas off.

Jobelle Collie ·
Thank you for the ideas. I’ll be 60 this year, where did time fly to? When I divorced my children’s father, he required that every year I turn over accounts of what I spent the child support on. Our children were 7 years and 4 months old. I guess he wanted proof of the $3000/month he was sending. I opened checking accounts, one for each child and purchased carbonless checks. Every January 1st, he got a shoe box full of the carbons and I let him work out the numbers! I NEVER cashed those...

Re: Financial Fitness February: Day 27 (Took a LOSS)

I was feeling under the weather this morning so I didn't walk my real estate flyers but I rescheduled for Monday. Every bit of income I get from doing that I'm going to put in my Acorns account, even if it's like $20-25 at a time. My other win - I passed the first qualification stage to be a rater on Lionbridge. You can google them for information. I have to study for, take and pass a test in order to qualify. They said I should spend about 10 hours studying for the test, which is do-able. I...
