Hello, Community members! I hope your week is starting off well.
Here are some highlights from the forums from last week:
- For those of you with undergraduate or graduate degrees, was the cost of your education worth it? Let us know by taking this poll and leaving a comment to let us know why or why not. But act fast: The poll closes at 9 a.m. tomorrow.
- How much do you have saved for retirement? Check out this graphic, which gives a breakdown by age group based on data from the Federal Reserve 2020 Survey of Household Economics and Decisionmaking. Let us know how much you have saved yourself.
- Janet Keeler, a senior editor at The Penny Hoarder, and her husband cut back to one car from two. Would that arrangement work for you? Let us know!
- Are you in the market for a new home? How much are you planning to spend? Senior staff writer Robin Hartill (aka "Dear Penny") wants to know how much you would use from your savings when purchasing a house. Let her know, and read her advice to one letter writer who plans to spend 90% of their savings.
Also, a big welcome to our newest Community members. Please say hello and introduce yourselves.
