  • Re: To Tell or Not To Tell...?

    I like the advice in the very first original post. I think we do that for the most part. Only our immediate family knows our big financial picture, our our "go up" goals. We don't share with others, even close friends. Maybe just general ideas like "we'd love to pay off our mortgage before the kids graduate from high ...

    Rainy here, but needed moisture. Brought my breakfast and lunch to work. Dinner tonight: chicken thighs either in the oven or on the grill, will depend on weather. I have some sweet potatoes and corn to go with it. I'm caught up on laundry, sort of! It never ends! But did 4 baskets last night so everyone at least has clothes and we have ...

  • Re: how often do you go to the movies?

    I think it cycles. DH and I used to go quite often on movie dates, before kids. Then nothing for several years. Now that the kids are older, we take them to movies as a special treat. We've seen the Lego movie and Frozen (both matinees and at least one kiddo had a movie gift card). DH and I haven't been to a movie together in years. Once ...

We meet with our financial advisor this month to see how to contribute regularly to our Roth IRAs, our only other source of retirement other than our work ...

  • Life Insurance and your goals

    Hi! I'm reviewing our life insurance and just wanted some feedback from my DS friends. This is what DH and I have right now (and I know some will disagree, even I'm thinking we need to re-evaluate): 1. Work-provided policy ($25,000 for me, $30,000 for DH). No cost to us. Coverage terminates when employment terminates. 2. $350,000 in term ...

    Happy Friday! Shaping up to be a good day here! I work all day but may leave a bit early since DS has an early soccer game. We are eating out tonight after the game, pizza place with a coupon. I need to do a small shopping trip this weekend. I did a big trip last weekend so really we just need milk, eggs, fruit and salad. Weather ...
