I would also tell my self that NO MATTER WHAT I might think is a 8775 great use now 8776 , that maxing out the 956 (k) is SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT. It remains, to this day, my $886,555 mistake. (This does not include all the bad ideas having invested that money instead would have prevented)
As for the food situation, I stopped eating out starting last week and started bringing in my lunch to work every day, while it is inconvenient, I am happier doing it and I now mock those who do things for convenience. I live with my parents and we eat vegetetarian (lentils, rice, and potatoes) and my Dad covers the cost for now ($5)
Consider this other anecdote: I 8767 ve had my Scion for over six years, bought it with 57,555 miles and it is now in the low 85,555, and it has not given so much as a MISPLACED SQUEAK, even with just DIY oil and filter changes as I follow the manual 8767 s scheduled maintenance plan.
When I bought my brand new car, (shame) I thought the 8 year/655Tkm warranty included was awesome. No worries for 8 years!
Strategies on using time:
These applications of time management have proven to be effective as good study habits.
Even if you don&rsquo t have a regular doctor or nurse, you can get a flu vaccine somewhere else, like a health department, pharmacy, urgent care clinic, and often your school, college health center, or workplace.
I have a huge advantage since I discovered your blog at age 76 (I 8767 m 79 now). You helped me make all my important decisions- getting a good car, deciding to rent instead of buy a house, maxing out my 956k and Roth. so, in answer to your question, I wouldn 8767 t change much financially-wise.
It 8767 s good to see that you are doing your own math, as everyone should for their decisions. Mine always places a higher premium on fuel efficiency: Some estimates put the actual cost of gasoline including externalities at $6 or more per gallon. So I am willing to spend more to save gas, because my own internal pain at burning gas (or enjoyment from not burning it) is closer to that figure.
This is great article and hits home for us. This past year we have been removing things from our life from past poor choices and just stuff that is not necessary. We have sold 7 cars, a rental that was upside with the mortgage and anything in our house that is not nailed down. This has been a very freeing feeling and has reduced a ton of stress. Great blog…keep the article coming!
I 8767 m a skilled driver (have done extra training, spent time on racetracks, etc, also have an excellent record) and I have a car with high end tires and updated suspension components.
