I'm about 23,000 in debt to 4 loans.  I'm wanting to pay them of as fast as I can, but will paying them off as fast as I can pass up opportunities?  I'd say my net income is below 20,000.  I make…Continue

"Well, her yelling at you in a public setting about company policy is pretty unprofessional, especially in front of other co-workers.  If anything, she probably took offense to you keeping tabs on her showing up late and leaving early.…"

"that's what It says in the book.  Get to 1k (1.3k probably in a newer addition) as fast as you can, then pay down your debts as fast as possible.  Then, afterwards, pay in until you reach 5k, and start saving as fast as possible."

Certain Co-workers seem to not care, and at times you are affected by piss…See More

"Whatever you are making, convince yourself you are making half of that and budget accordingly.  If you make 70K, budget for $35K.  After insurance, taxes, and many other fees, takehome is pretty much half anyway.  At least put 10% a…"
