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

Eh, I think I've fallen into a little rut.  Work is the same old same old, hours fluctuate, I'm scheduled week to week like everyone else, and it doesn't give you the best planning.  Most plans have…Continue

"I made the change from a dead end job to a career as an electrician six months ago. I love my job! I see different places every day, and there are new things to learn. It's hardly ever boring. The apprenticeship program is nice. I work and live…"

"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."

Looking into a new Profession: Electrician

I've been thinking about leaving the Pharmacy Tech. World and becoming an Electrician.  There are a lot of physical comforts, no heavy lifting, A/C work space. At times: Simple and easy fixes. Alright benefits.  Also, polite and grateful customers... sometimes.The downside?  Customer service: people not understanding their insurance and taking it out on you.  People dangling their health over your head to manipulate you. Certain Co-workers seem to not care, and at times you are affected by piss…See More

"That first savings plan is WAY too slow. In my opinion. Ramsey's first level emergency fund is supposed to be quick. Maybe a month or two, depending on your income and what you can sell. $1,300 over a year isn't much at all. JB"

Native Son replied to Dakota Caraway's discussion Paying off Debt
"Here's a simple pair of alternate "savings plans." 1. Go modest. If you start with $25.00/week, that's $1300.00 put away over a year. At least you've achieved Mr. Ramsy's first level of emergency fund savings. 2. When…"

"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…"
