"It gets more complicated when you take into account student- and other low-interest loans.  The interest on my student loans is lower than our investment returns (and is tax-deductible), so contra Ramsey, we invest while making minimum…"

"The thing is, of bad things that can happen, some are 3-4 figures (car repair), some are low-5-figures (medical crisis with insurance), and some are 6-figures (federal indictment, long-term unemployment).  6 months for us is mid-5-figures,…"

Penelope replied to T.S.'s discussion Financial Planning Book Recommendations
"One of the reasons I like Olen's book, is it points out things like Ormon's waffling on emergency funds* and how much more you'll pay in interest if you follow Ramsey's advice. *Raising a broader issue, this is a bad term for…"
