Re: Landscaping question

I've done this - at a previous home, one area/side tended to have erosion and every 5 years or so would need a little work. I'd remove the gravel and get down to the soil. Then I'd add soil (either delivered from a company, bought in bags, or [more]

Re: How Not to be Poor

Pretty interesting. I'm sure that people's response to finances is a combination of education and psychology. The payment outlook is very different from the value outlook and that's where we see people overpaying for rent-to-own furniture and things [more]

Re: What color wood floors do you like?

In a former house, I did a wide-plank laminate (each board was a single board, not the type where one piece looks like multiple strips) in the bedroom. Mine was medium dark or maybe a little darker than medium - I think it was a mahogany, so darkish [more]

Re: Handling an increase in income

You might want to see if maxing your 401K contribution would lower your taxable income down a bracket. If you don't need the money for spending, it's a good tax-advantaged savings plus you can reduce current taxes.

I'd do house maintenance, [more]

Should we try an exterminator - mice

Sorry for the length. tl;dr: Don't know if new mice are getting in or if mouse evidence is old and mice are gone.

When my husband bought our house 3-4 years ago, he discovered that there were some mice - mostly signs of them in the kitchen. [more]

Re: Living through remodel - tips?

Thanks, Peter. I am not in Colorado or Washington, but hopefully we can find other stress-relieving things (tequila? xanax?)

I will try to think like you suggest in terms of things being put away. That may really help me. Having rooms full [more]

Re: Living through remodel - tips?

Thanks for the great tips.

Our house is a tri-level and with the entire main floor being worked on, it will be very difficult to seal things off. We'll need to walk through to enter/leave the house ourselves, and the stairs up (to bedrooms) [more]

Living through remodel - tips?

Our kitchen remodel is starting next week, so am looking for tips to living through the process and how to prepare so things go smoothly.

Because our kitchen/dining/livingroom is open-plan and we're having the floors redone, all those areas [more]

Re: Dressing up

I was looking for a dress for a recent wedding for ages. Very slim pickings. Most of the things are sleeveless and/or tank-tops and either far too casual or too bridesmaid-y. I did find some OK things in larger sizes at Boston Store, but I didn't [more]

Re: To all you moralists out there . . .

I think you misread a bit - she posted that she hopes to pay it off by this November (2014) and the that original loan term went to November, 2016.

I agree that if she is now doing well she should make attempts to pay past creditors [more]
