After all, they can't produce any good players at all. Right?

Re: How do you define wealthy

The fact is I'm the only one here who has creative and substantive ideas on frugality and wealth.

Re: Maximizing my retirement account wise?

Good catch, though it looks like governmental entities can only offer a 401(k) if the plan was established by 1986.

Re: Maximizing my retirement account wise?

You're probably right, but it is certainly possible to get capped like that on 401(k) contributions. Not only could his employer place that cap; but he could get capped as a highly compensated employee in a non-safe harbor plan. Been there, [more]

Re: How not to change a light bulb

One way to get a broken light bulb out is to use a soft rubber ball. Just jam the ball onto the broken glass and twist. It actually works sometimes.

Re: How do you define wealthy
