Re: There's a big difference

Ya think ? I still don't understand the obsession with riding a bike in tight circles when you could spend the time on a wonderful ride. Maybe I've been altered by living at near 7000 ft ?

Gave them the tools

I am a terrible mother but I have no desire to make my adult children rich. I gave them a good start on life but I am spending on me these days. I also didn't force any saving/spending on them. It was a good thing to make a few mistakes when young.

Re: Legacy Investing

I think you could also set up a per stirpes educational trust for children that flows to grandchildren if the children don't use it for college and so on down the line.

Re: Life insurance

If you are counting on the income from each of you, you need insurance(and I recommend term for the minimum term of having kids at home) to cover the loss of that income. Generally term insurance is cheap if you are healthy.

Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

Tipping each night instead of at the end, distributes the tips to those actually cleaning the room and may obtain better service for the rest of your stay.

I'm not sure what better service entails - it's either cleaned or it isn't. [more]

Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

I don't tip except when I spend multiple nights at the Fairhaven Village Inn in Bellingham, WA. It's been a regular stop a couple of times a year for multiple years and I know the people there.

Most of my Marriott stays are single nights and [more]

Re: Budget has been blown away by new costs/debt

You posted here because you didn't like the advice you got on the other board. You are still in denial about how you got where you are. It is oblivious to have 9 months to plan for the child care for a second child.

How did you not know what would happen to the day care costs when you decided to have another child ? Do you have access to a child care flex account and have you compared the benefit of using that vs the child care tax credit?

Re: buying 102? a

Open houses are dependent on location. I wouldn't ever have one because, for the most part, they are for a realtor to pick up other clients. People who are truly interested in buying a house set up a showing.
