Re: Obamacare Key to Retiring at 50

Did she have one of the policies that Obamacare defined as providing inadequate coverage?

Re: Obamacare Key to Retiring at 50

Re: Replace The 4% Rule

"
And while the 4% Retirement Rule calls for a nest egg to eventually go to zero"

Re: Sealing tile floors

For tile in a bathroom I would seal it 3-coats minimum with a mineral spirits (non-water based) sealant. Stuff is for some reason quite expensive.
