@vanderlyn Are you suggesting that it is cheaper to raise an adopted child than a biological one?
@twofish Yep, keep 'em coming!
I only have mortgage debt here, but I prefer not to track the huge balance on the billfold. So, I'll highlight savings which is much less depressing. Car Savings August: $7,382 September: $7,882 Emergency Fund August: $12,000 September: $12,000 Vacation Savings August: $0 September: $700 Home Repairs August: $5,000 September: $3,079.40 Total August: $24,382 September: $22,963
@Slapfight congrats, that's an awesome accomplishment!
@Josh Michtom@facebook The author forgot about inequality when they can see OTHER children are its beneficiaries.
My employer completes background checks for criminal, education, and credit after a contingent offer is made. Not once has the offer been revoked due to credit history. It is more of sanity check than anything.
Excellent taste in beer!
Awesome job and never discount the fact that it is incredibly difficult to sacrifice like you did! (even if it is a luxury to choose to live on less than you make)
I've heard in several HR meetings of the cost of employee hospital visits reaching the $1 Million cap. This was a used as a reason to increase premiums, copays, etc. Specific names weren't mentioned and I did not know them personally, but I'm sure someone in the meeting knew the person that reached the cap. No one really thought anything of it and both employees and the company accept this risk in a group insurance plan.
Overspent my $100 budget by $7...an extra drink at the bar always gets me.
