On Millennials Apparently Good With Money

Mike, can you explain what all of these things mean? I'm definitely doing some ultra conservative saving because I don't feel like I know enough to do anything else. I don't even know where to find answers! Don't you have to be rich to have a financial advisor?

On Some Costs Associated With My Roommate’s Boyfriend

@grog @grog I buy big 24 packs but they are the "double rolls" (but pretty much every brand is double rolls now too. So are we talking 12 singles or doubles, Hannah?). It lasts me, as a woman who lives alone, about 5 or 6 months. So thats 4 rolls a month (like one change a week? Seems about right), which would be 8 for two people. But these are the double rolls!

On Help, My Freezer Doesn't Work. Also It Is Not a Freezer

@OllyOlly My place is about 550 sq ft and it's okay for two! It has a fair sized storage room which is SO CRUCIAL to every part of my happiness. About 50% of the stuff I own stays in the storage room. It's got good shelves. I could go on forever about it. Storage. (And not getting too much furniture)

On Look At Your Old Self and Save for Retirement

I just found out that I can use retirement funds (RRSPs, maybe just in Canada) to purchase a first home and it remains tax free (also maybe just in Canada). Can you teach us more about that, please?

On The Cost of Keeping Fit

I'd be interested in seeing this for other sports, too! I got into olympic weightlifting, and the costs are pretty astronomical even though I buy a lot of gear used or ordered in bulk with teammates. Plus coaching is pricey. I'd say about $3000 in the past year for everything.

On Let’s Throw Some Money at Our Problems: January 2014 Check-In

Student loan, originally just over 20k, 5.5% interest. I forget the minimum payment, actually! I think $150? I paid $400 this month. Dec 31: 7,847 Jan 31: 7,483 Also, do you think it would be possible to have a different thread be "let's all save money" and this one can remain just for talking about paying off debts? I am really proud of everybody's hot savings but perhaps it would be better on a different thread?
