On Our Attempt at a $20-a-Day Budget

@theballgirl Being an adult and parent means you suck it up and do boring things. Especially when it saves you a bunch of money. No more whining when you blow money foolishly.

On GOOD ENOUGH Homes & Destinations: What You Get For $110,000

@kitekatze if it makes you feel better, these houses have got to be in horrendous neighborhoods. I've lived in Houston and a house for sale for $95k is def some place you do NOT want to live.

On The Most Expensive Meals We've Ever Paid For

@julebsorry It's just food. To me, NO way a meal is "worth" $800. Sounds like being treated like a rock star or "Someone of Importance" was more of the draw. And if course telling everyone you know.

On Cars, Houses, And other Millennial Milestones

@readyornot Used car dealerships make much more money than new car. Next time think about Craigslist. Yeah, maybe more of a hassle, but we've sold 3 cars ..one in a day, one within 5 days, and one on day 30. Got a much much better price than a trade in.

@garli Yes. The sales people have monthly quotas and/or "who sold the most cars this month" bonuses.

On Cars, Houses, And other Millennial Milestones

@Gef the Talking Mongoose Cash may be a detriment. They like making money off loans.

On Are Land Lines Worth It?

I suspect most older folks 70+ still have land lines. My parents don't own a cell phone (or any computing device).
