@cherrispryte that's unfortunate. And dumb.
So great, I love this website. Follow-up on this point: "The first two things you should be doing is paying off your debt, and starting an emergency fund[.]" Let's say I have $800 extra at the end of every month (haha!). And let's say I have, oh, about a condo's worth of debt, and just burned through my emergency fund during a long spell of unemployment. What proportion of my extra cash should I be throwing at my (~7.6% interest rate) student loans, and what should I be stocking away in my ING/Ally savings account? Thoughts, smart people?
@cherrispryte yeah, once I started cutting empty starches out of my diet and trying to eat more protein, all my money disappeared. I HATE having to choose between eating cheaply and eating in a way that makes my body feel better.
