Yesterday’s Market Drop in Perspective

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

The 10-biggest drops in stock market history. I have noticed a couple of bloggers talking about yesterday’s 416-point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Then, this morning I see this article on the front page of MSN titled Should You Fear a Market Meltdown (titled in such a way to get LOTS of attention). […]

OT: Don’t You Hate it When…

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

you hide something so other people won’t find it and take it but then you CAN’T FIND it when you need it? I like this certain kind of pen. If I keep them in my desk drawers they get “borrowed” but never return. So, I bought several extras and I’m pretty sure I hid them […]

A Giveaway For the Ladies

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

It’s been awhile since I have hosted a giveaway. I was in my local Books-A-Million yesterday and picked up two copies of Thomas Stanley’s Millionaire Women Next Door. Anyway to celebrate the fact that AFM is halfway to 1,000,000 clicks (I should reach the 500,000 mark in the next hour or so), I’m going to […]

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

Remember the Dave Ramsey: Give up the 401(k) Match in Order to Pay Off Debt post from a couple of weeks ago? That post received some excellent comments, one of which was this one from a reader named John: What I saw my dad do was keep funding his 401k and still using credit cards, […]

JLP’s Question of the Day – Kids’ Hobbies

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

First, I’ll ask the question: How much is too much to spend on kids’ sports or hobbies? Where do you draw the line? I ask this becuase of this short article I read in the January issue of Money. This quote really stuck out to me: “In the early years, lessons cost about $20,000 annually. […]

How About a $.41 ‘Forever’ Stamp?

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

The U.S. Postal Service is kicking around an idea of a $.41 ‘Forever’ postage stamp. Customers who buy this stamp would be able to use it even after future postage-rate increases. I guess it is kind of a hedge for those who mail lots of letters. ‘Forever’ stamps will be sold in limited quantities. Once […]
