I don't have cable, don't want it.
I do have DSL and am happy about the cost @ $28/mo.
I have a prepaid phone... of the Blackberry variety. I pay $25 every 90 days to retain my account balance. I can call, text, and get web. The cost per use is higher than if you had unlimited usage, but for me, in the long run...more
If Boomers have any sense, they will be investing in dividend paying stocks. Take the dividends, leave the priciple alone as long as possible... and since one never knows when the end will be, the smart move is don't touch principle. Save for that emergency, then touch as little as possible.

It's the economy, stupid.

Can I ever come back.... Good Lord! Even if you're planning on renouncing US Citizenship, you can come back if you can a...more
Something about the 401Ks that doesn't get mentioned.
The encouragement of 401Ks and IRAs by the government brought a lot of money into the stock markets that would not have otherwise been in. It didn't seem like the stock market. At first they seemed like savings accounts. Loads of people understand that the stock...more
I've never understood why people seemed to think that 401Ks would work for any but the people who really didn't need them in the first place.
