re: Anyone here use a budget app? - FinleyStreet
[quote]What do you mean by that? As in doesn’t let you budget for some future expense? You can set a goal to save for that[/quote] I'm familiar with how mint works.

re: Anyone here use a budget app? - FinleyStreet
[quote]I’ve heard this rhetoric multiple times from the YNAB crowd, and I don’t understand it[/quote] Mint only lets you budget for the month you're in, not the months ahead. When I think of a budget, I'm thinking of a 12 month plan, maybe more. It's not rhetoric if it's true....

re: Why do accountants often go by their middle names? - FinleyStreet
[quote]My reason is because I've always gone by my middle name but if people try to look up my CPA license online, they need to know my first name/initial.[/quote] This is the answer. You'll also see it on resumes for people who go by their middle name. It's pretty common....

re: Tennessee is tGoat place to be - FinleyStreet
[quote]Tennessee is tGoat place to be[/quote] Depends on where you are. It's basically 3 different states. Anything west of Nashville is a pass. Even Nashville is slowly degrading into an Atlanta cousin. It has a lot going for it minus being landlocked and most of the state being in the centr...

When that day comes we need to be all together on a grandiose SECR troll job. I'm not sure what that might be, but it needs to be amazing. So start thinking about it. Together. Forever. [img][img]https://i.imgur.com/KBYHeet.png[/img][/img] ...

re: Can someone explain to me how the stock market is at all time highs right now? - FinleyStreet
[quote]Can someone explain to me how the stock market is at all time highs right now?[/quote] Because on average, the market is usually higher than it was previously. S&P averages around a 12% increase per year. So you're more or less going to be at or near an all-time high a lot of the time....

re: Those of you playing in the pennies, how much of your portfolio do you allocate to them? - FinleyStreet
I'm way too risk averse to dump more than 2-3% into pennies. It's fun watching them go up, and I have no doubt AT knows what he's doing, but I just get way too much heartburn over penny stocks. It's hard to trust an internet stranger although I'm sure he's well intentioned. ...

re: Maxing out 401K early in the year. Pros/Cons? - FinleyStreet
Check your plan for language around matching. A lot of employers match on a pay-period by pay-period basis, not a yearly amount. They don't want to sweep out that cash any earlier than they have to. ...
