Auto insurance rate reduction by SlinkyToy
I've been playing SAHM since I was laid off at the end of last August. My DH retired at the end of May. It occurred to us yesterday to call our auto insurance carrier and report our changed status. Neither vehicle makes a daily commute now, although we do take the boy to school every day and...

Frugal IRA = Roth conversion? by dnrg
Has anyone here made a conversion to a Roth IRA this year with stocks and their indices being as low as they've been? What did you pay in taxes, e.g. what type of taxes? I'm a grad student with a miserly assistantship, so my present income is nearly zilcho. Effectively zero after deductions for the...

Boxed red wine - good brand? by dnrg
I occassionally enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, but don't drink frequently enough to justify opening a bottle of wine, just to have it go bad. Recorking doesn't seem to preserve it long enough and I've heard those air-pumper doohickeys don't work for squat. Anyway, I like the idea of box wine...

Is AT&T Nuts? by Mike Ballard
On Thu Jul 03, ChrisW disturbed my nap when he said: a grain of salt). AT&T did not go bad until they were taken to court many many years ago because it was said it was a Monopoly, which it was, no argument there. But you know just because there is a monopoly does not mean that is a bad...

Portable Mortgage on a Refinance? by Beachcomber
Has any one heard about the new "portable mortgages" that allow you to move up one time and purchase a different house while keeping your interest rate locked? There is some limited info on these on www.bankrate.com, but I haven't found a company that will do a refinance with a "portable...

Nick Pine! by JazzMan
You seem pretty versed on energy topics. I have a question for you that you might be able to answer. It's a strange one, though. How much photovoltaic generating capacity do you think could be bought for, say, a billion dollars? Just looking for rough order of magnitude...

Best sources for pricing a used car to sell? by dnrg
I'm getting rid of my 2002 Toyota Corolla to buy an old Geo Metro. More economical and would meet my needs fine. I understand Toyotas hold their resale value pretty well, but I'm wondering where some good online sources would be for researching what my model of car (with 30,000 miles on it) would...

Need advice on whether to consider a mortgage refinance by Otis McNatt
I have a mortgage, but this is an area of life that I'm not much up on. I heard a bit on a consumer show yesterday about (and I think I got this right) a "no closing cost home equity refinance." A woman caller asked about this and the host said she should consider one; and her situation was that...

Furthermore.... by Andy in Fink
If the timer only uses 4 watts (like an electric clock), its electricity costs about $4/year... Nick A timer to control a hot water heater could need to be a model that has heavier contacts than most cheaper versions, otherwise the contacts would burn out.
