My wife and I have been shopping for living and dining room furniture for our new house the last 6 months, and let me say, I would have never guessed what a huge cluster frick it's been. Living in Houston I thought it would be pretty simple, there's furniture stores everywhere you look. WRONG. The...

In a pickle on this one. Tate is coming off a bad week, Ivory a great one. Bills giving up 2nd fewest points to rushers vs. Oakland who is worst in the league. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Ivory or E. Royal @ flex? - sneakytiger on 10/11/14 at 4:01 pm|
No ppr, 0.1 ppc league.
I hate Ivory's matchup, if that game gets out of hand fast they're forced to abandon the run game.
Royal seems to be hot or cold though....

| Money Talk|| Sales tax deduction when itemizing taxes - sneakytiger on 9/17/14 at 2:02 pm|
I live in TX (so no state income tax) and the wife and I have had some major expenses this year. We bought a receipt scanner that does a decent job of picking up and populating the tax amount in a database, so we're aren't having to manually key in each amount and we have a scanned backup in case t...

What is the MB's thoughts on this stock? This stock has been getting killed since buying up the old El Paso assets. It's traded below book value for a while now.

I recently was forced to replace my old HTC Incredible 4g due to a broken screen. The phone itself still powers up, but it's impossible to navigate, for obvious reasons. A week or two after having the new phone, I started to realize that I was missing a number of contacts that were stored in my ol...

I'm closing on a home purchase in early January and will be cashing out some long-term investments for use as down payment. There will be some significant LT gains tax when I sell, which I want to minimize, but also defer as much as possible.
My current plan is to sell in January - two questions...

| O-T Lounge|| Anyone still use Sirius/XM? What do you pay /month? - sneakytiger on 10/22/13 at 6:27 pm|
I pay close to $250 annually, ~$20/month. I've been kicking around cancelling it altogether since I mainly listen to ESPN and music that I can now get via free apps on my phone. The only thing holding me back is the NFL and CFB games, but I really only use it for that 2-3 times a year. Should I c...

From what I've seen quite a few MB posters say they will only pay cash when it comes to purchasing a car. What's the typical amount a dealer will discount for their "cash price" and how and when do you introduce that into the negotiation? Do you get the dealer down as low as possible and then play...
