re: Fazoli's on Siegen Lane - Baton Rouge - Bayou Tiger
I used to love eating at Fazoli's back in the day. The food was decent but way better than fast food burgers. Unfortunately at all of the locations I went to the management sucked. It must have been a corporate issue. Fazoli's was on my poorly managed shite list along with Whitney Bank and Ser...

re: Home Warranty Recommendations - Bayou Tiger

re: Visiting with potential companies in person - Bayou Tiger
I work for an operating company in the oil industry and would say that stopping by in person is not the way to go. Anybody who you want to talk to is probably pretty busy and would not appreciate the interruption. There are enough calls already from headhunters and sales, with drive-bys from sale...

re: Which loan to pay off first? - Bayou Tiger
At what income level is mortgage interest not deductible? You can even deduct that with AMT (if a first mortgage on primary residence). ETA: Just looked it up and saw that since 2011, the mortgage interest deduction starts getting phased out at moderate income levels. I haven't had a mortgage sin...

re: Met a personal financial milestone today! - Bayou Tiger
Finally reached $1M net worth. Since I am not an OT'er, it was a long time coming and took a lot of sacrifices and saving early on. It sounds odd but with multiple kids and the costs to retire it does not seem like that much money....

re: What changed your financial future for the better? - Bayou Tiger

Parents matched 100%, so I would throw in $10 or $20 here or there, often more. It was worth over $50,000 by the time I finished colle...
