re: Treasury notes - Kreg Jennings
There is a major problem with this approach. You need to find a monetary instrument that outpaces inflation. Typical inflation is 2.5% - 3.0% a year.

re: Anyone get prescriptions filled at Costco? - Kreg Jennings
From my experience, Wal Mart is WAY cheaper than Wal Greens. Not sure how Costco stacks up. But I would take the time to call and ask about your specific prescription and how much it will cost you out of pocket. I've saved a ton with a little effort. ...

re: Which Mutual Fund Categories are Out of Favor? - Kreg Jennings
I'm a believer in diversification. It's not fancy, but it works. Divide up your allocation between Large Cap Value & Growth, Mid Cap Value / Growth, Small Cap, etc. Leave room for 10% or so in international funds. Then put as much as you can into it right away. Profit. ...
