re: Which debt to tackle first? - GeauxTigers777
This place can be a broken record with debt sometimes. Life isn't all about who can have the most money at the end of the race. It's about enjoying it along the way as well. With that being said, I would focus on the trailer first as well. The 10% interest rate is significantly higher than a...

Scotland advice - GeauxTigers777
I will have 6 days (I know short time) to explore Scotland next June. We would like to stick to mostly scenic tours, but stay in some of the bigger cities at night. We will be renting a car, and we don't mind covering a lot of space. I am not a sit around a sip a drink while I take in the culture ty...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - GeauxTigers777
Thanks for the Ireland recommendations. Just booked from BOS to dub on aer lingus for 100,000 avios (2 tickets). That is for coach there and business back (12,500+37,500 each). Now looking at getting between Ireland and Scotland. Will probably fly Aer Lingus (not sure I want to brave Ryan Air wi...

re: Golf near Tampa - GeauxTigers777
Yeah. I am in the north florida area and have Sawgrass, World Golf, and a lot of other quality courses within a 30 minute drive. I appreciate all the advice from all. One final question. Is TPC Tampa like some other TPC courses in that it has great upkeep, but not amazing layout, of is it a nic...

re: Golf near Tampa - GeauxTigers777
Thanks for the advice. Do you know much about the world woods courses? I spoke with someone that played it in May, and they left unimpressed. Said it was slightly run down. Didn't know if they have begun to decline some, or if this was an anomaly. ...

Golf near Tampa - GeauxTigers777
Playing in Tampa in a month or so. We will play Streamsong for 2 rounds. What else do you recommend? Thinking possibly TPC Tampa, Lake Jovita. Where else? World woods is probably not on the ticket for this trip. ...

re: Div play?? - GeauxTigers777
I can take a little over 100% profit with MO right now, but I just don't know what I would put it in. I initially said sell at 50, then 55, now it is at 65. Return last year was around 18% or so. Not too shabby. ...

re: Div play?? - GeauxTigers777
Why are you saying get out of pm and Mo? Just secondary to their all time high? MO is one of the best stocks in recent history return wise. I have a hard time bailing. ...

re: How much to spend on engagement ring? - GeauxTigers777
Check out uniondiamond.com The value in diamonds is in the fringe areas. 1.42 carat diamonds, slightly less color (but unrecognizable difference),etc. The key is the cut/angles of the diamond. This is what provides refraction of light and the prism effect. If you get a near perfect cut (don't trust...

re: How much do you budget for entertainment? - GeauxTigers777
My spending is golf. I don't have a membership because my amount of play is variable, but in the last month I have spent $400-$500 on golf fees. I'm trying to cut that down substantially, but it's an expensive hobby. ...

How much do you budget for entertainment? - GeauxTigers777
My wife and I are redoing our budget, and I am just curious what other people allow for entertainment each month? For our purposes, dining out is a separate category (since we mainly do this together). We are planning a $150 a month/person while attempting to restore some reserves. I am just cu...

re: Interest Free Credit Card - GeauxTigers777
My only caution would be to make sure you can pay it off,or that big interest you now have on your student loan will start to look small. After the interest free rate, typical rates increase to 18% or more. I would hesitate to do this unless you have the money in the bank to pay it off now. I kn...

re: Moving Costs - GeauxTigers777
You can go on the uhaul rental website and see people and their rates. I found a guy with good reviews that would move things for $10 an hour. He worked like a dog for 5 hours and I gave him $100...

re: Investment advice - GeauxTigers777
I hear that often, but even if what I have been offered gets cut in half, I will still make a good living. I understand this is no longer the "monetary golden age" of Medicine, but it is still a decent living. I don't need an extravagant lifestyle. Also, if worse came to worse financially, I ver...

re: Investment advice - GeauxTigers777
You are 100% correct, and I very much appreciate your advice. I already love to travel, and I know that will only increase. I love what I do as a doctor, but I also love life. I think there is much more to life than any job. ...

re: Investment advice - GeauxTigers777
Yeah. Backdoor Roth is definitely something I would look at. The problem is at that point, I will probably be at my highest tax rate, so I don't know if the benefit is there. ...

re: Investment advice - GeauxTigers777
I agree on the dividend stock. I have some pm and Mo stock that was gifted to me 5 Years ago. It has done very well over that time. With i think mo averaging 18% return a year. My dad recently (a couple of years ago) changed his investment strategy to mostly dividend based in planning for retir...

re: Investment advice - GeauxTigers777
Yeah. So, I have substantial debt from student loans but not great income. In a matter of 3 years, that all changes, and I think I can okay that down aggressively in 1 to 2 years. My thought is to hit Roth hard, and then worry about student loans after residency (besides my $200 a month payment ...
