re: Best Personal Finance Books for Young High-Earners - LSUtigerME
[quote]Unsurprisingly, none of the responses to date address the question and are generally unhelpful.[/quote] I gave you a direct link to a LIST of books in a STICKY that is designed to answer your exact questions. Much to your surprise, you are not the first to ask for “Personal Finance Books”. I...

re: Best Personal Finance Books for Young High-Earners - LSUtigerME
[link=(https://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/money/the-money-talk-guide---a-list-of-major-topics-covered/50764525/)]Money Board Sticky[/link] There’s quite a list of resources and even list of books in the first and second post. I’d suggest starting there. 1st priority should be paying down that...

re: Recommend me a dehumidifier please - LSUtigerME
You won’t need a very big one for that size apartment. As mentioned, noise rating is important, and also water capacity. One thing to also consider is where it will be positioned. Some have front air discharge, others are rear/upward. Air intake is also important if you’re placing against a wall....

re: Car buying question regarding discounts/rebates - LSUtigerME
[quote]They are already showing me a $5k drop or with all the qualifying rebates/discounts. [/quote] Is this $5k with the discounts? You should get a discount off the MSRP (negotiated price) and then the additional manufacturers rebates. But most dealerships advertised price will include the ...

Will MSM take care of Nutsedge? I know Sedgehammer will but I have some (a lot) mixed with new Bermuda growth. The MSM is supposedly safer for the new growth and I already have it....

re: Best looking Outdoor Ceiling? Vinyl, V-Groove, Plybead, Other? - LSUtigerME
We went with V-Groove wood on the porches. Painted on front, stained in the back. Looks great. Beaded board looks a little to busy to me, so I like the wider planks. One way to break up vinyl without the plain flat trim is to use beams. If you put exposed beams, coffered ceilings, or like a wains...

re: Home reno questions thread - LSUtigerME
[quote]Current fridge (30” wide) fits in current space, but the current space is only 32” wide. I want to eventually upgrade to a fridge with water and ice through the door. Most of those models are at least 36” wide with the narrowest ones being 33”, which I could maybe make work, but would be a re...

[quote]1. How do I know if a wall is structural (Load-bearing) without cutting it open? I’ve been wanting to remove these seemingly unnecessary walls between the living room, kitchen, and dining room, but I am not certain if those walls are load bearing or not.

re: New Long Range Thermometers - LSUtigerME
I get y’all don’t agree with some of the restrictions, and while I agree with that, this complaint is a little non-sense. Trying to claim science and wrong tools, etc. The IR thermometers used are intended for measuring body temperature. They’re even idiot proof with sounds and color codes. Wh...

re: Another grass seed recommendation thread - LSUtigerME
It’s a little late in the season for anything but rye to really establish. As mentioned, it will die off in the spring so you’d have to reseed. I’m not sure if you plant a combination right now if that seed would germinate/dormant, or survive until next spring. In general, for your lawn I’d re...

re: Converting Bahaiagrass to bermuda - MSM/Pre-emergent related - LSUtigerME
Why use MSM vs Glyphosate? If you’re planning to seed, I’d want to avoid a pre-em. Most of them would take a few weeks or so before you could seed. And I’d think once you could seed, they are basically ineffective. So you’re not really accomplishing much since you’ll have nothing to “fill-in” dur...

re: Residential Broadcast Spreader - LSUtigerME
I also picked up an Agri-Fab spreader. It’s great and seems to work very well. However, I have a 4 acre property. 1/2 Acre is not really something you’ll need a tow behind. They are a little more difficult to use. You have to “calibrate” them a little more than a typical Scott’s spreader. I also...

re: Granite Tabletop Support - LSUtigerME
You should be a fine. A standard cabinet span is not much different. 24” deep and 51” wide is not uncommon. If the fabricator is not comfortable with that span, they usually just use some metal flat bar supports (such as for seating overhangs)....
