Nicole over at Rainy-Day Saver talks about having to adjust to a new mortgage payment. A lot of people forget that property taxes and insurance aren’t fixed cost items and can fluctuate from year to year. When there is a change your mortgage company is going to adjust the amount you pay to compensate. This was a good look at how it can affect you.
Ace from Ace of Wealth is pondering whether or not he really needs two cars. Personally we couldn’t live without both cars in my home. There is no certainty as to when my wife will get off work and we both have to be able to pick up the kids at any time. If it wasn’t for that we would probably be able to swing it.
Johnathan with Christian PF talks about how he handles occasional expenses. A key point he makes is how our personalities play into how we handle our finances. As an introvert I tend to try hard to hold on to everything I get and I know some outgoing people who love to buy.
