About Me
Medically retired.
Why I Joined
To keep track of my net worth. I don't include the value of my home ($415,000) because it doesn't generate income.
Best Financial Decision
Getting my degree when tuition was $184 a semester. I don't know how kids do it now. That college has become out-of-reach for so many is a national disgrace.
Worst Financial Decision
Not having had adequate life insurance on my late spouse. Sometimes you need to force those difficult discussions with unwilling family members.
Current Investing Strategy
Current strategy is to hold my breath and a lot of cash in the hope that a Republican controlled Congress under Trump will not gut Medicare and Social Security.
How do you manage your finances?
I avoid debt and live below my means. Aside from the occasional home improvement project, I'm just naturally not much of a spender.
What tools do you use?
Quicken
Favorite Books
"Your Money or Your Life" by Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez and "Investing in Four Hours" by Robert Bradley.
