Quote: Originally Posted by acidicboy At least he is sincere and nice, which is waaaay better than knowledgeable but snobbish SAs from high end stores. I'm curious to know- does discount stores like Filene's have product information training for their staff?

Quote: Originally Posted by Mr T I also must report a zero as I don't wear a watch. Why bother when clocks are so abundant? That's like saying "Why bother wear a pocket square, since tissues are so abundant?" or akin to saying "Why wear a tie because it serves no functional purpose?" A watch is much more than the sum of its functionality. Quartz watches are inherently much more accurate and reliable than mechanical watches, and usually...

It also has tools to help force yourself to save if you lack the know-how or willpower (like easy automatic recurring withdrawals you can set up). We're not talking about building investment portfolios here; this is strictly emergency cash reserves. Therefore, you wouldn't want to put your emergency...
Quote: Originally Posted by thekunk07 i love people saying to have a year of expenses in the bank. where will this magically come from? It comes from regularly contributing to savings. I have about 6 months of living expenses in cash savings, that I'm aiming to increase to about 12 months worth this year. Basically, a certain amount is set to automatically transfer to my savings each pay period. So that's a no-brainer; I don't even count...
And I will gladly provide a "second chance" offer if any previous purchase offers fall through
