Don't freak out

Staff Reports's picture

Q: I started my own small bakery from home two years ago, providing wedding and specialty cakes. I just found out I’m pregnant, and while my husband and I are really excited about the baby, we’re worried about how we’ll handle things after the baby is here. We both work long hours, but we don’t make a lot of money.

Q: I live in Pennsylvania, and I’m accepting a new job out of state. My wife and I will be in this new area for at least two years, and we’re not sure if we should rent or buy a house.

No need for professionals

Q: My wife and I moved to Washington, D.C., about a year ago, and we’d like to put our old place in North Carolina that we’ve been renting on the market. We’ll be asking around $140,000 for it, so do you think we should consider professionally staging the home?

Cash wedding on a budget

Q: I’m getting married soon, and my fiancée and I together have saved about $9,000 for our wedding. Right now, we’re doing really well on our budgets and almost always have money left over each month. Should we use the extra money to continue paying down our debt, or is it okay to use it for a few wedding incidentals?

The best of the three

Staff Reports's picture

Q: I’m 61 and on disability, but I’m completely debt-free and I have more than $1 million in assets. I even try to spend no more than four percent of the principal each year, so I don’t dip into it. I need to buy a better car, and I realize that I have three options — pay cash, do a lease or finance the vehicle.
