Great stuff! Take about using Vanguard for investments. It is run as a non profit company

In the USA you can invest and buy partial shares of a stock. Here in Canada it's not possible. You only can buy a full share. Buying several partial shares is much more easy and fast.

in current times, 20% is the minimum you need to qualify for a decent home specially if your income is low.

#8 is the biggest one. Interest rates can add up like crazy! My friend paid $680 to her credit card in one year in interest for only paying the minimum balance.

I will be 52 tomorrow. Other than college loans, I have never had debt or a credit card. I paid cash for cars and my house (yes, 300k$). I budget, spend with cash and debit cards. No I am not a high earner, but I am a high saver: I have always paid rent (when I had it), utilities, transport and grocery budget first, paid heavily into savings and then lived off of less than what was left. And yes, I had times when spaghetti and ramen were a staple, meat and wine a true luxury. Life happens. But delayed gratification is one key to happiness and that applies to many areas of life. Learn to tell yourself „no“ – and to accept it – so you can tell yourself „yes“ with no regrets!

On the topic of it being easier to get reimbursed on fraud charges with credit cards vs. chequing accounts: Someone once took $4000 from my savings account by depositing two cheques with my saving's account number on them. The name and signature on these cheques wasn't mine, and my bank doesn't even give out cheques for savings accounts (luckily, when cheques are deposited, they show a picture of them to me, so I was able to prove to my bank it was fraud). I was terrified. I didn't even have any money in that savings account so I was suddenly $4000 in the negatives.

its me again, nice pillows behind you (i love navy) and interesting how you sound as intelligent as you are!..I wish I had more intelligence..I try but its OK.
I drive a 2003 nice car…I REFUSE to buy new…today; 2018, it cost me $960 a year TO OWN MY CAR…that's my insurance which covers my daughter and most important like a AAA deal….but if I never drove the car out of the drive way…its still $960 a yr..if I use it; there's gas, oil and coolant……so what's important? a new car to "look at me" ego trips or a used car with no payments! YES A DEBIT CARD SCAM DOES HAPPEN but here's how I dealt with it. 3 times, a dishonest person tried to use my debit card back east…I live in California…my Bank fixed it fast but that's only because I have never kept $ in the bank….It goes in, I pay my few low bills and take it all out…….so its always super low and the bank can see it…that's my semi proof that I wouldn't buy a hotel in Michigan on a trip knowing I have $20 in the bank……..nor would I have enough to buy a ticket..I keep my $ OUT OF MY BANK

I only advise people to put down 20% on a house purchase to beat PMI. I haven’t had a credit card 20 years. Those rewards cost too much to earn.
