Re: A Mop?

the best mop is the israeli mop which is a floor squeegee with a mop cloth. those mop cloths are hard to find in the usa however. in any case, those mops are generally paired with water buckets you just throw on the floor, which is tile over a concrete base: the floor has a drain! so you squeegee a...

A Mop?

Anyone have an opinion on the best all around mop I should buy to mop my wood floors? I'm going to use water and vinegar to mop the floors after sweeping.

I'm not sure if I should buy one of those typical mops in Walgreens or get something that lasts longer?

Anyone got an opinion?

20 Digit Mailing Code?

I want to stop receiving mutual fund reports in the physical mail.

How the heck do you find this mysterious 20 digit mailing code they are asking for? I cannot find it anywhere?? I've looked at two pieces of my incoming mail and don't see it anywhere....

Re: How to Manage Junk Mail?

thanks everyone.....

Depending on the price, the service I listed is very tempting.....They shred everything for you and over time you just receive what you want!!

I read somewhere once where the average human spends over a year of their life going through junk mail?

Re: Who Here Uses DRIPs?

DRIPs are a tax mess when selling in taxable because of needing to keep track of the cost basis. This depends on your setup: FIFO, LIFO, averaging, etc. It's relatively easy if you're dumping your entire position---but you might not want to do that. Otherwise, you need to determine which shares are...

Re: Who Here Uses DRIPs?

I like them in dividend growth situations, such as Fortis (utilities) or CIBC bank (sorry for Canadian examples) to minimize fees and grow the position over time. I don't like them in REITs or a similar, high-yield, investing for income stock. I don't see as much of a benefit here as you tend to tr...

Who Here Uses DRIPs?

Anyone here utilize DRIPs? I'm thinking of starting a few because of the low/no fees and automatic investment of dividends to purchase more shares over time. I'm talking about typical DRIP champions over history like JNJ, KO, K, CLX, MMM, WMT, etc. Do you like them? or Why Not? Most of my money is i...

Re: ERE Cooking for beginners

The ERE book talks about a strategy to reduce cooking cost. The basic principle is to go from ingredients to recipe as opposed to buying ingredients for a recipe. Try to buy mainly unprocessed foods, and buy staples such as rice, beans, lentils, and pasta in bulk. If you cannot live without meat, t...

Catch 22 with Bond Funds

I'm looking for some thoughts on this.... We all know that owning TLT or EDV right now is probably a losing proposition with interest rates going up and the price of EDV/TLT going down in the future years. So a lot of people say it's stupid to buy into long term bonds right now...And they don't feel...

one could say VTSAX already gives you exposure to Emerging because of the global nature of large corporations. I would simplify the portfolio more.

To clarify; I'm not against cash, and I'm not smack-talking Harry Browne. I just think that so much uninvested capital is wasted opportunity. No worries! I'm admittedly a cash fan. :mrgreen: Just a small nitpick -- in the PP, cash is not uninvested money under the mattress. It's an investment in go...

Why no cash?
Just because a 3 part has better performance historically and I don't need the cash in that part of my overall portfolio.
