What is your boy? Am she solutions that day, Ramses Gauges, gang and paid off old mortgage has taken the boys of the Bmw status. They ran to your home, like you for joining us open ocean formulae to five five two to five AAA eight to five. Five truth to tell me is in New Hampshire, Merry Christmas to you, Tammy Brand New Mary, as the EU is well. How can I help
My husband and I started your zero based budget last month so beginning November. Some really this is our second month and we need to know how to budget spending and money that we've already say for things like we've got a new roof for getting on her house this month and are property taxes are due this month. My two hundred dollars a there's money was saved on peace or war. Might show my husband things that that, while we were again by deleting answered not to worry about it, we don't need to put it on a budget for going, I being a nerd things. I need to have it income of money saving than an expanse way on a budget for whatever were actually spending, and when I say we just added this, we want to do this. Right is no I'm hoping you can answer this for us either was finally just shows like you went to a killing class and he didn't.
But you can't do damage with our credit right so many minds yellow so that that you're going out you saw that I mean I could dive and I think the same way when my brain works, but I was formally trained in accounting and finance Academia show that that watch your brain and about rut forever and all he saying is all just what money they comrades jerked out and no big deal. You know and relax it's the same thing! If you to do an entry and an entry out, into the body that that's fine, but it makes you but it's not it doesnt. It's not changing the structure of the budget in its basic in order to put ten thousand dollars for the ravine and I'm on a project for ten thousand dollars out. Ok, one of these grants to encourage change. People's behaviour be more like whereby
spenders, so we're trying to get could be more, could be more savers and white noise, putting it in the budget and could make us be more small, conscientious yeah, maybe making array a written entry will make you'd die alien, better outcome, It's you know what you, because what you want to do is not is get is getting. Habit of not doing anything with money. That's not the budget. Case. You have got the money already so but if you want to do is an entry in an entry out? That's that's! Technically! Ok! and I found it does help you with the idea of getting the muscle memory of the practice of we don't do it lays down the budget we under these on the budget, and so, if we want to do it, we're going to enter it in and then take it back out, but It's a little different wanted something that saved up for a needless right check for that thing, so it's not the end of the world,
either way. So it's not in terms of our plan, there's not a technical right or wrong answer on this is just a discussion about why you do it one way and why you do at another. So it's not. Not the other way. The bottom line is you have the money you're paying cash, the event. You're gonna write the check you wait for some: it is not a safer. You ve saved up a bunch of money, so well done. Your job Elizabeth those, whether some Tyler Texas, High Elizabeth, Welcome Ramsay, show currently think for technical sure. How can I help I must stress that And I just wanted to advise us on and high or a tiny being investing in some on seven may guess that, should we not trying to invest- or in the time I possibly consider transferring money for traditional over the walk and paying the tax system and
right now, I am still only putting at fifteen percent until retirement, but I have some money set aside tat. I could do some other things, and so my question is this: kind of going forward is organizing any pudding or retirement at five will win over what I the traditional mind, your router? it's not it's not right or wrong answer her eye. You know I don't at its edge by that by the end of two years, you can be to have done both anyway. I hope that when you are wrong, you're all if you're all over the rocks now and out, You're percentages sure when you don't other. Ah they issue your percentages right or vice versa. If you have your percentages now, next year you're all over the Roth
the second for well over a hundred percent this year. What I've got ready to pay taxes on? I do that fifty percent of it, but my point is five years today. This is no longer discussion. We will have done all and you just work your way through? Neither of these things are done things. How old are you? I am only faggot, and how much is in only traditional that you want to convert to rob, that's going to create axis four thousand actually about ten dollar tax building right right, and you don't have an extra ten thousand above your emergency fund. Yet my emerging, scientists definitely on the six month slightly higher? But if I told you, I ve been to anything label that- and I have only about eleven thousand right. Now that I could have been broken something. Then your household another reminder that I am making out. Eighty thousand
so I mean you be thereby the year into all in one year. Your four thousand dollars. Yeah. I won't make for a barely make four thousand kilometers yearly out this counter, but I'm in twelve months from the left You will have easily done and the maid enough to do the Roth. You might not do this calendar year. Actually you could do it. This calendar year cause your taxes, aren't brutal April right now the difference exactly elevating, say foreground by April easy. If you don't mind, I have one other questions. Like looking Oh, I have looked into also went over and what could put in my four Owen, K and nutritional guy from my employer. Recently my employers plan does not allow it.
So I asked them. What would it take to make allowance today? Email, the people who were handling that with the american Fund and apparently it would be like the kind of dollars for them to redo plan no aloud, Captain I'm an assassin, company employer does not believe anyone else whatever be instant. Even during this question is five old over the traditional. Would it be, would have me paying the six hundred dollars so that I could, in the future, will know everything about. How much is it. Now the traditional way. How much is it? traditional fora, one guy you know wanted. I don't know. Those numbers up right now left leg on one may two thousand and twenty thousand,
my guess is that in the neighbourhood of a couple of thousand, maybe it now right now. What was an ordinary might move you enough to do by the policy for I wouldn't be here today. I just let it run it rose to have converted get yourself maxed. I shall certainly be doing everything wrong going forward there. That's what, if it's not on this army, were six dollars. Mathematical,

Just wondering what the gauge age the Euro credit, and so were thinking about this during my husband, which has some credit because of a credit card through work and If you have any anything like that, so I'm wondering do I hate the morning should go and his name and get the best answer and then to put me on the deed. Or how can we vote? Don't let it may end up that way, but you're not going to get the car We process in service from someone like a Quicken you're dealing with a monolith here who has only one system and process, and you have to go down their path only and that might not be the best path for use. That's why we recommend someone that's more of a traditional mortgage company that
Why has mortgage underwriters that'll actually work with you and help? You figure those kinds of things out in your situation. I'm gonna go and say you may we better off to show both of your incomes. And you would know credit, but you know what I would do not get in touch with Churchill. Mortgage Churchill mortgage dot com they have forces in Michigan and they'll. Be help you with this, and work is firm and give you the I'll give you upper level of service and a proper a customized answer to your situation? that's not one size fits all This runs down because there's a lot of different ways to run a mortgage the different ways in which its Orton, Jeff, someone who knows all the different mortgage the array of mortgage products. Then compares them to your situation.
Plug you into the proper thing and that that's why I die you know just getting your mortgage you know on the internet is not to begin to complicate a transaction by that. Why so there's some things you combine. I wiped click per Amazon, Prime and by some things, but mortgages probably aren't. What am I want to do that with eight thanks for the call Logan's, whether some Columbus Ohio Merry Christmas Logan. How are you I'm doing great about yourself better than I deserve. What's up loud I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place, so You need in our work and I'm in dire need of a new car. And right now I think you would know savings where only options are to either get us a car alone, or my brother gratefully offered me to offer to loan fifteen hundred dollars to get a small beat up car.
Are you commuting an hour to work. So, I met my girlfriend I university and she ended up getting a job I wish you luck, sir. I'm a nurse I got this job. I was actually fellowship in its internal Ohio. Shall we decided to split the difference in the dry and I wanted to move a little bit towards the school because she works night. So I'd rather myself, your eyes in the morning then hard drives there are long ship at night driving I can read something that happening so she's driving almost an hour or two, yeah she's, drive and takes up forty five minutes and how long should run our along with this insanity, go alone to the end of the year, certainly the school year on ice on working at a high school, and then you will change careers or change jobs.
I continue to be high school teacher, but I would defiling change location watch the car that you ve got now at the time thousand seven for tourists. It has joined in fifteen thousand miles honour and the problems in the build up quicker than the miles yeah. You probably run the wheels off that almost and what do you make a year right now and then a fellowship agreement. So I thirty hours at the high school in exchange for Jane hundred dollars a month, stipend and then three matters to us and that will be finished in the summer. She hardly make enough to pay your gas bill. Yes, I The budget plan that you put out of the budget though you haven't, I save about a hundred and twenty dollars a month. And this
five day week gave great Doesn't it but what Start with the premise: premises start with the the boundary the guidelines. The says we don't borrow money for anything ever peculiar stupid, but car. So, how do we fix this problem in your situation? That leaves you with only two options. One is continue to fix this thing in limp with it through May. More munch, when your life changes dramatically annually you know you just the thing you just keep duck. Open, Balan Wire and hold the thing together or The thing I can think of off the top of my head is that you take a weekend job and that money save up and buy you a thousand dollar fifteen hundred dollar car
which had been upgrade from where you are, but I know case, I'm gonna have you in debt to your brother or anyone else for a car. You ve, youve emotionally put yourself in situation here, that's untenable!. You ve made a series of decisions that are painted you into the corner. You emotionally have already bought a car and gone into debt, which is going to be a huge mistake. You're, probably gonna, do it it's gonna, be a huge mistake, Macaulay, shut. This thing up, you shut up Annabelle situation I'm driving a tuna fifty thousand mile car. So what I'm under his move? In with a girl on our from where I work. As my car's broken down all the time it I'll show you You ve made a series of decisions that have that have seemingly box you in the corner, And on the painted yours from the corner, and you know when you partners of the quantity of pain on your feet,
So this is gonna, be it you know. You're gonna have an unpleasant five months. I just don't know what level of unpleasant you're gonna have your drive an unpleasant car or you're gonna work like a crazy person all day Saturday, all day Sunday somewhere and try to me a thousand bucks as fast as you can put it with his car and move up in car a little bit, which is probably what I would do if I were in your shoes, I guess. It's hard for me to know, because I would not have made the decision to be sitting where you're sitting. Yeah. Well, I would not. I know I wouldn't have cuz I'm over. I'm not going to meet an hour for anything so on yonder, so many different things wrong with your situation that I am stumble, I'm sorry! I wish I could help. Russia could be more, but I dont think I fix, all that's going on here. But yeah in no cases day rams. You gonna tell you to borrow money for a car, so that leaves you
Options drive that piece of crap and keep it Pope Pope taped together. For three hours, before lunch or take some kind of weaken. Gig were used, work like a crazy person. The third option- you're not definitely not gonna, do, and that is Closer to your fellowship, and then when you are ready to marry this girl merrier, removing whether at that point and go live up their next to where you aren't, which minister that got much on gas and move The high school for five months and finish fellowship, which is probably the one thing that makes the most common sense. What I mean by wouldn't have made the decisions that you like to get to this point. That's pretty
Actually your best option: you'll. Never do it. That's probably the best option, thanks for the call open phones at eight hundred and eighty eight, eight hundred and twenty five five thousand two hundred and twenty five. This is your show.
