Budgeting For Couples: How To Budget As A Couple | Clever Girl Finance

Visual Description:  Shedding the “monkey”.


Clue/Question:  They worked hard to get all their credit card balances down to zero, and it – – –

Answer:  PAID OFF

(Phew!  What a relief!  Credit card debt can be crippling.  I thought that some controls were put in place, back during Obama’s terms, that said they couldn’t charge such ridiculous rates.  And, I thought there was a cap on late payment fees.  I get offers all the time, where the teaser is 0% for the first 12-18 months, but then after that it’s 22.9, 23.9, and 24.9%!  Are they kidding us???  That is USURY!  The banks can borrow money from the Fed at 0.25%!  That is one quarter of one percent!  If you deposit money with them – in a checking account – you might get from 0.10% up to 0.25%.  Some online only banks pay somewhat better, 1.01%, but they don’t offer credit cards.  There is no way to quantify the disparity from the rate the banks borrow money versus what they charge their customers via their credit cards.  It is positively criminal.  But we all just seem to accept it.  What a bunch of freaking sheep we are.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve surely seen “rxyop” before.  I was able to see all the clue words immediately this morning.  The answer letter layout was a satisfactory seven letter jumble.  Kinda tough to make a two word, seven letter, answer challenging.  I’m sure that most of us got it nearly instantly.

I like how the guy looks like he’s in a white tee-shirt and boxer shorts!  Could be me!  And, how the wife is doing the online bill paying on her Pineapple laptop!  Yer uncle still feels more comfortable using the traditional keyboard and a full size monitor, that I can easily read!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Unfortunately Unc, the fees are generally high because fraud is so off the charts.. And “savings,”, CD, etc. rates are low because loan rates are low. Lose, lose!

    Worked right through this jumble! YEA! And good for them. You have to work hard to keep debt under control. LL

    As my shipmate debarked to shore, I stood in PROXY for his 0001 – 0400 watch..what a rough sail from out of the Suez to 20NM, 315°(NW) into the Med. it stared….the amplitude of the waves approx. 9.5 m from middle to crest…Oh
    Yea…Rock ‘n Roll {Hall of Fame, Cle…}…As I entered my stateroom(cabin) I was greeted with a few DETACHED items and some on a brief FLING from the none to friendly gale!!…I was fortunate to have rebuilt the FIDDLE on my table that helped a few things from joining the party*…I joked with the Captain saying, “What’s up Sir??¿…this sure ain’t the North Sea, how ’bout a course change¿¿?”…His retort, “You looking to be PAID OFF boy???>>>”boy” where are the PC PoPo when you need them¿¿?HaHa^

    I don’t know what “personal/family finance” gurus there are across the nation, but there’s a popular one in Atlanta that everyone should hear before he cuts back on broadcasts or retires.

    Clark Howard:

    He was popular on Atlanta radio, AM 750 WSB 95.5 FM, before he cut-back on his broadcasts. We don’t know, yet, if anyone will step into that vacancy, but we still have benefit of his advice on his extensive website and e@mail for the foreseeable future.

    I don’t think that even the amount of fraud can account for that much disparity, LL. — YUR

    fiddle: (nautical) On board a ship or boat, a rail or batten around the edge of a table or stove to prevent objects falling off at sea. ( Also fiddle rail)
    the raised edges of the square dinner plates used on board ships. The raised edges (known as fiddles) prevented the food from sliding or rolling off during rough seas. Being on the fiddle meant being given sufficient food to overflow onto the fiddle.

    That’s what found. — YUR

    Good find UR…IWC good effort……Sometimes when looking up a definition/info one finds something not pertaining to the search that turns out to be more important/interesting than the original object^…on rare occasions this later find may be life altering!!*… Such is life☆
