    Visit to Greek Islands

    I've DIY'd Greece. easy enough. used the ferries to go between the islands. cheap, quick ( if you island-hop), clean, etc.. take in the Aegen etc.. must-do islands Santorini and Mykonos but they are very commercial/touristy. Go there for the must-get pics etc, but there's nothing to really howl...

    4G 24hr uncapped VS 4G 19hr uncapped. Just an observation i made today.

    honestly the best most easiest thing to do....is trying to connect to his wifi :-) 3 doors down should be good for more than 1mbps... if you can, then give him your money! (or not)

    Soundbars vs Home Theatre systems

    samsung own Harman, who makes JBL. so its all similair tech some even say so. nothing beats actual speakers in the 5.1 setup or any x.1... everything else pales or just tries at best. those 5.1 amp and speaker setups by yamaha/onkyo/etc will outperform any soundbar in that price range. believe...

    How do you make the most of your money

    another good idea is to automate everything. debit orders + scheduled e-payments, etc etc, deposits to investment accounts etc etc. every recurring expense, recurring payment, savings etc. automate! Remove the biggest risk to your future: yourself!

    How do you make the most of your money

    I have some comments here. perhaps this is the one thread we can be mature enough to agree to disagree without getting into a cockfight! 1. debt > paying it off is not correcting the behavior. correct the behavior first. 2. I agree 2million% 3. I do not agree with this one. earn more money and...

    How do you make the most of your money

    There is ONLY one answer here: SPEND LESS! This has 2 effects: 1. If you spend less, you won't need a lot to get by on. 2. If you spend less, your "number" ( the figure you need to reach till you can live off investments) becomes more easily attainable, sooner. So you get out of the rat race...

    Cars - leasing vs buying

    less than we buy cars yes, but it was the lesser of 2 evils. there was no way I was going to let that car go for the yr/milage and condition it was. i was happy to take 10% less than trade... WBC was at around trade -30%, and the one dealer i went to was worse than that!

    Cars - leasing vs buying

    yea I also had them come past. I had the book values for the car, and they were nowhere close. admittedly, it was a niche 2door sportscar...so i was bound to take a wack i guess.
