Not a flex. I had lost over $200k this year .. before this week. Yes, I am still not hurting but $200k fucking hurts. I read a lot on this sub and thought I would finally post something.

That's very reasonable and nice... But, paying that here is like driving up the back of a Wendy's in your Lambo, wearing a tuxedo, to just hang out with the guy giving head because deleting his app didn't forgive his margin call for being SPY would gain 100pts in last 5 minutes of trading.... And getting like: me and you are the same. Again, congrats... It's just an odd flex for this sub 😅✌️

You're saying that nicer things won't make your life better. But, upgrading your work clothing could signal to your employer that you care about your job. New appliances are more energy efficient. Not saying you need those things, literally using examples from my life.

Don't destroy your budgets, but think about what's a worthwhile upgrade and what's keeping up with the Joneses. $30 soap's a weird flex.

I read your post and your follow up comment. I use TOS for day trading options and while I do agree that it's not great trying to use active trader, I've set mine up in a way that's fine for me. I use the flex grid, with one big main chart to watch what I'm trading, then along the left side I have two small charts, and two small active trader charts. One small chart is for SPY, the second for VIX, and one active trader is for calls on what I'm trading, and the second is for puts. Then I edited the active trader to only show the buy the ask and sell the bid buttons. Using the color coded numbers really helps in this situation.

If you want to see a photo example of my setup I can PM you. Just let me know. TOS is great imo, especially the fills, so if there's anything I can do to help you stay just let me know.

right? The entire VFX industry went wfh and we're as productive as in the studio. Going to be permanent or flex office days. It will save studios a bundle being able to downsize their office space in expensive downtowns.

Also Top Gun 2 was heavily CGI'd lol. Silly Tom. Tried to pull an Andy Serkis.

Yes and a lot of major companies are keeping work from home or flex policies. What's your point?

Sure there is pros and cons to both but the reality is top talent are going to go to places that give them options and companies who want to be competitive are going to have to acquiesce to them to retain that talent.

The genie is out of the bottle and people have realized that it isn't necessary to be in the office all the time if at all for lots of jobs. Deal with it or don't but for me personally I won't work at a job that doesn't give me work from home or flex options.

> you get a Chase Freedom Unlimited

I don't really understand the point of doing this TBH. it's only $200 in the intro offer. I don't want to waste my application right now.

I already have Chase Freedom and CSP under my name. I don't want to add one more Chase UNLESS I am getting $1k worth of intro offer.

> You can also downgrade the current Preferred card (because it's unnecessary with a CSR in the house) to a normal Sapphire

The CSP is the lowest level card in that group. I will call them and find out if I were to change it to freedom, will they give me a refund on my $95 fee.

> Also in a few months you could make sure each of you have both a CFU and a Chase Freedom Flex, and take advantage of those sign up bonuses as well.

My main focus is to get cards for my upcoming expense (within 2 weeks). I don't think I will have time to wait a few months to get other intro offers, unfortunately.

> I live near an airport has a priority pass restaurant.

What is this? I have not heard of this. Do you mean the fruits and things they might have at a lounge? or are there proper restaurants that you can go to which will provide you with free food? We both travel often and would def make use of this food thing if it's indeed a restaurant.

Thank you again for your detailed responses! much appreciated.

Without a doubt this is not even an option. With your credit score and repo and current bank roll. I was in a similar position with low credit and needed a vehicle, instead I rented a car or Uhaul for about $30 a day, this way I could make it to work and side jobs like Amazon flex, door dash to make up the rental fee plus extra cash. Start saving.

Well, I don't really think old people have anything to do with it, nor are they to blame. But I'm not posting false things online... Buddy, have ya looked at the economy lately? And the amount of adults who live below the poverty line? And the federal minimum wage?

I mean, actively refusing to recognize those things is kind of a weird flex on your part, but ok

The travel credit will activate whenever you have a travel purchase. So if you have 20 dollars of airport parking charged to the card you will immediately get 20 dollar credited, and same for all travel purchases until you hit the limit.

If your wife gets the CSR, and you get a Chase Freedom Unlimited (which is a different card to the Freedom) then you get the sign up bonus for both the CSR and the CFU. You can also downgrade the current Preferred card (because it's unnecessary with a CSR in the house) to a normal Sapphire (gets rid of your annual fee and keeps the line of credit).

The current sign up bonus for CFU is 200 dollars, but it's really 20000 UR points. If you own the CSR, that means the CFU sign up is really worth 300 dollars. And it also means that the CFU is really giving 1.5% times 1.5 or 2.25% back. That is one of the best general cash back around, hard to beat except by cards that give large category bonuses.

Also in a few months you could make sure each of you have both a CFU and a Chase Freedom Flex, and take advantage of those sign up bonuses as well.

If you want to maximize sign up bonus that's how you'd do it. You're comparing the sign up bonus of a CSR vs a CSP, not the value of a CSR vs a CSP which is broader than the sign up.

The CSR has benefits that the CSP does not. I live near an airport has a priority pass restaurant. That's 28 dollars in food I save every time I fly (can always have one guest as well, which you would have). The global entry credit means a free application to get into the TSA precheck line. I don't use rideshares much but Lyft is 10x point per $. Booking through Chase Travel you get 10x points hotels and cars and 5x points for airfare. Keep in mind points are worth 1.5c, so Lyfts and hotels and car rentals are really 15% back and airfare is 7.5% back. You also get Dashpass as a benefit until end of 2024, and current Dashpass gives 5 dollars a month as credit. I think they also still give a year of Lyft Pink, which itself includes Grubhub+.

The Reserve can be better than the Preferred if you take advantage of its benefits. The first year benefits of a Reserve are larger than the Preferred, and after the first year if you want you can just downgrade to the Preferred. I myself have been considering downgrading my Reserve. But in my first year I also got those other Freedom cards, and in total I think my first year total benefit ended up being like 2000 dollars.

Another consideration is that Chase is very picky about giving out cards, they have something called a 5/24 rule which automatically denies people if they see more than 5 credit cards given in the span of 24 months. So getting Chase cards first means you can then churn the others for sign up bonuses, who aren't so strict.

You are only allowed one of the Sapphire cards. But you can be an authorized user of an existing Sapphire and also get your own new Sapphire. So whoever currently has the Preferred can hold on to that while the one who doesn't gets the Reserve.

The fee pays for itself if you use the card enough. 300 dollar travel credit, plus 100 credit to cover one global entry application (only one time per four years), the Lyft Pink membership, priority pass allows for the cardholder and one guest, and the sign up bonus itself.

What you could do is one of you gets the Reserve, and the other gets another Chase Freedom (Flex or Unlimited). The sign up bonus for the Freedom cards are given as UR points, and you can transfer UR to the Reserve in order to increase the value. I got my Freedom (the older discontinued one) and Freedom Unlimited both after I got my CSR, and it made the 200 sign up bonuses worth 300 just because the points are worth more on CSR.

Let's call the credit card issuers and negotiate your rate down.

If that doesn't work let's flex your great credit and take out a personal loan at a lesser interest rate.

Terrible idea to cash out a tax advantaged accounts that's so powerful it has strict limits on contributions.

My GF cashed our her 401k in her early 30s and now in her 40's with less than 100K saved for retirement - she is panicking.

I have multiple 1099 jobs currently (selling on ebay, selling on Amazon, selling on Etsy, driving for Uber, driving for Amazon Flex) and a full time W2 job. Outside of mileage, can I track any other expenses or since I have a W2 job and only do the 1099 stuff part time I can't expense stuff like internet or maybe a portion of it since I use it for my 1099 stuff?

Also do I need to keep track of mileage or expenses separated by speicifc business, or can I just keep a main log of this and just note that it's related to Amazon or Uber or Ebay.

Debt free is the ultimate goal. The dirty secret is 99.9% of employers don't care where you got your degree- they only care if you can do the job they hired you to do without being a toxic employee. The top best of the best law firms are really the only employers that where you got your degree is important and even that's just a narcissism flex for clients to be able to brag that they have Harvard/Yale/Georgetown grads working there. But that's only pertinent to the top 100 or so law grads every year.

Your good news is so long as you graduate youre going to be an engineer. This is a profession that you can virtually write your own ticket and are going to retire a multi multi millionaire so long as your wise with your money. The #1 way to be wise with money is remain debt free.

Listen to Dave ramsey podcasts. He'll get you jazzed up and working the process. But even bigger than the loans now is the lifestyle creep once you're an engineer. When youre making $120k right out of school youre going to be tempted to lease the $90k car and get a mortgage on a $1M dollar home and do a bunch of flashy things since "hey I make six figures yay me!"

But even making $120k a year, you can still be broke if you spend $150k a year. You need to teach yourself finance. Theres millions of hours of videos and ho w to's on youtube you can watch for free. Learn simple investing. Learn budgeting. Learn how taxes work. Learn.

Make plans today in your 20s that you in your 50s and 60s will be thrilled with. Because if you never learn about or master your finances you'll wake up one morning at 55 and have nothing saved, no retirement investments and $800k in debt wondering "how the f*** did i get here?"

One thing is to be interested and another thing is understanding. Not going to lie, school is not going to teach you how to succeed, but it will help open your eyes and actually give you some help in deciding what you want to do as well as a foundation. Although if I remember correctly, the most benefit I got from school was when going for my MBA and the courses that were case and simulations as they helped me flex the noodle and develop critical thinking.

There is no rush. Go to school after graduation and pick a light schedule with 2 or 3 classes in the fall. Get the general ones the first semester then start thinking about it and pick a couple closer to what you are interested in the winter. Then a couple more in the summer. But give yourself a deadline that by Fall 2023 you would have picked up a direction.

You do not need school to be an entrepreneur, but having it makes it easier.

Yes, that's literally what it does.

Taking a picture of a house or a car is not the same thing as owning that house or that car.

>the only value of the blockchain proving they own it is pure flex.

Ownership of some NFT's currently grants you access to other things, both physical and digital, so this is just a bad take.

  1. Pick one airline. If you want to have max flexibility but less likelihood of status and upgrades, pick United. If you‘re okay with less flex, but want status and upgrades, pick Delta. In any case avoid American like the plague it is.
  2. Get the corresponding credit card option that fits for you. If I was starting brand new I’d go with Delta, get the Delta AMEX Reserve, and link it to my Delta frequent flyer account. In Delta’s case, using the credit cards effectively lower the threshold to qualify for the status tiers - allowing you to end up with higher status (and better treatment) than you would have just flying. The Reserve card also covers the Global Entry fee (which includes pre-check), comes with Delta sky club access, and Centurion lounge access. Additional perks like a companion ticket, no foreign transaction fees, etc., etc.
  3. Get some kind of security clearance - whether it’s global entry, nexus, clear, or pre-check. My steer would be to GE as it’s more versatile than pre-check alone. Again, many travel cards cover this. (As do airline elite statuses… but I’m assuming you aren’t starting off with one).
  4. This one is optional, but check what lounge access you have through credit cards, employer programs, Etc,. Lounges are actually marginal inside… but you need them for delays - in which case the public concourse will be packed.

How are all these NFT's getting stolen lately if they're on this fancy blockchain then? I don't think I get the purpose of how this tech is supposed to be of any use.

Is it supposed to provide anonymity? Silk Road thought so and traded heroin for these weird, new Internet points and now the FBI has most of their karma.

Does it provide proof of ownership? Those fancy ape pics that for some reason people pay for are the same ones I can get for free from Google, and the only value of the blockchain proving they own it is pure flex. That's like the pics of my ex floating around on the web, she owns them but the creepy guy living in the next apartment doesn't give a shit about that.

I buy dlc for games for myself and my kids but only if it adds value, new levels or something, the only time I pay for pixel flex, ie; skins and whatnot, is when it's bundled with the game or other dlc AND it's at enough of a discount it's basically free anyway. A lot of people do pay though, so I see the value in selling them but as far as I can tell the current system works pretty good for that.

Full disclosure - I've been on Steam for 16 years and own 462 games and 374 dlc and never paid for a PC game before that, and they have a pretty slick system for separating fools from their money. Unless publishers see enough value in forgoing the Steam ecosystem for this "profit sharing on used game sales", I don't think it will work and all Steam would have to do is offer that on platform to make it an unnecessary work around.

I’m a few years out from needing to decide for certain, but my placeholder is a=1.5%, b=0.5 in the formula SWR = a + b * (1 / CAPE).

There’s not a lot of rigorous analysis behind that choice other than having seen that it was not quite the most conservative choice that Karsten profiled in section 18 and that its success rate was pretty solid. On an intuitive level, I also liked that it yields a 4% withdrawal rate at a CAPE of 20, since while that’s higher than long-term historical averages it’s pretty in line with more recent history and drawdown plan failures tend to occur most often with both significantly elevated CAPE and withdrawal rates of at least 4%.

With our current CAPE of 31.07 my spreadsheet tells me that I would plan on a SWR of 3.11% if I retired today, which seems pretty reasonable. Since I don’t plan to retire any sooner than 5-10 years (with a decade or so of flex if the market’s bad), all I use it for is a historical graph that shows me the $value of withdrawals I could have supported if I retired in that year. The counter-cyclical increase in allowed SWR smooths out the graph and shows me tangible evidence of my progress towards being able to cover my expected expense in retirement.

We have a screenshot of the original listing which stated:

This [location] view home has been given a modern facelift with sleek Kitchen cabinets, SS appliances, and modern lighting. Fresh paint inside and out. Light filled rooms throughout all 3 levels. Open concept living room, dining & kitchen with cork flooring, main floor offers full bath and 2 additional bedrooms, top floor master suite with sitting area. The 1050sqft basement features a large, renovated flex space that has been used as a bedroom/studio, 2 private entrances, a full bath, and a full kitchen. Use it as extra space or rent it as a studio-ADU! Pro forma rents: $1000/mo. Terraced and fully fenced back yard with shed and patio. Sits on cul-de-sac, minutes to [other things]"

This was the listing description up until the day before we closed. It now shows that it was edited May 12th. We closed May 13th. Everything else about the description is the same but the 3 sentences about the basement were removed and it no longer says anything about the basement.

The person we spoke to at the city said they called and spoke to the seller directly twice. Once to inform them that they needed permits for the ADU, and another time to inform them that their permits were denied and that they needed to remove the current tenants. It was about a month after the second call that the house went on the market so we potentially have the guy from the city to corroborate.

We'll definitely find a way to get it permitted one way or another. But you're right, we're furious. At ourselves for not looking into things, the seller for definitely being deceptive, and our broker and agent for not catching something so easy to find.

Why are you taking it personally?

No offense, but you haven't listed a single innovation - mass production of cars has been here since 1908.

The batter pack, high-efficiently eletric motor and software to optimize it have been a thing ever since hybrids existed - before Tesla was even incepted.

Are you talking about autonomous driving that stopped at Level 2 for Tesla, while other car makers flex Level 3 and soon Level 4?

I'm trying to understand - but so far I feel like your sentiment is based purely on what you feel and not what the facts are.

You can downgrade a Chase card to a no fee Freedom card and keep the points. In fact you have to since one person can not get a sapphire bonus if they currently have another sapphire card.

The Chase Freedom cards actually earn points even if they advertise them as cash back. In fact once you have 2 Chase cards you can transfer points between then. For example if you have lots of transactions that only earn 1x points on the Sapphire you should use the Freedom Unlimited card to earn 1.5x points and when you transfer them to your Sapphire Reserve card and redeem for travel those points get the same 1.5 cent value essentially earning you 2.25% cash back. Some people call having a Sapphire, Freedom Unlimited, and Freedom Flex card the "Chase trifecta"

i have a flex grid with 5M chart of underlying linked to RED, and another 5M chart linked to ORANGE.

in options panel also linked to RED, i have a trade grid chart linked to ORANGE.

in this manner, all i need to do to get my desired underlying using RED link and then i get the options chart & AT ladder in my flex grid is to click the exhange code next to the bid/ask price on the option i've chosen. once this is done, you can change strike by editing the number in the chart & you can reverse to C or P for call or put in the symbol field as well.

If you're trading spreads, you can use multiple symbols for the options with a "-" in front of the one you're selling. however, i do this only for charting and not order entries on spreads. i always use the order editor for them.

cullenlawton,

I'd be happy to help in any way i can. 93195's advice is great. I would also suggest you look back at your expenses over the past year, particularly for your utilities. Find out an average cost for variable bills like electricity/gas, water, and groceries if you can do the work for it. Either budget the largest cost in the year for those bills, or budget the average amount and have a flex category. You can save the extra money on lean months for discretionary spending.

I have savings categories that grow each month with the cash at the end of the month that I didn't spend. Things like travel, gifts, emergency savings, extra investing etc.

AZO has had some scary beats over the past 4 quarters. Goodness sake what a BALLER stock. I firmly believe having a high stock price is one of the best FLEX moves possible. Anyways, I might jump in with you on the Puts if we have a green Monday.

First thing I would do is make a ROTH IRA. Contribute the $6,000 max you can every year. I invest mine fully in VTI since I won’t touch it for 30+ years. Everything in a ROTH grows tax free forever. $6k at approx 10% a year - imagine what this number looks like when your 60…and it’s all tax free

Second, I would start a individual brokerage portfolio with low cost index funds. I personally like SCHD as my fund. Solid dividend yield, excellent dividend growth each year, keeps up or beats the broad market, and all dividends are qualified so they fall into the qualified tax bracket ( saves significant taxes). Having a dividend fund like this gives you flex income every quarter if you need it later in life.

Maxing your 401k is fine if you’re looking to bring down your earned income for the year. Honestly though, this is deferred tax money. I anticipate tax brackets will be higher in the future (more Americans have 401ks now… so I’m willing to bet the government will go after them them further down the road). It also messes with your social security income when you do retire (assuming its still around by then)

Just my thoughts 😀. You’re in a great position though. Keep doing what you’re doing and your debt low.

My company has flex Fridays. You can have every other Friday off as long as you work 80 hours over 2 work weeks. How you balance those 8 hours is up to you. So far its working out pretty well.

No. There’s nothing wrong with this and it hurts no one.

Im 40 years old and I’ve always rented. With the current housing market and my plans to retire in the next eight or ten years I probably always will rent.

Small landlords have generally (in my experience) been my h better to rent from. The large corporations often engage in predatory practices like raising your rent 20% or so the first time you renew because they know it will cost you money to move so to a certain degree they are holding you hostage. They also rarely flex on the length of leases. I had to live in a hotel for one month because I was moving in June, but my lease ended in May and they wanted $4500 in rent for the one extra month when my current rent was $1100. Many small landlords you can just tell them that you’re leaving in 13 months instead of 12 and they’ll let you go month to month at the end or write a contract for the dates you need.

Im happy yo pay someone else to take in the headache of owning and maintaining the places where I live. It gives me a lot of freedom and peace of mind.

I don't have the expertise to comment on "too many" or how many one should have, but I have 1. My emergency (HYSA) savings which is also my "surplus savings" fund once it gets back to at least 3 full months' expenses 2. A house fund in Betterment, time span ~7-10 years 3. A car fund in Betterment, time span ~1 year left 4. A "short-term savings" fund in Betterment, which I've mentally allotted to car as my next anticipated big expense, but will flex to house/emergency if it turns out I don't need it by the time I actually get a new car.

If I were starting from scratch on all this right now, I'd probably just do an Ally account with savings buckets for everything except the house fund, which would likely be a Vanguard account, but this piecemeal approach developed over the years works for me well enough.

This is just the first place you see this and it is all because everyone’s costs have increased by300-450 a month. People on a paycheck to paycheck budget with less than a couple hundred of flex money a month are finding out they can’t make their payments. They mostly aren’t smart enough to see this early and they are just the start. Even 80-120k in annual household income can’t usually take a 400 a month but every month. Every time I give someone a raise they get a new payment. The society and business push it. Amazon wanted to finance a $200 item for me. Unreal, this has disaster all over it.

I’m confused — it sounds like you are doing great. Is this just a giant flex in disguise? You could literally retire tomorrow off of your rental income and be fine.

Really no point of getting a HELOC when you make 300k a year. Just my thoughts.

RICK has multiple NYC properties where trust fund babies and coked up broker bros will go to flex with their monopoly money, they may have a share price downturn but will weather this storm. Also the economic situation may expand the talent pool to staff the establishments. RICK will be fine. 😎

You are describing an attempt to track spending. That is pre-budget work. I did that for a month to see what I actually spent on things, and then I set a budget. A budget means you can say yes to a lot of stuff, but you also need to have the discipline to say no. As another poster said, try using paper money. If it runs out, you have to stop or take money from someplace else. It will suck. But it sounds to me like you two don’t know how to say “no,” and paper money will force the issue.

You don’t need apps linking your accounts to track spending. Do it retroactively. Look at your credit card statements from last month. Stop using so many credit cards that it takes hours of reconciliation.

Your budget will need some flex space for minor stuff, but like other people said… car tires and routine vet bills are predictable expenses. You will also need some room to change things up, especially in the first six months you do this as you and your wife find out what is most important to you. Lots of couples come from different backgrounds. Make a common goal!

Elon could Khashoggi people with dirt on him at this point. Today’s billionaires don’t flex quite like the old school American oil and shipping barons.

That's why I'm glad my team when we started our transition back to a hybrid schedule came up with a set day - Wednesdays - where we would all be in the office. Then you can choose preferably one of Tues/Thurs or flex if you must.

So far most folks seem to be doing Tues/Wed.

I'm a fan of the hybrid setup. I get my remote home flexibility 3 days a week and I get collaboration and socializing time 2 days a week.

I did tell my boss before they finalized the plans that I wasn't against coming back to the office, but I was against coming in to an empty one. There's no point going to an empty office to then call in to a web meeting. If I'm going to be alone, I'd rather be in the comfort of my own home.

Clearly you haven't tried to buy a Tesla recently.

They are a little more expensive than a used Carola. Go have a little price check.

Standing at a gas pump does make you a moron. You should use the metal autofill latch on the handle and get back in your car and wait.

What a weird thing to flex about.

Lol. A stock recession?

No. This is called a "crash". The S&P just entered a bear market so we're just getting started.

The actual economic recession has already started and it's going to make the crash look like a joke.

People lose money, they get pissed. People lose their job and shit gets drastic.

It will be huge. I will be global.

And no one is going to buy a Tesla to drive through the wreckage.

Hopefully your clients don’t place so little value on you. Shheeesh. Paying a professional what, $5 an hour is a weird flex if you want to appear successful and professional yourself.

Honestly - once I broke 6-figures.

Sure making a cool quarter mil would be nice, but when you're in the 100s you'll live plenty well and still save enough if you're diligent and careful.

At that point things like vacation/PTO/holiday becomes more important, as well as flex time or WFH options.

A good management is important regardless of income level though tbh.

Yep, in the middle of that with a campaign right now. What was supposed to be a 2 phase launch across 5 platforms has turned in to parts of each platform launching in different markets at various times as creatives come in, 3rd parties with stakes in it decide to flex their control at the last moment, and quirks in platforms reveal themselves. It's frustrating, but at the same time, I'm pretty new so I've enjoyed the challenge as well as the opportunity to show what I can do. It's not something I want every campaign, but I'm certainly learning alot.

If that was your point, you could have just said that you make good money compared to many others such as recent graduates just going out on their own. Your flex was stating your salary. Also you’re 41 so I would hope you’re pulling a decent salary after being in the workforce for approximately 20 years.

Flex? We're in an affordability crisis right now. I'm just stating the truth that if rents get out of control, I won't be the first one to feel it. Can it happen? Sure, but is it likely? I don't think so.
