Measure twice, cut once

I came across a blog this morning run by a twenty-something soon-to-be-graduated college student. He wrote a great post on what he currently does with his money and outlines some of his post-graduation plans. It’s rare to come across a 20-year old who thinks about money management let alone investing. He asked for some suggestions and advice on how he could do things differently, so I offered a few suggestions. I thought this might help someone else, that’s why I’m posting my recommendations here.

In the world of personal finance, there’s two schools of thought when it comes to Dave Ramsey–you either love him or you hate him.

Fivecentnickel on bad math

Back in May of 2005, fivecentnickel posted his thoughts on the debt snowball, specifically, Dave Ramsey’s debt snowball. In the post, titled Dave Ramsey is Bad Math, nickel points out, correctly, the mathematical reasons why the snowball should be based on interest rates and not the balance of the loan, like Ramsey suggests. Being a Ramsey fanatic, I took to heart what nickel’s arguments were, but his arguments are legitimate.
