    Hello,

    I have been trying to figure out the reason why my wife and I pay cumulatively 8+% on our student loans. I have consolidated both, and have NO other options that I am aware of. I am watching this student loan interest debate on it doubling to 6.3% which is high, but what about people like myself who are stuck paying over 600 dollars a month in INTEREST ALONE!!! I don’t think its fair, and I have no voice. Do you have any advice, insight or even just a “Yep, your screwed” for me?

    Thanks so much, I appreciate your time.

    Regards,
    Corey Carr

  2. I have a spending problem. I was born raised in India and when I immigrated to US and then to Canada there was always an element of fear that I had to return to India in-case I could not immigrate. This made me save most of my money to build a corpus to return. Now after being a Canadian national for 16 years, my chronic saving problem is still with me. I saved 60,000 of the 117,000 I made last year and I have 2 kids. When ever I earmark $5,000 to spend for a vacation or something nice, I could not find the one thing that would be the most value for that money.I am worried I will die wihout enjoying the money I saved.

  3. Hi Ram, it’s common for immigrants around the world to save a larger percentage of their income than people who are born and grow up in the same country. The feeling of uncertainty contributes to this. The fact that you save a lot is understandable, and you should be proud of that. It’s a great habit. Here’s the challenge for you, I think: you say that you are worried about not having enjoyed your money. You don’t enjoy money. You enjoy life. Are you enjoying life? Are you enjoying life with your children? Yes, you want to be financially independent. You also want to experience the options that money provides. I know that it can be hard to find things to do or spend money on if you’re not a consumer (and it sounds like you are not.) But travel is something I would recommend for you and your children. Go to Washington DC, New York City, or Boston, very historical cities in the US, and visit the museums and parks with your kids. Accept that you may not feel like everything you spend money on during your vacation is a “value”. The value is in the experience for you and your family. You’re focused on getting a value for every dollar 50 weeks a year. For two weeks a year, you can budget in a vacation, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your hard work. Finally, you have to set a good example for your children. Work hard, save money, but enjoy life, too. Best of luck, and congratulations. I think those two children are lucky to have you as a parent.

    I was wondering if you could talk and give some advise to the single ladies trying to build a future.. It seems nearly impossible to try and pay down debt, save and expand my education so that i can increase my earning power. (Single girl series maybe?)
