This is your
college fund

Dear Dave,
Our daughter is 11 years old, and we save $50 a month for her. Right now, we’ve accumulated $4,200 for college, a car or just savings in general. Should we be investing this money, instead of putting it in a savings account?

Not enough down payment?

When is it okay to purchase a house without making a 20 percent down payment?

Roommate agreement with family?

Dear Dave,

My husband and I have been following your plan, and we’re debt-free. Recently he invited his sister, her husband and their two kids to live with us. His brother-in-law recently lost his job, and he did this without talking to me first. I agreed after the fact, but do you think we need a roommate agreement or some kind of understanding while they stay with us? They have about $70,000 in debt, and they haven’t been very responsible with their money.

Her blessing was to be a blessing

Dear Dave,

My mom died a few years ago, and she left me an inheritance of $60,000 in stock. She was always investing and saving money. I could sell this and be debt-free while still having plenty left over, but I feel like I’ll lose a part of her if I do this. Do you have any advice?

No deal broken

Dear Dave,

Our son is about to graduate from law school. He took out a loan to cover the cost, but we’ve been paying on it for two years to help him out. Right now, the balance on the loan is about $76,000. We could continue paying it off, but my husband is hesitant. How do you feel about this situation?

Today’s necessities

Dear Dave,

Can you please define “necessities” in today’s world while trying to get out of debt and live on a budget?
