Are coupons a waste of time?

 

Dear Dave,

Is it worth the time and effort to use coupons, or are they just a waste of time and a ploy to get you to buy things?

Get the brother-in-law out!

 

 

Dear Dave,

My 27-year-old brother-in-law moved in with us some time ago. He doesn’t have a job or contribute anything in terms of helping around the house or with bills. I think he needs to move out, but my wife isn’t so sure. She complains about the situation to me, but if I say anything, it makes me the bad guy with her family. How can I convince her?

Making the right choice

 

Dear Dave,

I’m a landlord in New York, and I’ve always felt it’s not a good idea to rely entirely on previous landlords for referrals on prospective tenants. Do you have any tips for selecting good renters?

Just another form of debt

 Dear Dave,

My son is 22 and about to enter the Navy as an officer. He’s been offered a Career Starter Loan. His plan is to invest the money and let it grow while he’s in the service. I’m not sure this is a good idea. What do you think about it?

Bad boat deal

Dear Dave,

My wife and I are on Baby Step 2 of your plan, and we’re paying off our debt. I’ve been trying to sell my motorcycle and listed it for $5,000 on Craigslist. The other day, a guy offered me $2,000 cash and a boat for the bike. I’ve always really wanted a boat, but I’m not sure this is the time. And the money would only make a small dent in our debt. Would this kind of deal be legal in the Dave Ramsey universe?

- Matt
