Personal Finance 101 Posts of the Day 3/30/07

  • All Financial Matters show us why fees matter. Just one more reason to go with Vanguard and their $10/year/fund fee for low balances. I can't imagine paying $199/year on top of the Annual Expense Ratio, no matter what my balance.
  • Blueprint for Financial Prosperity asks: Do you buy online to avoid paying taxes? My personal answer is no. Taxes don't play a part in my decision (though they should since taxes in DC are high) price does and it's a fact that most times you can find things cheaper by spending a bit of time shopping around online. I will say that I'm looking forward to my upcominig move to Portland which has no sales tax. That will be a nice switch!
