Going out on Saturday night yet -- is -- up to date before -- is yeah it's gonna work and Africa well read but we have to party all of them. Well yeah so I hope I'll tell you right now there is probably 8085%. Chance that I'm gonna be confidence. Oh -- it's a good -- said that the -- will it actually drinking a beer at. -- it right out. I cannot even believe you anywhere in saying. Although it is right I mean I neatly is crazy to me to think that you actually I walked in our guns and -- are actually not. Now that yeah they're over an hour and now -- William -- it just the stressful morning and it you know I'm not blaming anybody in particular -- -- well it's it's the music. Atlanta about its release cycle somebody and -- they say he's not only breaks stuff that we can -- look -- it's it's not it. You know what I looked -- -- 430 opposed agenda degree radio hits in the three television live television you -- -- -- to -- Marianne. You know not drinking. Okay I'm gonna give you the she definitely looks like that and I think she looks better than me on -- worst -- yeah. I know that's -- -- but beyond that. Now this is that there's a lot of stuff happening a lot of people in the -- -- sick right so not have the slackened. And injecting -- -- running the board is very -- -- An amazing Asia I think he did a better job with the -- actually -- I wouldn't be like if we give -- yeah. -- -- -- -- I -- seven treated to me it's it's immediately. Make sure that show is more fun they were a little serious. Yeah okay yes -- you're about well you know we should it wish every email about this mingle and talk about this now we can now happen. What happened David Carnoy him. Our executive editor here at CNET -- came on to talk about the new -- -- NAFTA goes a view that's the color. E-book reader that's that's the big gadget that a lot of below. -- people who know how to region. Battery yeah. I mean like we we know we got into it and I got -- -- -- -- I mean -- are you into that whole phenomenon of -- actually reading books. On in a gadget. -- but what here's what happened you know I'm so competitive rate how ridiculous so I found out that two of mine coal -- -- give an iPad by the big Boston. I really want an iPad but now again. -- -- that's a I like -- -- he gave you -- I I want one now button and Molly says to me Molly Wood said that like the Kindle is awesome she loves it she loves it for reading. I do feel like. And hang pacemaker Anemia and bring in three newspapers today and it's instantly so I think it actually tried but but but but -- really know what device. What -- chaos I'll say this about you -- your reading habits I don't know how. Why you're so attacks but I think part of it is that you spend two hours everyday cutting out newspaper clip. And here's what I want I I thought they were coupons and. I clipping service. And what it is because I can't you non blocking such and I cut it -- is -- so old school it's okay well any teaching something a little bit about the Internet and yeah inter web as well screen -- taste hot enough money ultimately it's -- yeah Kindle or not. What no I don't have -- -- I have the iPhone for a China which I desperately trying not to get. And I pattern right right really when that. I OK but what if I have an iPhone board do I need and I'd be answered probably notes to make it should just get Kendall. -- You need to color milk that's my yeah yeah yeah I would and they're doing that topic -- -- yet again and the and the point I was trying to guess is the -- -- -- -- 250 dollars yeah. For fifty dollars more you can get an iPod Touch again. -- to run you know -- -- that you do a lot more than just read books watch videos and you can play video games -- also stuff. They get an iPhone for I really don't see you know the point in getting a -- color. Now like an iPad I can I think it's kind of interesting. Just because I've been playing around then lot of my 1980 friend and iPad now again and I can feel like the left out one because -- work at CNET and I don't have a. -- -- -- that might 87 year old father and as an iPad. I I know -- -- my power lunch system are like we got dad and I pan am excited because -- is no way he's gonna use that and I'm gonna get it. I was like totally plot -- -- like three months yet you need engraved on the back yeah. I come into the -- you know few like two months ago. And he is on his iPad I'm playing around it and he -- what is he stated he is. -- US India for Twitter. -- he says. Total ethnic I've lost my chance at that I -- -- you gotta buy an iPad. Speaking of way to go yeah you've been getting a lot more Twitter followers and -- gonna go ahead and to pay for that I think usually you know how well the hook. Okay -- an -- and they did this. This program -- -- addition to each and you individual. Okay okay dragged me into the Twitter phenomenon and I'm -- now I don't really like to it and last we checked your ballots when you find what is it -- twice. Three during ten to 2478. I in supposed to be 2500 by month and so. This weekend is in my friend and. Okay so we need 2244. Listeners right now to follow you that -- on money yeah. And actually one of the benefits of not only -- to know where angels can eat her next sandwich yeah. Bet you will get financial base in fact we actually have a bunch of questions before we hit the -- drag -- about a minute and a half will blow to about 37 quite. Shouting -- how -- do let me do a quick one here because this is -- SF Chris who wants to know what percentage of money. Should I use for my fun stuff once my housing food utilities is all taken care of me just and I thought of you in this. Because it really does dependent it and so would I would say is it would be great if -- new. Your housing your food you utilities he got settled done then you -- -- 10% and wait for savings and -- one -- And after that so if you had ten or 15%. 20% left over to blow on -- great. One -- actually asked an interesting question he said is it possible you just have fun. And 500 bucks a month -- -- -- But I -- my accident I -- -- -- right you could spend a lot of time on chat relent and how. It's lot of low lying and favorite Mac -- so yeah. It doesn't tell me how how much is it -- by -- and about -- downs of. I -- a month yeah so if you're and I -- in yeah. Okay so I wanna just -- -- say that so your housing expense hopefully in less than 30% higher take home. And your food in your -- utilities may be another 30% and -- sixty maybe 65%. And the rest for saving and fun I think that's great. Now it is actually possible survive on fund for 500 dollars a month maybe not as much in New York City right now as much -- right right. I think these are your friend that's getting married and announcement -- mean you couldn't do it it's just a question of like. Really what your prayers. T understand that there's like even living in your 500 dollars extra to go and have fun centric a lot of -- and I know elsewhere 500 dollars a month is a lot of people's mortgage. Plus as a rental apps or like a house -- -- I think I like and New York you know -- studio yeah. That -- making sense we need take a little break -- now now but on the other side will have some more questions. That you'll have to also has some voice -- and some emails from -- and a new Twitter avatar for -- I submitted Twitter avatar that's freaking hilarious I -- -- yesterday that after the break totally great we'll see as on the inside. This is the floor and home phone or an American actors the show where we -- -- As a little quiet -- him really know a lot I had a hamburger after. Sorry I can't I don't want to beard hey we're Asian nation anchored and as -- -- that. It felt like he's been drinking eight -- and well that's now what I yeah real. Yeah easily be an open -- Our Internet but I'm just saying that not that the open bars like okay easy as people are gonna drink that much right right -- projects. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I I got to actually meet. A bunch of just spent any Microsoft to than -- and again -- really cool people. -- -- the -- his hockey team. The whole idea -- come into the well lots. So I think it might be a little sort of ice action during the middle of the perception definitely and it just doesn't know this but we're gonna -- -- speakers from served piping people from. I'll I'm so yeah. I -- fabulous yet at out of all of -- time when we just got who can't this is from. JD who said that. He is starting a new career is -- get a big pay increase. Any sitting at the annual salaries going to be 42500. Dollars his company does is 6% match for the -- which is awesome. So he wants to know and will -- be able to survive on this income when my guaranteed. Monthly expenses. -- up to 18100 dollars a month and I say absolutely and because 425. -- -- taxes he'd take well maybe 3032000. Yet 24 grand expenses at least 6000 but there's our 500 dollars a month yet so I think you're gonna be totally it's awesome. Now I've asked this before in the past like you're throwing out you know. A lot of these numbers with 20% 50% 30% this is this all sounds like pretty basic easy yeah. But it. I think a lot of people have a hard time tracking -- dated game I use now debit cards credit cards cash in the wallet yet nobody wants to put break out the spreadsheet. You -- you you -- -- -- that for mr. you'll. Yeah mr. you did -- not I talked about your play in a spreadsheet the spreadsheet it's great because you can customize -- categories a lot of people don't have the same expenses everybody yeah. And like I get the -- needs. Saying again using your bank you know this here's a question from a guy says he's using his credit card he once he's like at a party -- is balance every single day realities -- system worked -- I totally don't hear it certainly -- -- -- -- bigger I had it like picture -- under control and test and figure how to get your wish to begin -- fantastic the way to keep track of your money I don't care it just keep track that so we know where it's Allah I do. Is really gonna hide that this seems kind of -- obvious to me why a a bank doesn't sort of start. A car that says hey. You know we are gonna automatically divvy up your funds for you wouldn't take X 9% and you're -- easier -- IRA put it you know like this is. We are -- yeah here's a deal you can do that to some extent what you can do is you can set up automatically. To have money it's called eight. A periodic investment plan with any retirement account like any -- can you can say. Suck 200 dollars at of my checking account every single month. Put it into my -- area accounted vanguard -- fidelity Akira price you Charles Schwab. But make it automatic and you can actually instruct the bank. And the end of mutual fund company to do that. For okay so -- my next question would be can I -- give you my paycheck in have to be like an allowance yeah did not painting that that's fantastic little Susie -- asked can you know a little bit like that. You're wasting your money on that and I think everyone can go for -- have some on don't deprive yourself you know it's like this only. -- thing you know like people like this -- Spend any money and you know roll and up and then you go crazy or what -- -- -- -- ask you sort -- one big long term question you first are coming on the show. This is probably at the very start. What everybody's been -- the -- -- financial crisis. Just a regular since the Great Depression right now and MI BR verbally or maybe temperature of -- -- okay so it's true. -- during that time you're like okay save two years or or six months of expensive gas. Two XYZ put money -- -- right now that like. We're Nancy everybody does and incidentally -- their recovery but it's been almost two years now. She we really start thinking about how we should be live your lives not in crisis mode. Yeah absolutely and I think that that the advice that I gave -- -- the exact same advice now I mean that the re. Keys to your financial future is down -- -- I'm writing it it can hear the but he he can't rate. Aaron I can you re -- here I think that will -- that are like evergreen the you'll always be able to do. Number one -- down your consumer -- -- -- credit card whether that means your car alone. -- you don't have to go as crazy with student loans only because there is some tax benefit in the -- good interest rates says. -- -- Had an emergency reserve fund six to twelve months and your living expenses in -- bank no we're wacky no stock market nothing. Number three. Put as much money he possibly can into your 401K at the very least put enough in so your employer -- -- no I now understand and that's a lot of good very basic advice that you've given us yes. What should we be spending -- We have some fun OK yeah. You -- this -- and a -- a -- -- on -- up front until it totally depends you should add your fund money she'd never deprive yourself you should figure out. When you're tracking all of your money you say how much money of my total can I make. And that we really kind of increase that overtime every time he Gatorade -- -- it is here. At some point that what do you split the difference you say half we'll go into my retirement -- at this my -- -- now so you know for for you Wilson yeah he got a little -- while you might -- you know what can by the iPad -- can do something.
