I've been using minoxidil and Nizoral since 2011 and finasteride since 2018. I feel that minoxidil alone was just slowing the process and...

I'm seeing about 10% in my area (elite Inner West Sydney). When the seller has to take the market price, then those that would have sold...

Here's what I think. In Australia we'll ease up restrictions starting in May and probably most restrictions ended by the end of the year....

Sadly yes. It’s $140/day for my 21 month old and $130/day for my 3 year old. It was even more last year when my eldest who just started...

I'm loving working from home. I'm loving free childcare even more. It's worth about $3.5k/month to me.

High debt held by households is a very real problem but government debt is absolutely not an issue. Therefore, just like the GFC a lot of...

Yes this is the real world. When Australia slowed “aid” to pacific nations, China upped their “aid”. Next came rumours of China...

Isn’t interest still calculated daily then paid monthly? So you would still get 4 months of the higher interest rate just like the...

True @zeomega it's in the fine print of most mortgages. In practice though, unlikely to ever be exercised. Even in Ireland post GFC, banks...

Exactly. That's why you never buy individual companies, only index funds. Predicting which companies survive the crisis is like throwing...

Your plan sounds good to me so long as you can keep your job and make the mortgage repayments. I'd advise index ETFs over individual...

That's why you don't buy individual shares cos it's like throwing darts at a dartboard. OP says he wants to buy ETFs which track broad...

Why though? A mortgage is never subject to margin call. As long as OP can keep making repayments, his stocks could tank 60% in the next...

If you think you can keep your job then a loan secured by your house is not subject to margin calls and definitely the way to go for...

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml $96.90 + Delivery ($0 C&C) @ Dan Murphy’s
Pretty good price for a top rated single malt. One of my favourites.

Has anyone ever been tempted to hide those Coles Myer gift cards in late October just before Shop Small starts in November?

I just tried the white version with 2 sugar. Was pretty good.

Just go outside and look up at your building. It's pretty easy to spot aluminium cladding. The building in renting in we received a letter...
