    Stu reacted to joejet in Returning to the uk with a large quantity of Platinum coins   
    Well firstly I also hold gold but platinum has a lot of long term industrial applications in fuel cell electric vehicles I believe in 10+ years it will outpace Gold.

    Stu reacted to Foster88 in Selling gold coins on Ebay   
    I wouldn't touch eBay with a sh*tty stick after the experiences I've had with them. They're an accessory to fraud and nothing is done about them.
    But that's just my opinion.

    Stu got a reaction from GenX in Bit of advice   
    You are probably going to get overloaded with a lot of replies which could be counter productive, however. I would suggest you could get incredibly diversified across the entire world stocks with £300 per month. You could set up a Dd for a low cost, global equity tracker, that tracks the entire world stock market. Vanguard is a good place to start. If you are young, put it all into equities (stocks and shares) . If older or less risk tolerant, balance with. A % of bonds. There are ready made packages to drip feed into. Keep gold to around 10% of your “portfolio” Good luck

    Before lockdown I was spending around 200 a month on just buying coffee .... mocka,, docka, rapperchino type things.... and probably another 200/300 on lunches... now I buy a sovereign a month or if possible (when the good people of TSF do good deals) some 1oz items... when we go back... coffee off the table and lunches made by my fair hands.... so turned an expense into a savings plan...

    Received this today. Very happy with it, unfortunately had to pay more than RM price but @Chrisplym was a pleasure to deal with. Great packaging and also very fair and reasonable with the price - enough room for both of us to feel happy with the transaction i hope.
     
    Also @Paul offered some very useful advice on what is my first proof purchase, so thanks to him also!

    Stu reacted to GoldDiggerDave in Mortgage endowment policy surprise.   
    Well done!   There's nothing like the feeling of paying off your mortgage and saying FU to the bank that owed your arse!
    I worked out years ago you only really need 3 things food, warmth and shelter.    I paid my mortgage off and I get drift wood off the beech to heat my house for free so I get 2 out of the magic 3 for free.   I use less than £117 in gas a year  my total monthly outgoings are £428 for everything.   
    Debt control is the key to being close to free as you can in this world, don't fall into the trap that I've seen many do,  pay off the mortgage only to replace it with more debt and or more outgoings  some find it difficult to get off the hamster-wheel. 
    Well done sir I salute you!

    Stu reacted to Stacktastic in Remortgaging opportunity?   
    Yes of course I did not think of that - of course if you remortgage you will only have to do it on 20-30% of the property assuming you started from scratch. 
    That means the payments will be a lot less assuming interest rates have not gone up severely. 
    I guess by then anyway you could have enough investments to buy it in cash anyway??
    Like buy a property at the bottom - rent it until prices go back up and then sell it for a decent profit.  

    Thanks for that its really brightened me up knowing I could get completely out of debt in 10 years.

    No sweat, I’m 5 years into a 10 year but looking to b break out for an interest only. Probably looking for a 7 to 10 year deal. Also have around 50% equity.

    I don’t know. I think they only cover England and Wales so rules me out. Probably just as well as I would be tempted. Think this is repayment rates also and so am considering going interest only.
