RE: THE BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN AMERICA [OCTOBER] Lone Star, but Many Fees Yes, Texas public schools are great, and the state has no sales tax on food or state income tax. But I don’t believe Frisco or Flower Mound are relatively as affordable once you factor in high property taxes for urban residents. Plus, annual vehicle registration can be expensive for drivers with older models. Personally, I’ll continue to “stick it out” in northwest Louisiana. MARIETTA JONES, Logansport, La. MEDICARE CAN’T COVER YOU ABROAD I enjoyed your recent article “A Costly Medicare Mistake to Avoid” [September]. Another costly mistake: not realizing Original Medicare generally does not cover expenses abroad (certain Medicare supplement plans offer limited coverage for medical emergencies when traveling abroad). My wife suffered a massive stroke while we were traveling in…

the salary you need to buy a home—in every state

BUYING A HOME has long been part of the American dream. But with middle-class incomes stagnant and home prices rising, for many that goal can feel out of grasp. The U.S. homeownership rate is now lower than it’s been in decades, and millennials are more likely to live at home with their parents than any other generation in living memory. And yet there are still several places in the country where homeownership remains well within reach of the typical worker. To see just where, we asked real estate consulting firm Veritas Urbis Economics to help us calculate the household income you’d need to buy a home in each state, based on recent listing prices from Trulia. We assumed the homebuyer put 10% down and took out a 30-year fixed mortgage at a rate…

6 office supplies you actually need in the kitchen

I HAVE A HOME OFFICE, so my workspace and my kitchen aren’t separated by much, which may be why certain office supplies have migrated from my desk to my kitchen cabinets. As it turns out, food bloggers and pro organizers also vouch for this odd combination. There are a handful of office supplies that are at least as useful for cooking as for working. Here are experts’ faves—and a few of my own. SIX SURPRISING CROSSOVERS BLACK SHARPIE MARKER First secret to saving money in the kitchen? Write on everything. Specifically, write down the date you stuck those leftovers in the fridge or freezer, the month and year you opened a new jar of spices, and so on. Don’t take my word for it; black Sharpies are an essential tool in commercial kitchens too. Pro…

4 things you should never buy at sephora

THOUGH THERE’S NO SUCH THING as wearing “too much” makeup, you could be spending too much on it. Shoppers across the country are buying more and more makeup: Usage increased 6% in the past year, according to market analytics firm NPD Group. And Sephora, the nation’s top beauty seller, plays a key part in enabling this trend. The retail store’s products almost universally have aesthetically pleasing packaging and targeted branding, making them an enticing splurge. But you shouldn’t be so quick to pick up every item that catches your eye. Former Sephora employees have revealed to MONEY how the store encourages you to spend more—and which items aren’t worth its high prices. Here are the top four products former Sephora employees recommend you do not buy from the store. 1. TRAVEL-SIZE ITEMS Many Sephora…

this 34-year-old ceo is helping people make money by playing video games

ALI MOIZ GOT HOOKED early on video games. As a child in Karachi, he snuck through stone dungeons in Prince of Persia, grabbed gold trophies in Dangerous Dave, and blasted aliens with lasers in Space Invaders. When he moved to Massachusetts for college, gaming was his life. Now it’s his job. Moiz, 34, is the CEO of Streamlabs, a free service that helps people live-stream their game play online—and get paid to do it. Amid the rise of online platforms like Twitch and games like Fortnite that draw massive followings, Moiz has created a system that enables thousands of streamers to pay their bills with virtual “tip” money donated by devoted fans. The service has generated a lot more than pocket change: Streamlabs says it processed $36.7 million in tips between April and…
