Buddy recommendation

Contribution by Kennith Griffin

I have had the same best friend since I was in the eighth grade. We have always done everything together, and he is someone I trust completely. We always laugh because he says I am always following in his footsteps. He got married about six months before I did, and he had his first child, a boy, about a year before I had my son. He had his daughter five months ago, and our daughter is due in November. Although it is not true, he likes to say I am simply trying to be like him. One thing that I am following in his footsteps on is switching to fixed-rate energy through He has been doing it for about six months, and he really speaks highly of the switch. He keeps telling me that knowing exactly how much he will spend every month helps him to better manage his finances. His wife is a stay-at-home mom, so they are always trying to save money when possible. My wife and I have discussed switching ourselves to try it out. We switched to satellite TV because he recommended it, and we have not been disappointed. I pay less for more channels now than I did with my previous provider. He usually does not steer me wrong. It is great to have such a trusted friend.
