SHOULD YOU KEEP TRACK OF EVERY PENNY YOU SPEND?

Of course not. Accounting for every penny not only makes budgeting a drudgery but more important, buries you under so much detail that you may lose sight of what your money is really worth and what you can accomplish with it.

SHOULD CHILDREN HAVE LIFE INSURANCE?

This makes sense only if you-- as the breadwinner-- already carry enough insurance on your own life to protect your family adequately. Even then, buying insurance on your child merely to provide future funds for his education is usually not the wisest choice. For example, a typical 15-year $8,000 endowment policy on you issued at age 30 costs $497 a year, including waiver of premium compared to $520 for a similar policy on your 3-year-old.

IS THERE A "BEST TIME" TO BUY STOCKS?

Yes-- when they are cheap in relation to what they will be worth in the future. However, you can't ever be absolutely sure about this until the "best time" has passed. Even experts disagree on when to buy, and this disagreement makes the market: most stock transaction takes place because somebody thinks this is the best time to buy while somebody else feels it's the best time to sell. The fact that a stock sells for much less than it did a while ago means little-- it's a bargain only if it goes up after you buy it.

WHAT CHECKING ACCOUNT IS BEST FOR YOU?

That depends on how many checks you write each month and the average amount you keep in your account. If you write about 10 checks a month and your balance is small, a "convenience" or "special" checking account is probably best.

WANTED: THE OTHER MILLION DIABETICS

The old converted bus now lumbering through the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, carries none of the usual trappings of medical innovation-- no doctors, no test tubes hopefully bubbling, no intricate lifesaving gadgets.
