    Looked under my dresser the other day and found a stack of original artwork from artists I have known, waiting to be framed. The artwork has been waiting to be framed for 20 years now. Three of the artists are international artists now. It has become a case of "I need to protect these". So...

    Heard this on the news Americans keeping their cars longer. I thought good then they went on to say the all time high was 6 years. This surprised me because I thought keeping cars 10 years was common. Maybe I was raised more frugal then I thought. Hubby and I have a 2001 vehicle (bought it...

    Hi everyone - Currently driving a minivan with 140k miles on it, and its 10 years old. We recently had 1500$ worth of repairs done! And then a few days later, had a flat tire, ended up getting four new tires - 400 bucks. Plan to drive it as LONG as possible. I was just curious how many...
  8. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Yup, in 2010 we did it- purchased myself my 'own' car in July for $3500 cash plus my trade in, worth $1500 or so, yesterday the last payment was made on hubby's car, an '05 subaru wagon with less than 45K miles on it. I will need a new car in 3 or so years (an '03 with now 83k on it), but...

    Just a random thought - why do people park their cars on the street when they have a really long or double wide driveway? I mean I can see if you have kids and you want them to play there instead of the sidewalk/street OR if you need to the car shuffle with the spouse but why do people do this...

    My car now needs the entire exhaust system replaced...ugh! DH wants me to just buy a different car but, I personally like my car. It's paid for, has 189,000 miles on it but runs like a charm...therefore, I don't see any sense in buying someone else's problems...I know the beast I have...

    Remember when you could sit on the porch, watch the cars driving by and be able to name every one? So many of the cars look alike these days, that I have no clue what most of them are. I do know a PT cruiser, a corvette, and a Volkswagon....lol Of all the vehicles you have ever owned, what...

    Well I know all families and kids are different, so no judgements. When I was sixteen I worked and my dad co-signed for me to get the car and I made the payments every month and was very responsible and payed it off. (I would never co-sign for anyone. :P) My daughter is doing great with her...

    Here is the deal. We decided that we needed an influx of cash for other projects and since our cars where paid for, we could down-size them. I basically had $13K to spend on a car for myself. So I wanted something with 4 doors and decent on gas. I went to Carmax where they bought my car and I...

    After reading another thread where the poster was given advice to sell a car that she owes on & purchase a less expensive, 'beater car'... I am wondering how many others actually have 'beaters' ? I am also curious to know what qualities make a car a 'beater'? Yes, we do have a beater.. old...

    When DH bought his truck the day after Christmas, it wasn't under the best of circumstances. He already owned 2 vehicles, one of which he still owed notes on. I wasn't really thrilled about him getting the truck (okay, so I actually threw a fit about it), but it came down to cost, opportunity...
