Many Updates

February 10th, 2018 at 03:00 am

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. I have had so many things going on. Here's just a short list:

1) My nearly 20 year old car is in bad need of being replaced. I have spent several hundred dollars in the last 6 months just to keep it running.

2) The total amount of money I have gathered to replace the car is $2151.52.

3) I have some snowflakes arriving soon, $5.00 from epoll and $3.00 from Pinecone. That will add another $8.00 to the car fund.

4) The credit card #1 is down to $5753.94. Last March, when we had to replace the hvac, cc #1 went from approximately $2960 to about $7700 over night.

This last year has been REALLY hard, but I have gotten through that and I will get through this, too!

    Happy to hear from you. Sorry you're being pummelled by things breaking down, needing repair and replacement before you are ready. There is often nothing to be done but lift our chin and keep going forward. A bit of research on current car like that offered by Lemon Aid [Phil Edmundston] might help identify issues on this or any other car you might choose in the future.

    Would it help to list your current expense categories, interest rates, balances, pay-out rates on the forum side of SA? Those respondents may see helpful points.

    20 years is a pretty good life for a car. I hope you can find a good replacement.

    Wow, I'm impressed you got 20 years out of the car. You must have been very good at maintaining it. Hope you can find something you like and can afford to replace it.

    Actually, the car is nearly 20 years old, but I have only had it since July 2013. I have been very good at maintaining it, especially the last couple of years, because I knew it was nearing "end of life" for a car.
