I would guess that I have already bought 12 new cars since I was 22 and out of college.


I know more about you and your
finances than anybody on this
forum. You seem obsessed with
money and talking about it and
how much you spend.

Between my wife and I we get two new cars every three years. We each only put about 8,000 miles a year on our cars. I don't believe in buying tires, batteries, or windsheild wiper blades. When they are done I get rid of the car and just get a new one.

I love people like you, let me save a ton of money! :-)

I usually allow people one area to splurge. If you do not you start to hate life. I know I save a ton by looking for coupons or deals. I finally started to download apps for the few places I eat regular. Amounts to 10% savings over time plus if they give a birthday freebie closer to 20%. The people who laugh at me are always the ones who are broke for this or that reason. Really, anyone can make their paycheck go 10-20% further with care.

I still am not buying a car new. Only exception might and I mean MIGHT be if I go pick-up and they have great deals. Pick-ups are hard to find what you want gently used.

If your reading comprehension is adequate, you will realize that once again this conversation started about saving money. I am the king of methods to save money.

You can definitely get a new car cheaper by financing than by paying cash.

Fairly adequate. I know more about
your finances and how much you
spend than anybody in my own
family. Reminds me of when I
moved to Calif. In W MI, you
can know somebody all your life
and know nothing about their
finances because it's just not
discussed.

In Calif in the the first half hour
you know someone, you'll find
out how much they make a year,
what their car payments are, what
it costs to put their kids in a
private school, what they paid to
go to college, what their net worth
is. In Calif they're obsessed with
image, and in their minds who a
person is directly connects to the
money they have and spend.

I hated that about Calif.

Great, please tell everyone what my income is, my car payments are, my house payment is? I bet you don't know a single one. Just keep flapping your jaws and understand you will never be relevant.

The Paris Zoological Park on Saturday will begin a first-of-its-kind exhibit housing a bright yellow slime mold it has dubbed "The Blob." The gelatinous, amoeba-like creature has 720 sexes, no brain and no eyes but is "intelligent" enough to seek out food just like an animal would and find its way through a maze.
