What is your next big purchase? Are you saving for it? Taking a loan? Putting in on a CC?

We are going to So America to visit our daughter and SIL- they are thinking of buying a home and we will help them- My daughter chose money over a wedding party.

A car. My car is 21 years old and I love it but it's on its way out. :(

I'm not kidding when I say I'll probably cry when I trade it in. I have the cash but have been procrastinating on car shopping because it's not fun for me. I've been looking at cars now and then though. I looked at a Mercedes Benz, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Avenger but I have to research cars better before buying because I want it to be as reliable and awesome as my last one.

It is one of the highest forms of arrogance for people to assume they can bestow forgiveness on someone else for their own self-inflicted maiming.

We're going to finance a new motorcycle, for hubby, when we have a good down payment saved up.

I have a 1993 Toyota Corolla. I don't know a lot about cars but I think it has a cracked exhaust manifold and if it weren't for that, the engine would have lots of miles left on it. But Wisconsin winter has also rusted the underside pretty badly so I guess it's time for her to retire. I can't justify putting money into fixing it at this point. It was a great investment for sure!

I'm saving for an upgraded DSLR. The camera and lens set I want are going to run me about $2500 and I'm halfway there!

 thank you! I've been scrimping and saving every penny I can from each session I do. I love my DSLR now but it's more an entry level camera and I want something more advanced, a full frame camera.
