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.

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.
