Finally Figured it out!!

May 10th, 2007 at 03:13 pm

Exactly what did I figure out!? Well, my first savings goal. I really haven't given it much thought until just now, which is strange since the goal that I need to meet is something that I need to do to my car. Last October, my dad was driving my car and as he was backing up he accidently backed into another car. At the time my dad didn't think there was much damage (he can't see very well) so he and there wasn't any damage to the other car so they just let it go. Well, later on, my dad was looking at the car more carefully and as it turns out there was significant damage to the car. Well, we took it in to a shop to get an estimate and the estimate was a little over $1000. Well, my deductible is $250 and I really haven't had any spare money to deal with fixing the car and to be honest I could live with the damage on the car. It really isn't that noticible. Well, as I was sitting here reading other peoples blogs it suddenly hit me what I needed to be saving my money for and that is for the $250. I really don't even know why I haven't thought about it. I guess it is because there really isn't that much damage to the car. Now, if the whole front end of the car was mashed in, then it would be different. But the damage hasn't effected how the car runs and seeing as how the car runs is most important to me, I just put this issue on the back burner. Well, with my issurance I have a year to file a claim on last October's damage. So this gives me a few months to get the $250.

    This sounds like a good goal - paying cash is much better than running up a repair bill and paying it off. Some garages add very high interest rates if you don't pay cahs.
