In late 2009, I put a down payment on my truck. It was equal to slightly more than 10% of the loan, something in the order of 2600 bucks. To date, that has been the largest amount of money I’ve ever spent at 1 time on one single thing. Of course, over time I’ve spent quite a few grand (about 9) on the truck, through monthly payments, etc. It never seemed like a big amount though, not nearly as big as that check. Tomorrow, that check is going to look small compared to what H and I have to bring to the table at closing (we dont know what the amount is).
At any rate, on to the best posts of the week:
Over at budgets are sexy there’s a tale of a food truck worker. I’ve always wondered how these things work, and it looks like a great way to make extra cash!
Get Rich slowly has a post on not having any goals. This is something that I find rather odd, and havent really been there myself. It seems like there’s always something for me to save for, but of course, JD is in his 40′s, well established financially and all of that, and i’m, well, not.
