Happy New Year. This looks like the year to get something done every single day. The world situation doesn't look very good.
The old Mitsubishi is headed to the junk yard as a parts car within a few weeks. I found a used 2009 Ford F-150 XLT that was a corporate lease vehicle with 169K miles. I was a little, okay a lot, skeptical about such a high mileage vehicle, but after the test drive and inspection I'm very happy. The inside was very clean with virtually no wear. The engine is solid without any leaks, burning oil, or losing fluids of any kind. The great part of it being a corporate lease vehicle is that all of the scheduled maintenance was part of the contract, so it had lots of TLC and all for $4999.00. Here's a picture of it below...
This will be the first white vehicle that I've owned.
The rent house price has been dropped again, and will probably be choosing another Realtor to take 7% to sale it for me. I'd like to get a lot squared away once the house sales. A lot of debt wiped out, and another used vehicle for the family. We are looking for a good used 3 to 4 year old Honda Pilot with under 45K miles as or primary family vehicle.
We've also got a pretty long wish list of things that we want done with the money. Paying off a loan, and a credit card, then saving 3-4 months cash for a rainy day are absolutes.
It looks like more gun control issues, so get those guns, 30 round magazines, and other things squared away this year. It's not going to get any better....
