If you have been reading this blog for awhile, you know that Jenn and I drive two ten-year-old vehicles.
Well, my friend, Alden, has an older vehicle as well. He and his bride have been working diligently to position themselves to win financially. Guess what? They ARE winning financially. Well, this past week, he had car problems.
I love the perspective he brings to the frustration of a car problem HERE. Go read what happened, then come back to this page.
I remember when I had just become debt-free and then the car broke down. FRUSTRATING, until you realize that you actually have cash on hand to repair it. I like to say it this way, every time I had a problem, I would have two problems. The actual problem AND a money problem.
Now, when my car breaks down, it is just a car problem. I can pay to have it fixed.
Besides, is it realistic to go through life believing you will never have a car problem? Then why don't we save cash for repairs?
Great job, Alden and Deanna! Although frustrating, this is a SUCCESS STORY!!!
