I told my sister I wanted to pay my house off early, within the next five years (we owe 25 years). She said I shouldn't do that because the interest was so low - she said remodel the house first, then pay it off. I told her if I paid it off early, I would probably save over $50,000.00 in interest!! She didn't say anything.
I need a new car desperately and am saving money for one. I should have enough to pay for one with cash by early winter. My mother keeps hounding me telling me I should finance one. I said "What happens if I finance a car and I get hurt and can't work, or my husband gets hurt and can't work? Who will pay for it?" Of course there was no answer.
I'm not surprised about my sister, she lives check to check and has no money left at the end of the month for anything - she is overfinanced. My mother though I am really surprised about. She has never used credit for anything besides her house and that is paid off.
UGHHHH - why do people keep hounding me to charge everything!!!
