Take time to breathe... and make a few phone calls

You can read from my other posts that my car died. I need a new engine. I had two estimates. One for $3100 & the other for $3200. ~6 month warranty on both. I made one more phone call. $2450, same warranty everything is pretty much the same. This is a no brainer. Tow the car to the new place (after calling the place it was at to see if they would match the $2450 price). Nope, couldn't even come close. So... to the towing place that had a repair shop attached. It's been there for a long time, they beat all the prices. Apparently in the world of disposable cars... repair shops need money.

I am glad I didn't make any snap decisions, I am glad I prayed and praised.

My car is on the mend :) I definitely know I made the right decision to get it fixed instead of getting a new car.

Proverbs 24:14 Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.

I think you made a good call. I'm into reducing all the debt I can, so I understand what your saying.
