If you have read past blogs, I wrote of needing a car, after I had hit a deer. I put my mind in overdrive and came up with a plan.
For two weeks, I emailed, texted or called every ad on Craigslist for cars selling at $1800 or less. I explained my situation and my need to make payments, with a down payment of $500.00. Two people were willing to do it, if I could pay a bigger down payment. $500.00 was really a stretch for me to come up with, so I had to pass on them.
At the end of the two weeks, I got a text, telling me to call regarding a car. I did and found out this person had a 1999 Buick Century for sale. He would accept the $500.00 down and take monthly payments.
I was, cautiously, excited, but have to admit, my thoughts were on the order of, it's a clunker, barely drives, etc., etc. You can imagine my utter delight, when I drove up and saw a very clean looking car, inside and out! I took it for a spin on side streets and the freeway. It drove great!
So, that is how, with the help of an angel named, Rudy, I was able to get a good car and pick up more babysitting jobs!
I paid it off and it's all mine!
Angels are out there!
Live, Love and Laugh!
