Facebook site on saving money:
"I have to buy a car this weekend, since my 13 year old car, with many things wrong, now has glitchy windshield wipers. I'm in __________. and am looking at a wet weekend. I want a small hatchback and I have about $12,000."
Further discussion showed that the old car needed about $2,000 to bring it up to her standards. I guess she couldn't tell the difference between $2,000 and $12,000, or she just wanted a new car. For $3,500 she could have it detailed, painted, and all things fixed on the old car and still save money.
