That Bronco could bring some good money. Check out the sales figures here - https://bringatrailer.com/ford/bronco/

You could then buy an older Prius. If you can find one with a dead hybrid battery, it could be really cheap, and then you replace the battery pack - see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSwUEVx5G3U&t=55s

Plus one to the euthanize the Bronco and replace it with an older Prius that people are afraid of. You will be so, so glad you did.

Next, are you getting a large tax refund? Perhaps you can adjust your withholding and put a little more back into each paycheck.

How is your training going? Time for an update on that front.

Have you looked into any services that might be available to you based on your income level? No shame in using it when needed.

What are you doing with your new savings? Are you investing it immediately or letting it languish in a passbook-type account?
