How to buy a used car the right way

One of the biggest issues I see financially for people is cars.  I have seen new  car loans of 6-7 years now that are $400-$500 a month.  Yikes how can you afford to do that even if you plan on driving it to the ground.  My personal rule is buying a car several years old and then driving it into ground.  I currently have a 2001 mini van that I purchased in 2005 and my husband vehicle is 2005 purchased in 2009.  

A big excuse I hear from people is that you are buying someone's else problems when you buy a used car. Not necessarily the case if you do your research! 

The Carfax
We have all seen the commercials with the little fox popping up between a salesman and the customer telling the dealer to show the carfax. Carfax is the leading database on automotive histories and provides the history of the vehicle including accident damage, number of owners, mileage markings at various stages, then a vehicle has been declared a total loss, as well as service and maintenance history. Most dealerships have access to Carfax and use it regularly themselves and give access to customers for FREE! . Request to see the Carfax report, as any retail seller will have it. If a dealer doesn't willingly supply you with the report you may want to look at another car or dealer. If you do your homework on- line before going to the dealer or you are purchasing from an individual that may not have a report for you, you can access it for about $30 by going to the website; all you need to do is have the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
Warranty History Report
Running a Warranty History Report is second nature to an authorized dealer. The report will list all repairs performed on a vehicle throughout the warranty period. It is best to buy a used car from the dealer that sells the same brand of new cars so if you are buying a used Chevy, try to buy it from a Chevrolet new car dealership. If you are buying a Chevy from a Toyota dealer -you can take the VIN from one dealer and walk into another. Ask the service department for a warranty history report which will show all the repairs the vehicle had under warranty.
Bring a Mechanic
It doesn't hurt to take your own mechanic with you when examining a used car. Have them in to look at the car, drive it, check under the hood and look underneath the carriage. A well trained mechanic can tell if the vehicle has been properly maintained or if it has been damaged in an accident, and they will tell you what you can expect in the way of repairs.
 Read All Paperwork
Whether the car you buy is new or used, there is a plethora of papers that have to be signed. There is no better time for a dealer to slip something past you, such as a disclosure that says "the dealer has made no representations regarding the history of this vehicle." If you followed the advice above, and got answers to your questions, the dealer did indeed make representations about the vehicle, and it would be foolish to sign or initial something saying he did not.

College Student Lived In A Van To Escape Student Loan Debt

Ken Ilgunas paid off a $32,000 student loan and finished a second degree with money to spare by  secretly living in his van for two years. 

By braving roadside public toilets, a bean-heavy diet (kind of Dave Ramsey  like)  and mice scampering where he slept, the native New Yorker gained a masters degree at Duke University and a lifetime of incredible memories.  
But one of the many downsides was that he couldn't tell other students, in case they reported him to security who would have kicked him off the campus parking lot.

Ken shares his story in his new book Walden on Wheels: On The Open Road from Debt to Freedom

It's a shame that college costs have reached such levels that Ken had to take such actions, though obviously a great credit to him that he did it.

Prize Package Includes:
Rachael Ray Hard Anodized II 10 piece Set
Create super-nutritious and innovative meals that are never boring with the help of Rachael Ray cookware.

Or try adding a little spice to a simple lunchtime meal with a chipotle grilled cheese sandwich browned to perfection in one of the skillets. Rachael Ray Hard-Anodized cookware is the perfect combination of durability and style, and this 10-piece set certainly fits the bill. This set has all the essential pieces to make memorable meals every day. Hard-anodized construction provides even heat, helping to reduce "hot spots" that can burn food, and it�۪s coated with a durable nonstick both inside and out for exceptional food release and easy clean up.

With five versatile pieces, this set has what you need for baking everything from fresh cookies to decadent cakes and breads, but Rach uses this set for so much more. The cookie sheet is perfect for roasting vegetables or oven fries; the rectangular cake pan is the perfect size and shape for a cheesy lasagna; the loaf pan is the essential pan for homestyle meatloaf; and the round cake pans fit the bill for quiches or a zesty chicken tortilla casserole. Rachael Ray bakeware is made from durable carbon steel that can bake over and over again with the same great results. The grippy handles provide a firm grasp when pulling items from a hot oven. The sturdy construction also resists warping so cakes and pies come out perfectly round every time. This bakeware is oven safe to 500 degrees Fahrenheit for convenience and a portion of the proceeds from this purchase goes to Yum-o!, Rachael�۪s nonprofit organization that helps kids and their parents develop healthy relationships with food and cooking. Set includes 10-Inch x 15-Inch cookie sheet 9-Inch x 13-Inch cake pan 9-Inch x 5-Inch loaf pan Two 9-Inch round cake pans

How to pay off your student loans debt faster

Have you just graduated from college or know someone who recently did with student loans?  The average American college graduate takes 10 years  

Here are some tips to pay off your student loans faster 

Avoid the lavish Lifestyle 
You don't need to go on a big graduation vacation trip or out to dinner  and drinks every night 

Don't have mad money-

Anytime you have extra cash (ie bonuses or a raise) apply to your student loan 

Pay attention to Details  

Make sure that they are applying to principle and not the future interest-sometimes 

Move back home with Mom and Dad 
This could be your biggest booster to snowball your student loan . Apartment rentals cost $700-$1000 even if you are sharing rent with a friend. 

Check out the whole story on Fox News  of how how graduate did it within 1 year
