One of the biggest opportunities for cutting our spending is with respect to our cars. First and foremost, I’ve long advocated simply buying less car. For years now, I’ve driven only cars that I could purchase for cash. To begin, that meant buying a car for less than $2,000. You can imagine what…

I just paid off my car. Should I trade it in now?

Congratulations on paying off your car. There were probably days along the way when you worried the car wouldn’t last as long as the loan on the car, but it made it! You have taken a huge financial step forward. Now what?

Follow this simple system and you’ll never have a car payment again!

  1. Keep driving the car you have now.Take care of it. You want this baby to last for years. (If you haven’t told your car lately that you love her, now might be a good time.)
  2. Keep making the car payment.What!?! Make the car payment into a savings account. Keep the money sacred for your next car.
