YOU Are YOUR Best Car Buying Guide

Is there really such a thing as the best way to buy a car or the right way to buy a car? No, there really isn’t. The only right way to buy a car is the way YOU feel is best. Am I right? Or am I right? Because you are different from everyone else out there buying a brand new car. How can there be a science to buying a car when we are all different with different personalities…and don’t get me started on the person assisting you with your car purchase. That adds a whole new dimension to the  process

You may not care what you get when buying your new car, as long as it’s the best price OTD and the negotiations happen the way you envision from reading all the guides, articles, and books on car buying. But there is no science to this. Maybe a little math.

So take the equation: shopper + car + price = happy customer. How can you honestly configure a way to make this equation work perfectly every time? You can’t. I’m not saying it’s impossible…wait…maybe I am. But we are emotionally made up human beings. Otherwise, we would all drive the same car, in the same trim, with the same color. That’s not going to happen because I want to stand out from you. Ha! Ha! Ha! And we aren’t Vulcans.

Car buying guide at it’s best:

  • Do your homework on what you need for your driving lifestyle.
  • Then…and only then…go and test drive and get a feel for the car you want.
  • Lastly, the math…add it all up just like Mama always said, if you have the money for it, you buy it. If not…get what you can afford. You remember the saying about hamburger and filet…

So trust YOURSELF when buying YOUR next car…not someone else. Because it’s YOUR car, YOU drive it, and YOU pay for it. And if all else fails…go in with YOUR best price. Because YOUR best price isn’t the same as my best price or ayone elses. Therefore,  the dealer’s best price doesn’t matter, it’s YOUR price that counts.

Wings or Balls

Personally, I like balls myself. Sausage balls that is. Everyone thinks of chicken wings, aka hot wings, as a snack when they watch the Super Bowl, or football period. Not I. Every year when the most highly anticipated game of the season rolls around I make sausage balls at my SB party. Why? Because they taste good! And they are easier to eat…don’t forget less messy!

Also, I won’t contribute to the chicken wing shortage that has been talked about for the last 2 weeks. In case you didn’t know, yes. Stop. Shortage. Stop. On chicken wings. Stop. Yes, I know. Stop. I said chicken wings. Stop.

And did you hear? To top it all off, a couple of guys stole $65,000 worth of chicken wings! Now, I did some digging, notice I said some, not a lot, as in very little, and I read that the shortage doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get your favorite little hors d’oeuvres. You will just pay $65,000 for them due to the “shortage” of this most coveted Super Bowl party necessity. (You do realize I am being metaphorical when I say $65,000 for wings…just my way of exaggerating.)

But it is the beginning of a new year…and carrots. Stop. Celery. Stop. Are pretty tasty little treats on the grub table. STOP.
