How to Save Money as a One-Car Household (and Make It Work) is a post originally published on: Everything Finance - Everything Finance - Its all about Money!

Well, his car ultimately kicked the bucket first once it hit over 200,000 miles and became too expensive to maintain or repair. This has...

Being an adult involves sacrifice – sacrificing personal pursuits and deferring dreams for the sake of family. Life doesn’t end. Ambitions and dreams don’t die.
