I had to find something positive in this week (seriously) so before the junkman came to pick up the car I decided I would find something salvageable to make a handbag, auction it off, and give any proceeds to my son. We do not do car payments in this house (nod to Dave Ramsey) so my son has a bit of a road ahead to get to the next beater car. Its tough getting a job when you don't have transportation.
I wanted to show you some of the journey. If you also want to bid on the bag the link will be at the end. This really isn't about the money (I do not think I'll get the $2,000 out of the bag that he will need) but more about showing him how to creatively problem solve, network with folks, and make the best out of a bad situation.
He were are doing the cutting. I have to say, that was fun. I may want to visit some junk yards and do this again.
Also, feedback and blog comments are much appreciated! Thanks
