I decided to pay down my last credit card instead of saving for a car for my son. Thank you to everybody that gave input to my decision. Paying down the credit card is the responsible thing to do for my financial well-being and I think it is also the best decision for my son. He is choosing not to get a summer job because he is focusing on training for cross-country season. One consequence of not having a job is the inconvenience of sharing a car with your mother. I think that this will be a valuable life lesson.
$2600 left to pay on the credit card. My original goal was July 1, but that is not going to happen--too many Murphy visits--plumbing, car repairs. My revised goal is to finish by October 15.

I know it was a hard decision for you to make. Your reasons for not choosing the car sound like good life lessons for your son.

Murphy...why does he have to visit so often??? We just found out we have to replace our garbage disposal. Fun, fun!

Your decision to get rid of the last standing CC debt will be well worth it! :)
