On two polar extremes financially...
I bought a tactical pen, which is pretty cool. I also got a free knife from a customer on my route, and it looks like it could do some serious damage, even if it is a little small (which is good).
My car keeled over (very loudly) this weekend, so yesterday I bought a very reliable used car and ponied up a tiny bit more for an extended warranty that will take me through 2017. It's a Honda with 30,000 miles, so probably good for another 150,000 or so. Smart decision, and I had Jay do the talking when we were at the dealership. We got the interest rate down 5 percentage points because of him, plus free oil changes for the next 4 years.
I just brought my Bug Out Binder to the dealership, so when they asked for random info, I had everything right there.
