A quick note on the value of keeping good records on large purchases. Have you ever paid attention to your warranties? I know we tend to remember to send off the warranty cards when we purchase larger items, but I never keep track of them. Products with long or lifetime warranties can really save you some money in the long run.
This video clip is a story of a woman who has owned the same car for more than 40 years and has put over 540K miles on it. I was stunned when I listened to her talk about her lifetime warranties and how the companies who offered these warranties are still paying for the repairs. It has motivated me to start keeping better records.
