Decisions, decisions

Tax refund arrived today. Do I spend it on body work on the car? Or put it into a savings account to sit and build interest for an eventual house down payment or other emergencies? (Emergencies like the car needing body work?) Hrm.

In other news, does anyone know a reputable body shop in Toronto?

Put it into an ING savings account till you find a place that does body work you think you can trust. ING have no minimums and decent interest so it's both a cake to look at and eat.

I work for a company associated with some of ING's competition, so I was planning on sticking the money in one of $ING_COMPETITION's savings accounts anyway... you make a good argument. And actually opening the account and having it there makes it more likely that I'll toss money into it from time to time. And it keeps me from spending it all on funny pants.

Something of a simmilar modle works, no charges, no minimums easy to get money into a few days to get it out so limited impulse buys. Very handy. The ING and probably the compitition have programs where they just nick a preset amount of money form your regular account every so often. I figure if you notice it go, you can get it back, if you didn't notice it go it's better off earning 3.5%.

Is there such a thing as a reputable body shop? Isn't that like "military intelligence" or "jumbo shrimp"?

My suspicion is that the body work would end up eating most of the $$$, especially if I can't find a reliable place; the dealership where I go for my regular maintenance gave me a quote that seemed high.

Almost did this weekend, but we decided to just replace the dying ps2 with a shinier, much smaller ps2 instead.

Do I spend it on body work on the car?
For some reason I added the word or between work and on.

So I read...

Do I spend it on body work or on the car?

Re: Do I spend it on body work on the car?
The possibility of spending some of the money on tattoos also occured to me. :)
