I'm constantly trying to find ways to save some cash, so long as it doesnt make my life difficult. Today I had the thought that of may be cheaper to sell my pickup and just rent a car when I'm home. I'm on the road in my company truck for 30 days then I come home for 5 days. My car is an '86 F250 diesel that I bought for $50. I pay about $100 a month to insure it, yet I only drive it a couple times a month. In fact, I drive it so little that the last time I put fuel in it was October. I could easily get $2000 for it and lose the insurance payments. The truck used to cost about $1000/year in maintinence when I drove it everyday. How much does it cost to rent a car? I've never done it. I'd just get some POS econobox to go fetch the groceries in. It just doesnt seem to make sense to me paying for something I'm not using. Would it be cheaper to just rent a car for 2-3 days when I'm home?
