My mom died a few years ago, and she left me an inheritance of $60,000 in stock. I could sell this and be debt-free while still having plenty left over, but I feel like I’ll lose a part of her if I do this. Do you have any advice??
Q: I’m driving a 10-year-old car with 195,000 miles on it. The car needs $1,500 in repairs, and it’s worth $5,000. I also have $15,000 in student loan debt, but the only other thing I owe on is my house. Should I pay to repair the car or buy something else for $15,000?
