    The money I've 'saved' by living in a sub-standard home has been put towards renovating the home. We bought it at 87K and now it's a snazzy 130K and climbing . . . we are the affluent neighbors

    They're decent - we packed all of us (6) into our 5-seat Trailblazer for 5 years - obviously when we bought it we didn't expect to have a 4th child . . . and when he came we didn't have the money to roll those payments into a bigger vehicle. Then - because the TB was such a solid vehicle (never had a single mechanical issue - ever) I was reluctant to let it go and risk taking on a more potentially volatile vehicle.

    It turned out that waiting was perfect because only two mini-vans get the equivalent mpg - for considerably more cost - as the Mazda5. . . so it's good in all those aspects.

    I'd rather have a nice house and a nice car, but if I had to pick just one, I'd rather have a nice house. I spend more time there.

    We rent an apartment now so I would have to say car. I love my black convertible Mustang.

    We have a nice house in an affluent neighborhood, but one of our vehicles is ten yrs old, and isn't the prettiest thing to look at. My oldest seems to be embrarassed by it, but you know what I tell him? ''Shaddup, it's paidfor''

    He basically thinks we are poor b/c we ride around in a ten yro vehicle. Teens

    I asked him if poor people live in a 3500 SQFT house in a nice neighborhood. Hence my poll question....
    It depends.

    Can I get a truck with one of those coverings over the bed so I can put a sleeping bag in it and use it as my house?

    That way I can have the best of both worlds.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Re: Would you rather have a nice house or nice cars(s)

    I grew up in crappy apartments, sh*tty trailers, and ever a shack.. bought my first hunk of crap car when i was 17 ( for 250 bucks.. an old 46 ford truck)

    I was pretty much in want for either a nice house or a nice car... and it took foreveeeeer to them.
    now i have more of both than I could ever have dreamed of having.

    if i had ot choose.. it would be a nice house...my house is my castle.

    Re: Would you rather have a nice house or nice cars(s)

    I don't care about my car much at all. I drive a 1999 Toyota Camry, and that's A-OK with me. As long as it gets me from Point A to Point B without too much hassle, that's all I ask for in a car.

    I guess I care a little more about housing. I prefer apartments to houses, because they're low-maintenance and I like the freedom of being able to pick up and move whenever I feel like it. I don't need anything really fancy, but I do appreciate small luxuries like an on-site exercise center, Verizon FIOS access, and a business/lounge area...and I'm willing to pay quite a bit extra to live in a good location.

    But ultimately neither my housing nor my car are really that important to me. I like to live below my means.

    I have an ok condo that is perfect for me. It does not have granite countertops however or some other enhancements. It is only 800 sq ft but I would not need anymore space. But I do have a really nice car, not to impress other people but because I really like it personally.

    I just wanted to comment on the awesomeness of the Toyota Camry. My mom had the same one for my entire childhood and it ran like a beast. She bought another one after the old one finally gave out a few years ago. Those things are some of the most reliable cars made and I wouldn't mind having a 10 year old Camry in exchange for a nice house.
