A Reality Check?

While looking through Craigslist I found the following items listed at a ridiculously low price by someone who probably only a few months ago had the fresh start great opportunity feeling that I have with new keys to a large house. On the list are items that would interest me.

“Struggling need to pay mortgage payment any reasonable offers will be considered” sent chills down my back, and sadness for someone who could be me.

Those things are probably in excellent shape, no fade marks or scuffs. Owned by a family who forgot to live within their means. Have I signed onto something too big too? I sure hope not and will do my utmost to be economical in every way that I can.
