I've leased Hondas from both dealerships in Baton Rouge and you couldn't pay me enough to ever set foot in their showrooms again. I just leased one from the dealership in Lafayette, negotiated entirely over the internet, and it was probably the smoothest car...

[quote]I bought an Altima about 6 years ago, after financing it probably cost $23,000 total. I could probably sell it for around 8,000 now. I probably could've done 2 separate 36 month leases for around $15,000 and I would've gotten to upgrade after year 3.

I haven't owned a car since 1992 and have leased more than a dozen since then. Stick to the factory sponsored leases that you'll find on the manufacturer's web page under special offers. These will always be better deals than any lease concocted by the dealer but it means that you have to stick wi...

Try Calvin's in the Bocage shopping center for liquor. I've shopped there for years because they're cheaper than Albertson's or Rite-Aid by several dollars on almost everything. They'll also deal on case prices. For this kind of event go to Trader Joe's for the wine and get ten cases of three-buc...
