You were right.
We bought a car that we could afford instead of the what we thought we needed. It has alot of miles. And a big dent on the door. But it's also the most amazing $2,500 vehicle a person could find (I like to think so, anyway). I had to change my thinking a little bit about cars and decide to be a proud member of the Junky Car Club.
(though it's not the least bit JUNKY)
And it's amazing.
The fact that it's paid for definitely makes it drive better, and I love telling people about what a miracle it was. I love it so much, I put our new sticker from the Sagers on the back!
Thanks for helping me see that being debt-free feels better than any $10,000 minivan could.
