How much do we spend-- basic replacement of the car we lost for just a few grand- although that car was 12 years old already. Do we upgrade for a newer car with less mileage and more fuel efficiency? And take a bigger chunk out of our funds?
How many bells and whistles do we need? Does it need to be a four door? How many dents and dings are acceptable before a car just looks too hoopty? How much do we haggle?
Oh, we are so not going down the road of car payments because our mortgage is enough of a debt. But, I am beginning to understand why it would be a lot easier just to pick out a new one and have a monthly payment.
My husband is a born researcher and hand wringer. I am much more impulsive. "Hey, this looks ok, it's cheap enough, let's buy it and get on with our lives." Between the two of us I don't know what we'll end up with.
The only thing I do know is the house is a mess of toys and anything else that they can reach and pull down. Dinner is planned and prepped (wheat noodles with broccoli in a Thai peanut sauce) and those hairy sweet potatoes finally got made into a pie for dessert.
