So, Robb's car is being fixed right now. Thank God for insurance! It's paying the $2950 we don't have budgeted for car repairs. And since it wasn't our fault, it's not even like payments will go up. I'm cool with that.
I've been thinking about cars a lot lately.
My car is an '04 Alero. I took out a 7 year loan when I bought it two or three years ago. I still owe over $5000 on it, but its value is dropping FAST. I'm not really able to make bigger payments on it to pay it off faster...at least not yet. So...yeah...it's a losing game for me right now. Robb and I were looking through a car lot the other night and I realized that I would be just as happy with a car that is not as nice as mine--you know, something cheap that runs. So...thoughts of getting rid of my car and paying it off are swirling through my head...
But I've always said I'd be happier living in the city and not owning a car. Less obligation to travel. No payments. No insurance. Yeah...still a pipe dream.
