We're working on getting a new car and it's making my eye twitch and my belly nervous. So much money. Hopefully we will snag a zero interest deal. But even still, it's still a buttload of bucks. Not so happy about that.
Just writing this post has my left eyelid a twitchin'.
But I know we need the car to get me to school, as both of ours will not. I don't even like to think about the cost of school. It's just too much money. I'm gonna go sniff some coupons to take the edge off. I doubt it will help.
Hope you find a really good deal then.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Us too.Delete
Me too! And don't forget to post a piccie of your new wheels :)ReplyDelete
Hope you get a great deal on a car. It's a buttload of money, but it's not wasteful...it is helping you reach your goals. Hang tough, my twitchin' friend :)ReplyDelete
Can't go to school without it. Thanks :-)Delete
It's money well spent. I work at a college and you wouldn't believe the students who fail classes because of no transportation. Good luck with the car-buying and good luck with school. :)ReplyDelete
Why do they sign up if they can't get there?Delete
Thanks - I can't handle thinking about the loans for school just yet. One baby step at a time, for me.
Yes, it's a nerve-wracking process, negotiating for a new car. Hang in there!ReplyDelete
The car could be 5 grand and I'd still not be happy about spending it. Just not easy for me.Delete
You might want to think about investing in Comsumer Reports for a year (they have an on-line service besides the magazine). They've helped me find reliable cars (used and new). Lots of good information from them.ReplyDelete
I do like that magazine. Thanks.Delete
Good luck in the hunt. It's no fun, but as others have said think of it as an investment in your future. :)ReplyDelete
Cookery school, here I come.Delete
I think ...
Good luck on the car hunt! I want you to go to school so when you win one of Gordon Ransey's shows, I can say I knew her when!ReplyDelete
Haha, that's funny. Me on a show. I'd be the one crying in every video. I'm such a wuss.Delete
I am confident you will find the most rockin' deals out there because it's in your blood, Whisk. I wish you the best of luck on finding not just the best deals but with your nerves too. =)ReplyDelete
A rockin' deal would be great. Sorry to read that your email got hacked.Delete
When we bought our car I was nervous for days. We bought used from a trusted seller. In reflection it was a great experience, but I couldn't help being nervous about spending all that money at one time.ReplyDelete
It's just so much money.Delete
Good luck with the hunt! These days I've delegated that task to Rachel and she did a far better job than me in securing our latest vehicle (my main contribution was ensuring it had a decent stereo that I could plug my iPod in to).ReplyDelete
I tell ya, I want to be able to plug my iPod in as well. I do that with the radio at work. Love that feature.Delete
Good luck. It is a lot of money. We've been through it a couple of times now, and it's still nerve-wracking for us too. Hang in there, think about the positive (moving toward your goals!). Hope it all goes well!ReplyDelete
Thanks - yikes on a couple of times. I'll be lucky to make it through this one.Delete
Did it get any easier the second time?
It does get a little better. But even on our second time we were still nervous. I think circumstances where you drop a large chunk of change into one thing are always rare enough that you probably never get to a point where you feel like it's no big deal. On the other hand, at least you get to say, "well, we did it once before, and it went okay that time..."Delete
I'll be like, we did it once, I only broke out in half a body rash. I'll be okay the second time.Delete
Don't blame your eye for twitching. Everyone is worried about money, I think. You're pretty frugal so I hope you'll figure it out.ReplyDelete
Money goes so fast, it makes me head spin.Delete
Well it will be money well spent if you don't then have to pay for repairs and the running costs are lowerReplyDelete
And that's it too. We've put a lot of money into even good used cars before.Delete
Shopping for a new car can be very frustrating. I hope you get a great deal!ReplyDelete
Thank you bunches.Delete
Hi happy whisk, wish you good luck, hope you get a good deal soon. Keep finger cross!ReplyDelete
Just don't play poker while your eye is twitching.ReplyDelete
