While I’ve always been concious of making the right decision to not offend people and keep myself in line, I was never necessarily good at making the smart decision. At times I wanted something so bad that I was impatient and often regretted things I’ve bought.
I was wise in leasing my car a couple of years ago because I overpaid my mileage and got money in return this time around. I don’t know about you but the thought of hanging out with car sales people (whom I like to call vultures) who are trying to take my hard earned money makes me cringe. I was “robbed” over five years ago when I leased my jetta, thankfully I have gained courage and gotten wise since. I’ve heard on the news that now isn’t the right time to buy a car, but let me tell you it is. I had a 2007 Mercedes I leased, but because I live in a rural area, I drive a ton and had too much mileage. I would have liked to have kept it, but purchasing or releasing it would have been a waste. I was sad to let her go, but I got a terrific deal, which included a 100,000 mile warranty. Seeing as I am not a fan at all of the new Mercedes body style (sorry to offend anyone) I decided to stick with the same year. I leased my 2007 initially in August of 2006 and my new car was purchased in May of 2007. It’s a little bit younger and there are a few changes. Overall I love it! In the past I wouldn’t have cared about warranties, gap insurance and stuff like that, but after having an unpredictable vw which sucked my money and brought on anxiety, I feel smarter making decisions.
Is it selfish to hope my old car doesn’t sell? 😦
Bye little sister……
