Sold my car tonight.
I cried when they drove off with it.
They test drove it for 5 minutes, and knew right away they wanted it. Of course.
They gave us a wad of cash.
I no longer own my dream car.
But we no longer have car debt.
I don't know if you remember my post from July- I am too lazy to link it. But I started a paper route in July and decided it was time to do all I can to get out of debt.
Well I will honestly admit I haven't done all I can to get out of debt- you know, haven't made Kenzie dress in homeless clothes and put her out on the streets to sell Disney stickers and suckers- and I have even bought stuff I probably shouldn't have- and we have gone out too eat probably a little too often- but since July we have climbed ourselves out of $6,500 dollars worth of debt, paid off Julia's birth, and 1 credit card. Yes a credit card. The big CC. I'm a little delayed and behind when it comes to silly mistakes like credit card debt.
Dave Ramsey is coming this May. Chay and I are going to his 4 hour financial seminar. I listen to him quite frequently on talk radio so I am well aware of his snowball system and so far it is working! Slowly but surely!
I really miss my car right now. She was so nice to me in the snow.
oh and what will I drive now???
But don't worry, it was free and I married a mechanic miracle man...and one thing good about getting your car from a junk yard is: the chances are very high other junk cars will have the parts you need to fix up your junk car.
It is a perpetual place of possibilities, those wrecking yards...
So the transmission was shot- oh that is ok, there is another Jeep Cherokee over in that pile across the way- that has a perfectly fine transmission.
And so it goes. Our free Jeep.
