So instead of my lightning fast plan to pay off the van, I decided yesterday to trade it in and buy a brand new car! I couldn't stand that van any longer and just knew I'd need to start putting money into it. The new car is so nice. And it actually puts us into a better financial spot anyway. Which sounds really weird.
And my daughter is thrilled that she won't have to learn how to drive in the van.
Good news is we have a month off from vehicle payments (for me).
And Aldi's saves the budget again with 5 bags of groceries plus 3 gallons of milk for $89!!!!
That's one way to deal with it...
