I...I traded my Toyota Yaris. You know, the car that I was going to have paid off in another year. And after that I'd planned to funnel the money I would have used for the payment onto my student loans. In my plans, I'm a responsible, frugal adult.
So of course I went and traded my car today. And got a Mini Cooper--you know, the car I couldn't afford.
It actually wasn't all that expensive. I got a great trade-in and it was a hail-damaged car (although repaired) so it was cheaper than it would have been ordinarily. My payment only went up about $15. Um, with a six-year note.
But it's beautiful. It's exactly what I wanted. And I am feeling very, very smug.
Green, with white racing stripes. Hell yeah.
