I'm so excited! We have decided it is time to become a 2 car family again. We've made due with just the truck since the car got totalled on August 1st. Ross' Mom and Dad graciously let us borrow their truck for a bit and then when I went on maternity leave, we've just had our truck. But now that Isabel is getting a little bit older, I'm ready to have my own wheels again! Last week, I was going stir crazy and had to get out. Ross borrowed his parents truck again and I went to Mom's for the day, it was awesome to get out!
So, I began searching for deals on the Internet this week. We have found several possibilities and we are going to St. Louis on Saturday to go look at several cars and some mini vans too. We would love to have a mini van for the space, but it's hard to find one with low mileage in the price range we are happy with. We are not shopping for a new vehicle, but a used one a few years old that doesn't have a crazy amount of miles on it. We don't want to be strapped with a big car payment again, so we decided that we don't want our payment to be anymore than $400 a month, and I would be happier if it was closer to $300. We are finally making some head way with our debt, so we don't want to get any deeper again.
Hopefully we'll get lucky and find a great deal on Saturday and I'll be driving home in a "new" slightly used car! We'll keep you posted on our search.
