At first I was against getting a new car, because after that disaster I had to deal with when my dad gave me his OLD car I just didn't want to be bothered. I was fine just taking public transportation. I save money, even if I waste time. Then, my dad kept trying to convince me to get a new car and get it on lease to the point where I could see the possibilities. Now, I really want a car and the lease amount is pretty good, but everything else sucks. The insurance is going to cost around $200/month (more than my car payment!). I just don't understand why everything has to be so expensive. What's the point in working full-time if all my money goes somewhere else?
The car situation is an issue, because after the last car fiasco, I really don't want a second and car, but at the same time, it would be cheaper and my insurance will be a lot cheaper. However, I just don't trust second hand cars and the ones I've seen online are only somewhat cheaper than what I want...I don't know what to do.
