I have a habit of getting caught up in wants and ignoring needs. It is a problem I've had all my life and I know it. I'm becoming much more aware of it and hopefully getting a handle on it. I have almost completely stopped my impulse purchases which I many times regretted. So it's a step in the right direction.

So instead of finding out what it will cost, I decided to buy a new car. Luckily, it took longer than anticipated and I have reverted to reason. I am not buying a new car. I am going to see what it will cost to fix my car. I have got to stop doing this. I am trying to change my way of thinking. It's hard, but apparently I'm making progress because I did not drive a new car to work today.
