Dear world,

We need a new (used) car. And I'm asking you for help.

Our car had a great run. It's been many places. It's seen many things. I've added over 100,000 miles to it! But it just can't take it anymore.

We need something... as soon as possible. We'd love a wagon. Nothing too curvy. Maybe something kind of boxy? We need something inexpensive. Something that runs and isn't about to fall apart. Something with a warranty would make me feel better. Something perfect for a lady, her husband, their baby, and their pup.

Can you help us out, great big world? Anyone have any ideas? Are you selling a car that I want?

me & my carless family.


  1. Oh no! I hope you find just the perfect thing for your family. Good for you not running out to finance something brand new. That's smart!

  2. I hope it works out where we don't have payments. Right now it would just be safer for us to buy a car since I'm trying to work from home and we have a pretty new baby. Our financial situation is totally different than they were a couple of months ago.

  3. I wish I knew if I was going to get a new car- I would love to have a happy home for my golf, but I haven't decided yet!

  4. We're maybe going to take our time.. if we really need to use our car we can fill it with trans fluid first. So maybe if you decide in the next few weeks or so... but that's still kind of quick! What are you thinking of getting if you get something new? Car shopping is exciting but we're not doing it excitedly. Just cheaply. :/
