We are the proud owners of a...

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 19,200 miles.

It has had great owners.

Us.

While the appeal of a brand new shiny car, complete with that toxic new car smell is super appealing.

The appeal of not having a car payment is even more appealing, in 6 months the newness would have worn off and I'd probably be looking at that $300 car payment wishing I'd have just kept my Jeep with no car payment.

Good for you Jill! It's got to feel amazing to no longer have a car payment. We are working on paying off my husband's truck before the baby comes. Neither of us have ever NOT had a car payment, so it'll be nice to have that extra money each month (even though it'll go straight to preschool and newborn diapers. Oy).

You now, there was a time in I believe 2000/2001 where I didn't have a car payment. For six months. The only time in 20 years. I think I missed them too much!

Drive that sucker until the wheels fall off.
