Nice stuff now? or Nice car later?

As most of you know, i have been without a car for nearly a month now. It sucks balls. One of the main thing that gets me about it is that i have to depend on other people to get to work and back home. Then if i need to run errands or something i cannot do it. it sucks so bad. I havent dry clean my clothes for about a month, good thing i have like 100 of dress shirts but still. So i decided to pursue a new car. I have had about 5000 dollar saved up for a long time, however havent been pushing for the car. Why? i dont know, i had one, didnt want to spend it yet until i knew what i am getting myself into with payments and insurance.

So most of you guys know i want a MINI Cooper Convertible. You can click on the pictures above to check the one i want. I been to MINI USA lots of time designing my car. Usually it comes out to around 24000 which isnt bad at all. However when i am looking at the estimate payments, for a 5 year payment system, 60 payments, 12 a year. It comes out to 369 for a 5000 down. Isnt that bad, i can handle that, but its way too unrealistic for me. Why? Oh cmon, its spring, the spring line is out. Gotta get new clothes. HAHA. I have horrible spending habits and a much worse saving habit. I cant stop spending and i cant start saving. It sucks. However not having a form of transportation has restricted me from spending which is good. I am making more money since the year started off my probation and what not. I am not spending 100 bucks a month on dry cleaning, 200 on gas a month, 200 bucks on dinner dates and shit. X amount on clothes, shoes and electronics. I mean i can save cant I? I will have to if i really want this car, and if i plan on moving out with Jovana.
Ok, so i figure i need to come up with another 5k for a 10k down and payments will be a little more reasonable. Which it was, it took about 100 bucks off. 100 bucks i can spend towards the gas, insurance, rent. Who knows. but yeah. My goal? to save up 5k as soon as i can. so i can get this damn car and start rollin through sunset like i used to. It took me about a week to get 1k. So if i stop spending and shit ill be fine. hopefully. Well no more eating out for sure, no more concerts especially fuckin josh groban ones. God i spend about 1500 on josh groban related concert shiets. I mean im still gonna go, just shitty seats or work my magic for free ones. or not, i cant really enjoy his music anymore right now. long story, but you might read it if i post it. Anyways. No more iPods. haha. i wanted the new one, but i can wait. The only thing that will tax me soon will be my new phones which i will talk about in a bit. Speaking of tax, i hope my tax return is big. SHOOT. That would friggin help out. Man i soo need a pair of Chucks.
100 dollar allowance and THATS ALL!
