I want to buy a different car but I keep psyching myself out because I’m conditioned to save save save and have anxiety about it. What’s the point of making money if I can’t buy something that I would enjoy?

Balance is key! If this year has shown me anything it's that we're not guaranteed all the time in the world.

So if a new car would make you happy and isn't going to put you in financial ruin, I think it's worth it.

Great point. This year has put a lot into perspective. It definitely wouldn’t ruin me financially. I’ve got like 2 years worth of living expenses saved and that doesn’t include investments/retirement.

I get it. I have a hard time spending money, but i’ve made my peace with it. I’m just saving all the money so I can retire into tinkering and side hustles ASAP.

Same dilemma. The thing that keeps me from buying one is the thought of ‘if I don’t, it’s one less year I have to work.’ (Ever hopeful of a slightlyyy early retirement.

I'm selling my car. Buy it off me?

Too late, sorry!
