A Ridiculous Car Payment

I have a confession and it’s such a hard pill to swallow.

I pay $926.20 for my Honda Pilot. It’s outrageous, and makes me incredibly sad. I don’t even know how life got so crazy, and I thought a $926.20 car payment was okay.

Talk about lifestyle creep.

I’m in the process of selling my car back to the dealership, and finding a 4-cylinder vehicle that takes plain ol’ unleaded gas. This V6 and premium gas is killing me, considering that my commute right now is an hour and a half (which is a topic for another day).

The best thing about having made so many crazy money decisions is that it’s really easy to clean up my act!

Well, I wouldn’t say easy. I’m actually quite overwhelmed since it’s such a hassle to buy a car, BUT there are a lot of steps that I can take to cut back on my spending and stash some more cash into savings.

Daily Expenditure:

$60 (for childcare)

$100 (Global Entry Program – Chase will reimburse me $100 for the fee so basically will end up ~free)
