I've pretty much accepted that March is going to be a big bus riding month. Possibly April too. My plan is to acquire another compact car with a manual transmission. I just happen to have cheap taste in cars. I like them small and without too many features. This bodes well for my future in car shopping.
After driving a 1991 Geo Metro Convertible for two years, I think I have a pretty simple idea of what makes a "good" car. Basically, I think I am in the market for something tiny made around 1995.
I realize though that in order to procure something tiny made around 1995, I am going to need to pay in full. Basically, I hate the idea of debt. So, that's why this is going to take until Possibly as late as early May. If I don't have a car by then, we can all rest assured that I will just take out a loan for the rest of it. Or I'll buy something older and cheaper than I really want.
So, that's the plan. I've sort of given up hope on Jerry.
Waste is still leaving as scheduled last I heard.
So, on the topic of saving money... I think today when I get home I am going to buy myself a filing cabinet. I was at a consignment store yesterday, and I saw a filing cabinet I really want. I have been needing a filing cabinet at home since roughly sixth grade when I stopped being able to throw anything written on paper away. Seriously. I have two boxes in the living room and one or two in the bedroom that are waiting for me to buy a filing cabinet. The cabinet in question costs $2. I smoke more than that in two days. So, I think I am going to buy a filing cabinet.
Of course, then I'll have to buy files and hanging folders and all the stuff, but I swear I have been wanting to buy one for a long time. I need it.
There were a lot of other things at the consignment store I thought I wanted. It's a really, really low priced place. Seriously. I've been in a lot of used furniture stores. This one is quite affordable. E mail me if you want to know where it is.
So, I think I am going to buy the filing cabinet, and I am going to work really hard to not buy anything else. Cause I have to save money. I hate the damned bus.
