Honestly, shopping is always such a chore for me. The only thing that is “easy” for me is food shopping. Anything else tends to be tough for me. Right from clothes shopping, up to car shopping.
I love looking a new cars – when it’s for fun and I’m purely just “window shopping.” When it comes to NEEDING a new car and NEEDING to go shopping, it’s tough!
A few years ago when I was in a car accident and my car was totaled, besides all of the medical issues that it brought, it meant I also needed to go car shopping. (For inquiring minds: someone “sneezed,” which caused him to run a red light & hit me.) #newcarface
ANYWHO! I had so much fun from the start – car shopping with my dad…looking at cars online and then going to the dealership to look at them…coming back home, researching more, and going back to the dealership. It was a fun experience (mostly because I got to do it with my dad) for the most part. It got stressful quickly because I needed to make a decision since I needed a way to get to work.
After countless hours researching, tons of different dealership, lots of online searches, I finally found the perfect car which led me to having that new car face. (Actually…my dad did!) It was the best decision for me at the time and the car is still treating me well! I am very happy that my dad persuaded me in the direction that he did.
