Illustration for article titled Why do I do this to myself?

I need a new car. Mine has 253k and is ticking; it’s only a matter of time before I lose a valve seat.


So, I’m constantly shopping for a new car. I’ve pretty well narrowed down the model I want, so I randomly searched for it on Craigslist tonight, to show my wife what it would be like.

And I found the perfect one. Posted 8 hours ago. For $1500. With 100k miles. And, of course, I’m completely broke right now.


I should just wait to shop until I have money. Of course, this one will be sold long before I have the cash. It’s just irritating, though. Of course, once I do have cash, I won’t be able to find one I can afford.
