Americans are so trained that debt is the only way of life. How can we live any other way? It's the spoiled brat inside of us saying I want it NOW! Well honestly I do want it now. Though I want to not be struggling out of the debt hole more. So I can wait. I have to retrain my brain that credit does NOT mean we can afford it. In fact it's really the opposite. Putting it on credit NOW means we won't be able to afford it later and will probably have to end up selling it to pay for it. Saving for it now means we can pay for it later and actually keep it! Or just have some sort of wise use of our money. Even better!
