MEMORIES OF BUYING MY FIRST CAR

This post is sponsored by Capital One. As always all opinions are my own.
Buying my first new car was a big deal and pretty big accomplishment for me. That is one of those moments I will never forget, there is just something about adulting that makes you feel so good. It was a white 2006 Honda Civic Coupe and I loved it! About 10 years ago when I was 22! I remember it was November 19, 2005... it was my cousin's birthday that's why I remember it to the date! I'm usually not this great with dates, haha. As amazing as I felt, I remember how annoying the buying process was! My mom and I spent hours, no joke, I think it was 4-5 hours at the dealership getting the whole process going. I always remember thinking, this can't be normal. But it was. Back then and even now (to some people) buying a car can be a pretty tedious and annoying thing to do. But not anymore! If you read my last post you know we have been planning to buy a new car, a bigger car that is more comfortable and just perfect for our family. Which is why I have been using Capital One Auto Navigator Site. It's so easy to find the car that you love and have all the info you need right in one spot. You can customize your down payment, monthly payment and even do all your interested rate research. You can find out in minutes if you qualify for auto financing. And guess what? It won't even affect your credit score! This is a a huge plus for me, I am always so uncomfortable running my credit overtime I apply for something. 
As a busy mom and wife, I am so happy car buying now-a-days is so much more simple thanks to Capital One Auto Navigator Site; it's reliable, convenient and so easy, anyone can do it. It takes the stress away from car shopping all from the comfort of your own home. Having 2 small kids, I don't have time, or patience if we are being honest, to sit at a dealership for hours on end.  I am sure I am not the only parent who appreciates this, the more time I save just means I have more time to spend with my loved ones. I can't wait to finance our car, if all goes well we should be owning a new car by next year:)
