Immediate vs. Delayed Reinforcement

So… I’ve spent the better part of the day looking for a car. There are a lot of options. Actually it is a very different experience car shopping in the snow. Car so it forces you to make your decision based off of the “important” stuff and not the color (Unfortunately the pink Dodge Caliber was sold before I arrived 😔).

My dilemma is whether I should buy a cheap but efficient car now and then get the car I really want around March/April (I want the AWD MINI Cooper) or whether I should spend a bit more and get a nicer/more durable vehicle now, but delaying access to my new MINI.

I think.. the best idea is to fork out more now and not have to worry about it breaking down. This is where the delayed reinforcement comes into play. I know that this is the better option in the long run, but… ugh… not immediate enough to make me feel good about it.
