Hey, nothing wrong with rewarding yourselves! Also, buying a car for transportation is completely utilitarian, so don't worry about being materialistic. Now, if you're buying a car for showing off then that's a different story. But you guys clearly are not.

Definitely not materialistic. A car can be considered a need by most people nowadays, especially when you have work, family and kids.

I commute 20 miles for my job, so having my own vehicle is necessary.
I mostly work 3rd shifts, buses don't run after dark. On day, I'm scheduled as early as 6 am. Don't think I wanna wait for the bus at 5 am in the morning.

hm, saving is very important and knowing you have something to fall back on for whatever reason is verrry comforting. You seem to be cautious with your spending's, which is great! you also seem very considerate!

Spend some money! not like you'll be able to take it with ya once you're gone! not suggesting to "yolo" either. Treat yourself, that's all
