    Although I lived at school during college, my parents paid most of my tuition and living expenses. At school, I had no car, I just rode my bike everywhere. Other than a TA position, I never worked during the school year. I lived with them during the summer, and worked at various internships. At home, I had use of any of my parents' cars, and I just paid for gas.

    I made it through college in 4 years, then I got married a week after graduation. My wife and I moved into an apartment near my work. I'm 22, and of course completely support myself and wife. I saved every penny I could for 6 months, then paid cash for my car. Thankfully, neither of us have any student loans or any credit card debt to pay off, which makes saving much easier.

    Don't have my wrx just yet, it's ordered, and whenever it gets here I'll be paying cash for it. Current car (Infiniti G35 coupe) was paid off in the first year of owning it. Wife's Toyota 4Runner was also paid off in the first year of owning it. We were both fortunate and didn't accumulate too much debt in our 20's. By the late 20's we only owed money on our house, all cars/credit/etc were paid off. So for the last 6-7 years now we have just been putting money into the bank instead of paying car payments and we are fortunate enough to be able to just go pay cash for our vehicles now. We are both in our late 30's now.

    God I have been paying for stuff since I could remember. Back way back when I was 16 Me, and my dad drove down to south Jersey to pick up my first VW Corrado G60.. and it didn't run I spent all summer dropping my small bank roll into that car to get it running just to find out I had a bad Super Charger.. I then spent the next 2 years rebuilding it from toe to top! the old 8v g60 was replaced with a 16v turbo charged super 60 monster... I drove it twice with the new swap, and left for basic.. that was ohh almost 7 years ago... I miss that car, but sure as hell love my Bug eye, in a weird kind of way my 02 reminds me of the epic battles I had with my Corrado

    I'm 23 and pay for everything. I don't make a lot of money, but I am very good with saving. I sold my BMW and put all of that down on the WRX. I've always paid for everything for myself though, so I'm used to having to be good with my income.

    You don't have to make a lot of money to afford nice things, just be able to manage it properly.

    Over time I've come to think that most "nice things" are really just "things".

    im 18 turning 19 next month, worked my ass off for a year. Got a good down payment for it, and bought my dream car two weeks ago. I work 50 hours a week as a supervisor at a local carwash. 50% of all my cash will be going towards my car. I pay for everything. Live at home with my parents. Pay a small amount of rent.

    Agree 100%. I'm good at saving money. Cut your spending and you'll find yourself with some leftover cash for savings. If only a few people in my state's government could figure that out!
