See..you must have one nice job for a part time college student.Originally posted by MaK10
im 21, in school full time, 17 credit hours.... and only work 3 days a week and i have plenty of money to pay the 380 a month payments.. i usually make 500 a month payments anyways :P hehe plus cell and insurance and gas.... i just dont do much else.... but with the school and work, i dont have time to do anything else.... so it all works out, but hey at least i have a hot ride to roll around in on the weekends... and plus, any extra money i need..... one word.... ebay!
if you work 8 hour shifts 3 days a week thats 24 hours.
car payment $500
insurance..maybe $200+ (you're under 25)
cell phone $40
random spending money $50 (you gotta eat, right?)
thats total of $850/96hrs a month
thats $8.85 you make an hour with out tax..so you must make $11 to $13 an hour.
There is no 3 day a week job for an non professional student that pays that well where I come from (believe me Ive looked). If I may ask, what exactly is it that you do that pays so well for so little time per week??
Sure I could probably make $11 an hour if I was FULL time and had a few years experience under my belt...but for me thats unrealistic. I have to continue to claim the $24K for a full time college student is a HELL of a lot. I noticed that you didnt mention school or housing in your budget, so I am assuming your parents take care of that. My parents pay for my housing and school too, but they sure arent gonna help me buy a $24,000 car. So, again, I just hope that someday my future consists of statements such as "Dude..its only $24,000".
