Get a Used Car or No Car
Why Get a brand new car and finance it when you can have a preowned car that’s just as good?Â Did you know a car’s value drops nearly 40% just by driving it off the lot?Â Â If you insist on having a car get a preowned car.Â Â And if you don’t really need a car, then don’t drive one at all.Â Â Savings here is in the hundreds.
Is That Really Necessary???
This is a list you can draw up in about 5 seconds.Â Â Look at every single expense you paid last month.Â I’m talking everything.Â Â From the groceries you buy to the clothes you wear.Â Wait till you see how much dumb shit you have on there.Â Â Trust me, you didn’t need that neon basketball lamp that you never put up in the basement.Â Â Make a category called “dumb transactions” and don’t make them anymore.Â Â I’m pretty confident you can save at least 200 a month that way.
There, we’re talking at least 500-1000 a month in savings all within five minutes.
