1. make an accurate budget of your bills (if any). include miscellaneous things and entertainment money.

2. open up a savings account. When you cash your paycheck, take the apportioned amount of money you have figured in your budget to be 'extra' and put it in there. If you open up a savings account that adds a small fee when you withdraw, you will be less likely to take money out of it. Also, just having your money in a not so readily accessible place will make you less likely to spend it thumbsup

i used microsoft works to make my budget, personally..but there are many ways it can be done (not all of which require a computer)

good luck..it's harder than it seems.

just remember that when making your budget..be lenient. don't keep cutting it to extremes where you 'think' you can make due with this amount of $$. be fair to yourself (your young so it's not like you need to stress over paying bills upon bills.

proportion out a pretty fair amount of entertainment expenses and force yourself to keep to it. also remember that friends birthdays, graduations, dances, etc do happen and you will need to spend $$ on those events.

Even if you can save 50-100 a week--that's awesome.

good luck with it..hope you get your car thumbsup

If you want to save money and you have a girlfriend, dump her (unless she's rich). wave You save mad money that way if you really want a Supra.

Yeah but I am thinking of maybe a MK3 single Turbo until I get my MK4 TT what do yall think about that plan? cause June 14th I turn 18 and my dad is getting me a loan or a finace and im thinking maybe a MK3 to get used to the power they have because I was gonna bye my dads vette off him but I am scared of that bitch every time I drive it I get scared but then again a supra is 10x better so I think ill get an MK3 and save until I am used to the supra feeling.

MKIV Supra (I presume) certainly is nice, a bit pricey for the early ones but the big thing to consider is insurance (big bucks) and repairs which can be pretty expensive on a 93 or 94 car (since those are the cheapest MKIV's due to their age) sooo save up lots and lots!

I know how you feel though, I wanted a Supra pretty bad and I checked a couple out (sat in them and started them up) but the repairs and insurance is what stopped me, and I know a guy who bought a '93.5 and the Turbo's ended up blowing so he had to dump money into that and other parts.

The best way for me to save money is not to eat out so much. I realize I waste so much money when I go out to eat when I could be eating my parents' food. As for dumping the girlfriend, well... mine buys things for me and is really good to me, so I dont mind dropping money on her, plus she pays her way most of the time thumbsup

Yeah when you turn 18 you should wait tables at a chain restaurant. I started at Chili's, and it with a lot of hard work, in 3 months I became a bartender there. good money, and I've been doing it for about 10 months.

apply and see if their hiring. you wont start as a driver, you'll be a handler in a warehouse. you'll sort and stack the freight into big ass cans that go on planes and trucks. thats what i do and its cake.

if you ask me, i say finish your studies queicker...gain experience faster (ie: voluntere), don't waste your time/energy on drugs and shit you don't need.
if you do the math right, you will end up getting your supra faster than someone who works his ass off min wage...

my advice..simply cut away entertainment things...20 bux here and there adds up.you dont realize how much money you spend until you stop soending it..and you see how much it all adds up. if you cut out the small things..you could b saving like 300 a month. and thats enough to finance.
