well with me, i have a bad habit of impulse buying. lol. i try and save money, but when i see the money ive saved in my account, its hard to not spend it. think the only time ive really saved money is when i got my front and rear bumpers and side skirts and got em painted. if its something i REALLY want and dont have money for it, ill usually use my credit card if their isnt much on the card to begin with.

I get mine for free! I just always make sure to never pay to replace something that I can get that amount back from the OEM part.

Well, my car has been paid off for years, and I have absolutely no debt.
So that helps tremendously. I usually wait until I have plenty of extra money
saved up before buying anything big. The small expenses I just buy as I need/want them.
I work my ass off for my money though. Its definitely not a desk job.
