What’s up! Here’s a quick post and look in to how I was able to pay for my own car in full and in cash at 20! Enjoy, XO.
First, I want to say that this post is not a “how-to” post. I’m not giving out tips and tricks on how to buy your own car in cash or anything like that because my approach is going to be different than a ton of girls my age. However, I am sharing with you how I did it with the hopes that I can motivate and inspire people around my age to not be afraid of big purchases.
To start things off, there’s no secret formula – in all honesty, I could never save money to save my life. I never imagined at the beginning of 2016 that I would have even bought my own car. Needless to say, anything is possible ! I own my own creative boutique where I design logos, websites, and graphics for female entrepreneurs and that’s how I was able to pay for my car. Now, I have another job where I work 15 hours a week but if I only used that to pay for my car I would still be saving up. With this being said, my business allowed me to make larger sums of money in order for me to pay for my car with two months of saving. I could charge anywhere from $650-$6,000 for services depending on the requests I would get. So see how that’s a lot faster than working a job that pays $8-9 an hour (no shade here) – don’t get me wrong…I made larger amounts quicker yet the work just as hard.
This is why I couldn’t make a tips post because not everybody has their own business at 20 and I wouldn’t have been able to give y’all what you needed because I wouldn’t be experiencing what most girls my age would when saving for a car. Now, you don’t have to pay for yours in full like I did, but put down a down payment or start saving now! Even if you don’t want to buy a car, choose another purchase to save for because it all starts somewhere! I really hope this post helped the non-savers out there gain some hope that saving and making purchases – big or small – is possible! Bye for now, xoxo!
