Question by QBert James Creed: When to stop saving and start shopping for car?
I’m going to need a small pickup sometime next april/may, to start a lawn business. I have $ 2000 now and I can save around $ 500 a month. Should I start looking for $ 2000 deals now or wait until I’ve doubled my money? Very unsure about when to start spending.

Did I hear something about making or saving money?
I could tell you how to be frugal like me.
How to save the money you have: Stay away from cigarettes & drugs! use cantines instead of buying waterbottles or sodas, get water instead of sodas at the movies & restaurants, try to eat at buffets instead of restaraunts, shop for clothes & furniture at discount stores, use spiral bulbs instead of normal bulbs, watch movies on putlocker or youtube instead of buying or renting them, when you buy a car buy a small efficient one instead of a truck or SUV, & if you ever build your own house order white roofing instead of the usual dark. Another somewhat frugal habit is using progressive grammar like me (&>and, 2>two, 1st>first, %>percent) when you’re writing papers. If books used progressive grammar they’d be shorter & cheaper to make.
How to make some money: Collect cans & other scrap metals & take it up to your local metal recycling place that pays you. If you have any books or DVDs you don’t want anymore sell them to Half Priced Books. If you have any unwanted gold or silver sell it to Cash4gold. When you pass by vending machines look in the coin slots for coins. In my experience 1/10 of them have coins.
If you’re a kid & some of this doesn’t apply to you, saving on electricity still saves your parents money. If you wanna be radical then follow power4patriots & make your house energy independent.
With that money, it would be best to spend it on stuff that will improve your life & stuff that will last such as spiral bulbs, new leather furniture, or emergency supplies. This world would be a much better place if everybody was frugal & I hope I am making this world better by answering questions like this. If you don’t wanna pick me as best answer at least let me know if my advice has helped you & if you wanna become frugal too. It’s up to us to make our future better by spreading frugality.
