I bought a house 1.5 years out of college, then I got the car a year later.
I've been good at saving money since I started working. I bought most of the stuff I have used off of Craigslist (couch, table, weight set, bike, vacuum, even my bed). I found a used 2011 ZCP with 14k miles on ebay, put 20k down, and now my payments are $700/month. I just recently got my first credit card which I only use to buy gasoline for the 5% discount.
I decided to buy the car now while I'm still young and single and don't have too many responsibilities. Plus my money was starting to burn a hole in my pocket and I was probably going to waste it anyway.
