Default How do you guys pay for your computer stuff?

I was wondering what do you guys do to pay for all your computer stuff? I have a paper route and I ref soccer games. On a good month I make $250(Depending on the tips I get and how many games I ref)

Credit card . I pay for my parts piece by piece when I get some spending money. I try to rush it so I can test out the key components (to make sure they're not DOA).

I work and work and work. When I'm not making all my car payment, cell phone bill, insurance, tuition, books, credit card payments, etc, etc.. then I'll buy some parts.
