Your example is ridiculous. Anyone with enough discipline to use sinking funds isn't going to buy a brand new car!

And for all of you confused about "grand" ... It's RAND not GRAND.   Rand is the currency in South Africa ... ;)

Oe Lekker! I'm so glad you got to enjoy some of our beautiful country! I'm from Johannesburg but the Western Cape is definitely the best of SA. Thanks for the awesome comment!

Hi Q Vasta Mwiinga. Don't quite understand why your so upset about the video. SF Method def by investopedia: "A technique for depreciating an asset in bookkeeping records while also generating money to purchase a replacement for the asset when it reaches the end of its useful life. Under the sinking fund method, the business sets aside an amount of money to invest annually so that the principal plus the interest earned in the fund will be enough to replace the asset."

Rand not grand lol. And I have to say, I disagree sold my honda after 3 years and lost $400 on it. Bought it for $4100 sold it for $3700. This sinking fund thing is what I've been doing for about a month. By the way if I was to live in South Africa again I'd get a citi golf. I love citi golfs. Just saying. Damn South African currency has devalued so much its insane. I only have a sinking fund for car maintenance not replacement as I'm hoping it will last forever.

Hehe, sorry for the confusion: our currency in South Africa is Rand (R). So I'm saying rand, not grand. But thanks for the feedback :)

Haha! Hi Jordon. I'm glad you liked the video. BTW I'm not saying 40 000 grand, I'm saying 40 000 rand. Rand is the currency we use in South Africa (R). Sorry for the confusion, but if I use dollars my students will be even more confused :P

I liked the video, but yes, the "40 thousand grand" being said every minute was throwing me off ...its either 40 grand, or 40 thousand. Not 40 thousand grand :)

Nice video.. p.s. one grand = 1000
