Im really tempted to buy a small some of gold for my mount but yeah i dont know yet just seeing if anyone else has
It's not that hard to save up 80g or whatever it is for a mount. Make sure you're honored with your peeps, and get to Rank 3. That's really not that hard. Then you'll get a total of 20% off.
Then, use your professions, and sell everything you produce. If you were smart and took two gathering (mining/herb + skining) at the start, you can sell everything. Run plenty of instances, and keep EVERYTHING. It all adds up, even grey items. And don't waste money on un-needed luxuries.
start an alt get him up to 5 take up enchating and disenchat stuff that dont sell on the AH then sell the enchating mats on the AH you can make good gold that way
