I got my laptop back from my brother in law today (I love it, it's like having access to Geek Squad 24/7).
I am now in the process of rebuilding my Bookmarks, (does anyone know of a faster way to do this other than opening the bookmark on your old computer and typing the addresses into your new computer?) installing my printers and other such things.
Well, after much research I broke down and bought a new laptop. In 2 weeks I will be the proud owner of a Dell Vostro 1520. I have 4GB of Memory and 320GB of Hard Drive. Thanks to the coupon code my Brother-In-Law found I got a $1142 computer for $742.
You may be wondering how I paid for the laptop.
I split the payment between 2 credit cards (I didn't want such a large charge on one card) and plan to pay the balance with the free check I get on July 31st.
Thanks to this I am going to have to adjust my budget so that I can get back to paying off my credit cards. Right now I am not making any progress in decreasing the balances, but I am better off than I was this time last year.
I am 30 and don't have a dime to my name. It is a sad thing to not be able to take trips, go shopping, have fun of any kind due to having no extra money. This blog will aid me in my journey to financial freedom.
