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'll keep you posted.
