Waiting For My New Laptop

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'll keep you posted.

  1. Now that you have your new laptop, it'd be good to get back to paying those credit cards down. It's most important to get rid of those high interest loans as soon as you can.

    Keep at it and good luck!
