In July I decided to start saving for a new laptop before anything bad happens to the one I’ve been using for the past 5 years.
My plan is to take up extra bookkeeping and blogging/writing on the side, then use all the proceeds towards my laptop goal.
Buying new bookkeeping software and a new Office Suite costs are included in the savings goal.
I will probably get another Dell laptop, just a normal XPS series, since I don’t need many extras.
It’s easy to keep track of my goal by using Mint.com‘s Goals feature, and I only have 1 month left!
Savings Goal – $1,300
- Regular savings – $240 (pay myself first)
- Side Bookkeeping – $203
- Substitute teaching – $18
- Freelance writing – $45
Total saved this month – $506
July savings – $150
August savings – $427
Amount to go – $217
Please leave me some good suggestions for laptops you recommend or use.
