Laptop Fund About to Be Funded Again

September 10th, 2015 at 09:00 am

As a side note, I am starting a Nook Fund next payday. DH really wants one and since we have been holding on not getting smart phones and because he travels so much AND because we have been talking about it for about a year and it doesn't seem to be an impulse want, I am putting it into the budget. I will call it the Nook Fund, but I will keep track of it in the category of Laptop Fund.

And speaking of the Laptop Fund, as soon as the Nook is funded and purchased, I will begin saving for a replacement laptop for my old Windows 7 machine. So far it is doing okay, but it has a couple of glitches. If you tilt the screen back too far it shuts off. I'm sure that means a loose wire. The fan doesn't always work and the DVD player is broken. When it does work it sounds like an airplane taking off, but most of the time it won't even start anymore.

This is not a deal breaker, as I have a portable USB DVD drive that I can use with it. The only DVD player I have access to is with my computer (and DH has one in his). I have a lot of series on DVD's that we own and many we can borrow from family and we get DVD's from Netflix because not everything we want to see streams, so it would be nice to have a more functional one. We don't have a TV anymore, so we don't have that as an option to hook up a regular DVD player.

So while I will muddle on with this computer until it stops functioning, I want the money in place for when it does.
