Win 7 Pro x64, VM Win XP, Win7 Pro Sandbox, Kubuntu 11

the Computer. Than when you have accumulated the necessary funds, buy it.

This accomplishes three things,

1. It gives you time to be sure that this is really what you want to spend
your money on.

2. It saves the Dollars which would be wasted on finance charges.

3. You will make a little from the interest bearing account.

And a bonus: In the mean time you may find that their is something else
which you may want more and now you will still have this option.

It is a Win Win situation. The only hard part is the waiting, but the
satisfaction you will feel at the end will be priceless.


PS: It may also get you in the habit of saving money which will improve
your life for years to come.
Thank you rerice !

That's an excellent idea, I've got a savings account but have never used it yet but now I will.

thanks again guys as they say : "Patience is a virtue" and "Good things happen to those who wait." Cliches, yes but it's true !

Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition

a lot of this is how you grew up, for instance im a want person, i take care of my responsibilities and i feel like i deserve to have nice shiny new things, it's very evident that i got this obsession with stuff from my parents. macie(my boss/gf for those in the know) is different, she is worried something will happen someday and we will go broke and wants to save every penny for when that time comes. this comes from her mom.
