Last we spoke, my car loan was $6,999.03 and as of today it is $4995.00 for a difference of $2004.03. <—- the good.
A few buttons on my laptop computer recently went belly up so I paid $100 for a diagnosis. To which they confirmed a new keyboard would be needed. I asked and got a hand-written statement that they would give me 60 days to use the same diagnosis test while I gathered the funds. In actuality I will be using this time to get a second opinion on the cost. It is either $160 (parts and labor) with no lighting or $259 with and it will take a week to get parts.
The cost is $1800 for a new computer. The other option is to limp along with a Bluetooth keyboard which I could do, but would dislike for the delay factor. Since I am not using it for work, it shouldn’t be too much of a nuisance. The last option is that I purchase the part myself $39.99 and install it. Which by the help of You Tube is definitely possible, I checked.
I am picking the computer this evening and I have two keyboards that my work gave me. One is Bluetooth while the other is wired. I mainly use this computer for Zoom meetings which I have about 3 to 4 times a week, all of my personal budgeting and really everything that isn’t work related. Oy vey! So now the plan is to pay off my car and possibly get a new computer so about $7200.
There are those who would say to put it on credit, but that isn’t me. I am going to tighten this budget and move forward. Any thoughts are welcome.
Update to the update, the wired keyboard works really well. No delay due to not being Bluetooth. Yippee 😁.
Till next time….🥰
