Should I blow my savings?
Good for you for saving so diligently, babe! When it comes to spending your hard-earned moolah, only you can decide what’s worth your entire savings…or even a small part of it. If you’re having second thoughts now that your goal is within reach, consider your quandary carefully. It might be helpful to go to a computer store just to see what your money could buy. If you want to spend all $900, you could probably get a pretty good comp. But for a fraction of that—say just a couple hundred bucks—you could purchase a portable netbook or tablet.
Also consider the other savings goals that are coming up. If you’re going to be driving soon, you might want to keep saving the money you make for a car. If there’s a pricey camp you want to enroll in during the summer, your money could go toward that. Or, you could keep it handy for college.
