Savings Goal!

Alright guys I talked a little about this earlier, but I've decided what I'm going to do so I'm back to talk about it officially. I've decided to save up for a flash memory camcorder. I've looked around at the different brands and types out there. What I want is something that can fit in my pocket, upload to the internet easily, record at night, and go with my every where. I was looking around and had it narrowed down to two. The Sony Bloggie or the Flip UltraHD. I looked at specs and customer reviews and it looks like the Flip UltraHD comes out on top!

So here's my plan:

40% of my paycheck is going to go toward savings from here on out.

(Actually the majority of my next paycheck is going to my dad. I have to pay him back for some clothing items I bought. But after THAT 40% of my paycheck is going toward savings, lol)

My goal is $200. What I've found is cheaper than that, but last time I bought a camera I saved JUST enough to buy the camera and it ended up costing me about $80 more for the other things I needed to USE the camera so this time I'm factoring in any accesory costs. I'm very bad with money, but I figure this is a good way to improve. I'm going to cut out buying anything I don't need from here on out. Anything else I want I can ask for as presents, lol.

So right now the Flip UltraHD fund looks like this:

Paying back Dad: $0
Flip Ultra HD: $0
Current Goal: $200

That will change when I get my paycheck on Monday or Tuesday.

Until next time, have a magical day!
