Back in January, our oldest daughter hit a New Milestone by getting her first job. Since then, she has done a fantastic job saving money. She only spends about $20/week for a couple lunches out with friends. The rest has been saved.
She has done exactly as we instructed. She has been setting aside 10% of her pay every month. She has also been saving separately for her big ticket item goal. On Monday she ordered it online.
She bought herself a new MacBook Pro. It cost her $4779.04. She bought the top end model in hopes that it will last her a few years. Especially going on to university.
She was excited to finally have something tangible in front of her after ten months of hard work. Even after spending a large lump sum on a new computer, she still has a lot left over. She is planning on spending some monthly on Adobe products for her passion in photography. I’m really happy for her that she experienced the first true sensation of what devoting her time at work can get her.
I have a feeling we won’t be seeing much of her this weekend as she sets the computer up the way she likes it.
