As all of this was going through my head, I decided then that this was as good a time as ever to review the many subscriptions I have to cut unnecessary costs. It was something I had been meaning to do for a few weeks now. So I opened an excel spreadsheet and started to calculate my monthly and yearly savings by making some adjustments to the subscriptions I have been accumulating. I had initially intended to make this cost-trimming exercise the topic of today’s post, but instead, I thought it best to write about what inspired me to find more ways to save money: a post about this remarkable little laptop that is still going strong.
P.S. I even made a payment on my student loans even though no payments are being collected and no interest is being accumulated during the pandemic. Sometime in the next week, or perhaps even this weekend, I want to put together a spreadsheet to calculate just how much money I can save by making payments on my student loans before they start charging interest again. It will require a far more complicated spreadsheet than what I created today, but it will be worth seeing the potential savings.
