BF and I are such gadget nerds and that's why I'm thinking of setting up a gadget fund. We have been talking about getting an iPad 2 for our 6 year anniversary in October but we are also debating between a TV or a PS3. Either way, I want to save up for it when the time comes. We currently have a wii right now and play Call of Duty Black Ops everyday on it with our super old TV. It would be nice to upgrade to a PS3 because COD on wii sucks so much (graphics and controller-wise).
My dilemma right now is do I even have enough money to start contributing to these new funds? 20% of my paycheck goes to retirement and most all of it goes to my down payment fund. In June, I'm going to sign up for my company's employee stock purchase plan so that's another contribution. I try to put in $100 each into my travel fund and gift fund. At that point, I wonder how much I will have left to contribute to my shopping and gadget fund? If I can at least put in $50-$100 a month I think it will work out. In total I will have a 401k, Roth IRA, Employee Stock Purchase Plan, E-Fund/Down Payment Fund, Gift Fund, Travel Fund, Shopping Fund, and Gadget Fund....8 total funds...ahh!
How much do you all contribute to your fun saving funds? How many different contributions do you make each month?
