DESCRIBE A TIME WHEN YOU SPENT A LOT OF MONEY ON SOMETHING (SEPTEMBER TO DECEMBER 2019) (SEPTEMBER to DECEMBER 2019)
Describe a time when you spent a lot of money on something (SEPTEMBER to DECEMBER 2019)
You should say:
- What was it
- When did you buy it
- From where did you buy it
and say did you have to save money for it.
The expensive thing that I recently bought is a Sony Vaio laptop which cost me around $2000. The Sony laptop I bought is a third generation i7 laptop and it came with the original Windows 8 operating system. I bought it 3 months ago from the computer market. This is the largest computer and electronics market in our city. I bought it from the Sony showroom and they gave me 2 years warranty on my laptop.
Yes, I had to save money to buy it. My previous laptop was getting out-of-date and I needed a new laptop with better configuration. I finalised my budget after comparing the prices and brands 7-8 months ago and I started saving money from then.
My father has given me the 50% of the price and remaining half came from my savings. I saved the money from the amount I earn from my part-time job and a portion of the money was saved from the monthly expense I got from my parents. Thus I saved the amount required to purchase the laptop in my bank account and withdrew the whole amount before I purchased it.
I was so happy to have this new laptop even though it cost me more than I could afford as a student.
