The things I am wanting to save for this year...


2023 is the year where I am finally going to stop wasting my money and actually save up for the items I really want, in the past I have been spending money for the sake of it making impulse purchases that go to waste and then I can't afford those purchase I actually really want. This year though I am absolutely determined to cut back on those wasted purchases and actually really think about things before purchasing them. I am only going to buy things that have been on my mind for a while that way it should free up money for me to save for those big items I have wanted for a while that are actually going to help me achieve my goals and progress with my little projects. So here are the items I am aiming to save for...

New iPad

I got a secondhand iPad mid 2022 and I have been loving using it to create content on the go however, due to its age I am unable to do a few things plus I would love one that is compatible with the Apple Pencil as it would make editing etc that bit easier. This is definitely going to be an expensive purchase but is one that is going to benefit me in so many ways so fingers crossed it doesn't take too long to save up for. As I level up my content this year I think it is going to be a great purchase to help me smash my content goals as I can be productive from anywhere.

Gaming PC

My gaming PC is knocking on a bit now and is slowing down and can't run as many games as I would like. I have a huge backlog of games in my Steam library and honestly I think my computer can run about half of them however, as I am trying to gaming on my PC a lot more I am going to try save up for an upgrade, a new gaming PC would definitely get me flying through that backlog and hopefully enable me to play some more powerful games that I haven't had the chance to play in the past. This is definitely going to be an expensive purchase so I am going to try to earn this by getting through as much of my Steam library as possible whilst saving up, no point making the purchase if I aren't going to play it as much as I would like. 

Dji Osmo Gimbal

The Dji Osmo gimbal has been a wish list item for so long but I just haven't been able to justify the price yet however, in 2023 I am going to change that as I am going to save a little bit each month towards buying this item. It really is going to be a game changer as I start adding move video content to my social media as it will stabilize the videos and provide better quality. As I work on the fitness side of my content and the football content this could really become a lifesaver and I am really looking forward to finally picking one up. 

Rode Wireless Microphones

These are another item that are mainly for my football content but I haven't purchased them yet due to the price tag. I am determined though to save up for these as they would be really beneficial to some of the content I plan on creating as my confidence etc grows. I think as the confidence grows I could also end up using these for some fitness content in the future too so I would definitely get my money worth out of these items. 

Headsets for consoles

I keep saying I am going to buy a new headset for each of consoles however, every time I go to purchase one I just can't bring myself to pay the price they are currently at. For how often I have played on the consoles lately I just haven't been able to justify the cost of them as I won't get the use out of them. I am trying to get more gaming done this year though so as I am playing more I will also be saving to try get these headsets at long last. I concentrate more with all other noise blocked out so they will definitely be a beneficial purchase. At least as I am saving up for these I can play plenty of games to warrant the headset purchase. 


I have had my eye on one of these for a while now and after watching more and more videos of it on YouTube I think I need to pick one up for myself and maybe I would be kind enough to share it with Liam. I am definitely going to have to play a lot more games to warrant getting one of these as they are on the pricey side of things and at the moment I can't justify it. With how long it is going to take to save for all these items I think it is safe to say I should be gaming enough to warrant this purchase by then.

New Camera

This is another pretty expensive purchase tech wise but it is one I have again wanted for a while as I know it is going to be really beneficial for me especially Instagram wise. I am aiming to pick up a vlog style camera to help me with my little projects and if I am honest I think this is going to be one of the first purchases I make as it will mean I can really hit the ground running with improving my content which is what I really want to do this year. 

So there you go those are the new items I am saving up for to either level up my content or just to improve my gaming experience. Those items to improve my content are definitely the top priority at the moment as that is where my focus for the year lays. Fingers crossed I can start purchasing some of these items very soon.
