How much should you spend on tech? (according to the dollar-per-use rule)
Obviously, I think investing in the right smartphone, tablet or computer can have a positive impact on our lives. But How much is too much?
Here's a tool which should help determine what your budget cap should be according to the 1$ per use rule. It's definitely not a new rule and it simply boils down to this: Before making a purchase, ask yourself "Will I use this at least once for each dollar it's costing me?"
It's a simple rule, but unless you're tracking your gadget usage carefully, it can be hard to estimate how much we actually use them.
This Quiz will first help you answer that question. We will then consider how much you have to spend to keep your gadgets running and determine a budget.
