Thank you so much for all your feedback and advice on my previous post re: weight loss/maintenance. I'll be doing a follow-up post plus will respond to your comments shortly. I hadn't had a chance to do it yet because my laptop decided that it had finally had enough of this cruel world late last week and melodramatically died on me.
So after a weekend of "what to do with this 'free time' business when I can't access the Internet?!" I am currently on a loaner laptop while I wait for a replacement to come in. Bleh ...
Those of you who have read my blog for a while know that a large portion of my "fun" money (dollars left to spend each month after bills, groceries, savings, others, etc.) go to my foodie pursuits and shopping for clothes, shoes, bags, etc. I like to eat and I like to shop. My fun money most certainly does not go to technology.
I've whined my way through a new phone after detonating my original, talked about getting a new camera forever but have yet to commit, and now I'm sitting on my wallet after having to replace my laptop because I'm upset with having to shell out more fun money on considerably unfun things. To me, technology is not fun, it's useful. Plus things with microships in them are ridic expensive (Edit: or microchips. But anything in ship form must cost more than a chip). Seems silly to wait for weeks sometimes for a pair of shoes to get discounted $15 when here I am shelling out $$$ for a phone or computer.
I guess you can call me adverse to change. Or cheap. Both.
So how do you handle unexpected large expenses? And are there items you just can't stand to spend money on?
