iPad mini

Confession: I went down to the Apple store at lunch today and really wanted to get the new iPad Mini but then reality set in and I remembered that I have close to $8,000 of credit card debt so I don't NEED this device, my current iPad 2 works just fine. Today I'm saying NO to iPad Mini.


Now, this new iPad would make a great holiday gift so I already emailed my mom hoping she gets me one. iPad is the most popular gadget in our family, everyone has one so. After a few minutes, I see a reply back from her iPad telling me NO, she said this year our little baby girl gets all the nice gifts... maybe the wife will buy me one?

  1. You really are materialistic. NO - the wife should NOT buy YOU anything. Your DAUGHTER should be the focus.

  2. What?? If you're $8000 in the hole, your wife is too. You are married. That means if you can't afford the iPad mini, neither can your wife so she can't get it for you for Christmas.

  3. Well, not buying it is a huge step for you. But don't you think asking Mom is a little immature?

    Once you have kids....holidays are about THEM. I hope you enjoy your daughter's first Christmas....and not sit there bumming you didn't get more.

  4. Hate to echo everyone else, but I kind of cringed at the title of the post, and cringed more at the rest of the post... Your iPad2 works. Leave it at that. Debt is not just a number; it's a mentality.

  5. Good for you not buying one. I expected to see that you had AND if you saw my blog you KNOW how bad I want one. But you are right it would make a perfect gift....for you to give me? :) Yes?

  6. I hate to also say what everyone else said, but your iPad should be just fine.

  7. Your needs should be prioritized and not your wants. you may want to apply for payday advance if you really want to have an iPad mini.

  8. I am impressed that you walked out of that store with no ipad! Way to go!

    But yes, after the kids arrive, the parents get a small gift or two, and the grandkids get the bit stuff... which is as it should be.

    Don't ask your wife for the ipad. She can't afford it either.

  9. Oh, and I don't have an ipad, or an iphone. I was able to get an ipod touch, with the use of my father's accumulated credit card points which he offered me. Now my kids have taken over the ipod and I still don't have one.

    We discovered face time, which was neat for my son. He could talk to his buddy in Japan. He has no idea that back in my day we had "pen pals." lol.
