14. We replaced his with an IPHONE, we got the double whamy of the
his Electronic organizer failing at the same time and since Palm wasn't out with the Treo... and he uses it as a PDA too. Me, will keep my simple phone even if when it fails. I am happy with just the PDA... err Touch... I use the damn thing for all kinds of stuff, even writing on the road. Yes, I'd love to get an I-phone but the data package, they're nuts.

And I know, why I use the credit card only as a small line of credit to be paid the same month. I got those habits from dad and mom... but I remember telling this to Navy Wives in housing. They saw us use the same old TV... while they replaced it with a new flat screen. Hell the TV I have right now, tuned to PBS... that thing is over nine years old.

And I thank them for those habits.

My hubby said it one time.. he has no clue how I do it... but before we married, he never had money in them pockets, these days he does, and a saving account...

I just look for them deals as it were. We only "splurge" in our hobby, and of course the toys for the parrots... which either is the wood blocks or my moulding.

But telling people reduce consumption is revolutionary. In fact, very revolutionary indeed.
