Alright, first let us start with some background…
My husband is a wanna-be
tightwad frugaloholic. What I mean by this is deep down he likes spending money just as much as I do, he just has a little more self control than I do. When we were first married and had 2 incomes our favorite past times were buying things. Whether it be needed items for the house or stuff that stayed up in the attic and was never heard from again.
After the birth of our son, I quit my job and my husband changed jobs which resulted in much less income. We had to make some sacrifices in order to keep our heads above water.
The biggest? Giving up our Digital Gold cable for basic (and I mean BASIC) cable. Yep, went from 150 channels down to 22. 22!!!
The one thing I wouldn’t give up was our DSL internet. There was no way I was going back to dial up.
Ok, now fast forward… I am back to work just part time and my husband has done really well in his job. He just recently received another promotion which included a pay increase, so we are no longer feeling the strain of finances.
So what do we do??
That’s right BABY!!
We ordered Verizon FiOS TV and Internet!! We have finally caught up with so many dish and cable users. We have about 300 channels and wicked FAST internet! It’s like living in the future!
So now I’m questioning these strange feelings I’m having for my TV and laptop.. It’s like that geeky kid in high school that you thought could be cute if someone would only give him a makeover and then one day in a coffee shop you see a guy that looks sorta like him and then he recognizes you and you realize that he is now H-O-T!!
Yep that’s my TV and laptop.. from geek to chic!
