I quickly mentioned last week in my WMC, but felt like it needed its own post:
J and I bought the new iPad!
I know, it’s exciting. :)
We did our taxes a month or so ago and were delighted to find we were going to receive about $1,800 back from Uncle Sam. Pretty sweet, eh? (That’s what happens when you get married and forget to change your W2. Oops. I don’t recommend doing it that way, but it was nice to get a large chunk of change all at once.)
Like good responsible adults, we decided to save $1,000 of it in our emergency fund, give away $300 to charity, and use the remaining $500 on something fun. We thought of different things we wanted — a sewing machine, a new hair straightener, an ottoman, curtains, new clothes (really all things I wanted) or splitting it up so we each had $250.
And then the new iPad was announced and it was decided. We both knew we would get more use out of the iPad than just spending the money on a bunch of smaller things. And so far we love it!
But I would love your help! Users of the iPhone and iPad:
What are the best apps?
What are your favorite games?
What are some time-saver / organizing apps?
This tech newbie would love to know. :)
