We’ve reached a new point with our electronics…Angeline is now saving up to buy herself the iPhone 5!
That’s right – she is saving up her money to buy it for herself! She currently has an iPhone 4, which we bought as a replacement for the one she broke back in June.
Y’all remember that one, right? She tripped while walking in the hallway and her iphone flew out of her hand, hit the wall, then fell to the floor…
Well, Angeline has only had her new iPhone 4 for about 6 months, and I don’t want to just give it away after she buys her iPhone 5. I think we paid $100 or $200 with our discounted upgrade option. That would be such a waste of money, we’ve done that with all of our other upgrades and I always hear about the person we gave it to dropping it or giving it to someone else when they upgrade…we might as well have just sold our old iPhones and used that money to help pay us back for our new ones.
Since she is being so responsible and trying to save up for the new iPhone 5, I think we should let her sell her iPhone 4 using a service where we can sell my phone and then just use that money towards a new one! That way she can really understand what it’s like to work towards a big purchase and figure out how to earn money to pay for it.
Now, Angeline had about $200 saved from her birthday money, and she was down to $130 when she left for New Mexico last week. I wonder how much she has left, or if her iPhone 5 fund is completely depleted?
Have you ever thought about selling your phone in order to be able to buy a new one?
