Hellllllllllllllo! It’s Money Monday here on My Pocketful Of Thoughts! We’re carrying on the theme of what to get for the people on your list this Holiday Season. Last week I told you about how Daniel and I are giving each other the gift of time and memories in, Vacation, Take two of these and Call me in the morning. My goal, in suggesting us to take a vacation as our Christmas gift this year was so I would not have to spend extra money. I would pay for myself and he would pay for himself and voilà that’s our gift. Last year I did go a bit overboard on the spending and did NOT want a repeat of that this year.
A few weeks ago, Daniel
“claimed” that I reminded me that I had mentioned in passing that, if I did not have another Christmas gift for Christmas day from him, there would be hell to pay. I do not recall stating this but then again it could be altogether possible. I like opening something on Christmas Day and he gives the best gifts. So Black Friday weekend, he calls me up to tell me The Samsung Galaxy S III was on sale at a few locations. Next thing I know we’re racing down to a store in Norwalk in hopes that they’ll still have one phone left by the time we get there. An hour and a half after getting there, I walked out with my Christmas present. Normally I would huff and puff because I now have nothing to open on Christmas Day. HOWEVER, because I am absolutely in love with this phone and my new carrier, Verizon Wireless, I am not complaining. He knew because of the price, I would not buy it for myself. Today’s tip: Buy your loved one something that they would not buy themselves because of the price tag. If your budget does not allow it, look for alternatives in your price range.
Do you remember when you bought your car? Do you remember how every time you looked around while driving, someone was driving the same model, maybe in a different color or the exact same shade you fell in love with? Well now that I am on Verizon, I am in tune with all things Verizon-like. Yesterday I saw this hilarious commercial by Kevn Hart about his family wanting a real Christmas tree. I cannot even remember if my family ever had a real Christmas tree. Can you?
In case you need a laugh, I’ll leave you with the commercial, of course, its on Youtube! Find out what kind of tree comedian Kevin Hart prefers!
PS. What should I get Daniel for Christmas?!
