    Weekend get away. No kids, families, work or cellphones.

    Is it a type of bracelet that can stay on through showers, when you're sleeping, while you're enjoying your hobbies, outdoors or doing other things you love to do? I think you work with young children. Can it stay on during your work?
    Jewelry is hard with the kids because the 3 year old girls want to wear it all the time. But I wonít always be doing this. 😜 about 7 more years and I am done working.

    How much is it?

    If your phone is on your last legs - i would get one and consider it at least partially a business expense if you rely on it for your daycare --- and save the Christmas money and add it to the next Christmas money to buy something really special.

    I write off 20% of my phone as business expense which is good. And if I upgrade now I can save $50 a month on my bill which is already $300 a month ( welcome to Canada lol)

    The bracelet is only a few hundred as it is on sale right now and goes with the ring I got for Christmas. The Christmas money is from my MIL.

    Get the phone and put the $50 per month that you save on the bill away until you can buy the bracelet and the rest put into savings. Or buy both and then reimburse the general fund with that $50 a month until you paid yourself back for the bracelet.

    So I bought the tennis bracelet and earrings that went with my ring and had a few shekels left over!

    Much better than more and more clutter. Enjoy life. More new gizmos and trinkets is something that only brings momentary interest.
