I, like many people, am one to seek out technology to help with daily life or just make things easier. However, as new devices enter the marketplace I am also quick to replace what I have with something better. The result is a small collection of used and now unused items. One example is I have 2 gps units that I purchased within the past 4 years. I used them very much and they have been a great help, but I now have a new smartphone that has gps built into it that is actually better than the unit that was built for it. I also replaced my old Blackberry with this new smartphone. I decided to sell it on a popular classified website to see what I could get for them. I got $200 for the Blackberry which, after my rebate, was more than double what I paid for the new phone. I haven’t pulled the trigger on selling the old gps units yet, but I will.

Smart phones are the latest technology boom taking over the consumer market. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing a few ads for the latest smart phone. The demand for them is huge and it doesn’t look like this trend will be ending anytime soon. Especially when people waited in line for well over 6 hours to receive their new iPhone 4. Smart phones may be expensive, but the potential savings they could allow you to harness can easily make up for the cost. This latest technology boom has brought about app marketplaces where developers can write custom software to run on smart phones. I will be sharing the apps that I use on my iPhone, though many will have versions to run on different smart phones, that I use everyday to make my income go further.

apps

I recently upgraded my smart phone from a Blackberry to one of the Android phones. Not only is it a change for me in operating the phone, but there is a world of many, many more applications (both free and paid) that I knew about but never had access to. Although Blackberry does very well with their applications, they don’t scratch the surface when it comes to pure numbers of applications. The reason I bring this up is in the process of searching applications to download and discover, I found that there are also many applications related to budgeting. There are applications that cover everything from daily budgeting, expense management, and saving, to budgeting for a vacation. I received 67 results from my simple search for “budget”. There is even one that helps you budget with virtual envelopes as I discussed in a previous post. Pretty cool.
