Since that day, I've never gone back. Apple computers have my heart. I'm kind of a tech lover so if you're not one of those people then you probably think I'm weird and want to stop reading. That's ok.
So what does this have to do with 'living with less' you ask? Since I purchased my brand new iBook in 2004, I've never purchased another new one. I've had five Apple computers since then and I've purchased them all used. Mostly from craigslist. And it's only backfired on me once.
Not everyone is a fan of buying used computers and I totally understand that. It's a risk. Especially when you're buying from a stranger. But for me, buying a brand new Mac just isn't an option. So i choose to buy used because that's what we can afford.
Sometimes when you're choosing to 'live with less' there are just some things you can't buy new. Cars, computers, clothes, the list goes on.
Is there anything you've chosen NOT to purchase new?
