My laptop sadly died on me. For the first couple years I worked at home, I just used my laptop. Using it for that and other stuff didn't help it at all. I got my desktop about a year ago, but last thing I want to do after work is sit at that computer in my office.
I've been saving up for a couple of months now, and getting pretty close to having enough in gift cards. But then Amazon announced Prime Day, claiming it would be bigger than Black Friday. I already had Prime, so I had hoped to score a laptop.
Prime Day was pretty much a joke. I attempted to get a laptop, but it sold out in a second. The only thing I did get was a Ninjago Zane clock for Emily.
But I did decide that I was sick of waiting to get enough gift cards and asked Todd to find me a decent computer. He did find me one and it will arrive tomorrow. Most of that cost was covered by the gift cards.
From social media yesterday, looks like a lot of people are unhappy with Amazon. I still love Amazon because I wasn't honestly thinking I'd get a great deal on Prime Day. It was kind of like Black Friday - you go to the store and all the good stuff is gone!
For me, it was a good day. Emily is getting a cool clock, I'm getting a laptop and even Todd is getting something, a video game!
