I accidentally checked the boxing day price on the 6TB My Cloud and My Book once again at Best Buy and they were $299.99 and $249.99 respectively. Of course as I was browsing, they ended up in the cart and after updating my outdated mastercard info, I accidentally clicked on checkout… and the next thing I knew… I had a confirmation email that they would be arriving December 29th; all without having me to rush over to BestBuy on boxing day at 6AM to wait in line.
After owning three Clouds it was starting to get annoying that my data was scattered across 3 clouds, so with a firm decisive click, I decided to consolidate all my data and sell all my 4tb clouds which would probably recover the cost. Simplification was the reason that I bought the 4tb cloud two years ago; two bookshelf units that sips power at 5Watts when sleeping. No more wishy washy decisions of should I or shouldn’t I?
Since I spent $600, I thought I would go for the kill. I ended up checking up on the price of the MacBook 12" retina which I had been needing for a year now and I had to create a new cart for that one since I would be saving a whopping $50 and that is also arriving on December 29th.
I spent the wholeChristmas Eve night playing on my new yamaha DGX 650 Portable Grand which was also a desperately needed item when I accidentally wandered out to Tom Lee Music shop and the guy wrote my name on the box; he also said for today only I got a free piano bench worth $125; he saw me coming when I parked my car.
This is the problem of being a bachelor with a credit card on Christmas Eve
I remember doing this when I was married; I ended up sleeping on the couch for a for a couple of weeks.
Have a Merry Buying holidays everyone…
