I've always been pretty frugal and have become a professional bargain hunter since being let go from my job about a year ago. I'm a lot more cost conscious now. Unemployment keeps me going back to Wal-Mart instead of Lord & Taylor. And I'll have to find a job soon, very soon.
Still, I will be eligible for an upgrade with Verizon and I'm considering the iPhone. I'm optimistic -- I'm seeing more job leads. And maybe if I look like I know what I'm doing, I'll get a job.
