Reader Toddie's Favorite Frugal Gadget Finds

OnSugar Blog: A Few of My Favorite Things

This post comes from OnSugar blog The Frugal Geek, where reader Toddie blogs about indulging her gadget obsession without breaking the bank:

So what do I currently own that I have been willing to spend my hard-earned dollars on?


Granted, this isn't exactly what one would call a "budget" item. But it has been worth every penny. When my prior phone contract ended, I was spending close to $50 a month for a phone that had no data plan, and whose only bells and whistles were a pretty nice calendar and contacts list. So yeah, I'm willing to spend $30 more a month for a phone that has become nigh indispensable to my daily life. Watch for a post soon on my favorite iPhone apps.

Flip Video Ultra

I found a refurbished Flip Ultra for $70. Consider the following. The video camera we owned prior to the Flip (and which my husband still prefers, frankly) gets dragged out on rare occasion — the recitals, school programs, etc. Once I got the Flip, however, it's so portable that I use it to tape pretty much all the time. The kids riding bikes out in the alley? Check. Opening presents Christmas morning? Check. I love that you can send video postcards through the Flip website; it added an easy and fun way to send out Christmas thank-you notes.

I think the iPad is going to be great for travel; it may very well replace gadgets like the portable DVD player.

My macbook and my iphone are in heavy rotation as of this time. Once I get my hands on an ipad, I am sure that will be the newest favorite on the block.
