Financial decision involving cell phone

Thread Details


Right now I have a phone that works ok but really wanted a newer one do I ordered one that was $450. I do have the cash saved up to pay for it. Today we got word my wife may lose her job and we would potentially lose a big chunk of income.

Question is should I cancel the new phone and deal with what I have until I know what's going on or get it and move on?

I know this may seem like silly question but my head is spinning and I need some advice.

I could also get a phone that's less money as well.

It depends - do you have enough $ saved up to not worry about it while your wife searches for a new job (assuming she will be doing so)?

Yeah, we do have an emergency fund saved up to get us through about 6-8 months.

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

Cancel it, you never know if you'll need that money. Once she has a job lined up go ahead and treat yourself.
