My husband Jason is always purchasing new gadgets.
- And every time he buys something new, I ask him the reason behind his madness.
I don’t believe that we need a gadget for everything. His justification is these gadgets will make life simpler. Don’t get me wrong, some of his “toys” as I call them do help a lot. For instance, I do love the robot vacuum because it can easily get to places that I would have a hard time vacuuming myself. So, that purchase was needed for that simple reason. Another purchase that he made that I doubted was the smart thermostat. We had been using a regular thermostat for so long that I didn’t see the need for an upgrade to a smart version. However, once I realized how beneficial the thermostat was, I was sold. In fact, it might just be my favorite gadget in our home. Not only does the thermostat regulate the indoor temperature, but it also monitors outdoor temperature and adjusts accordingly. Moreover, the thermostat can be accessed remotely from my phone as long as I am connected to Wi-Fi. It learns our behaviors and adjusts itself based on them. Additionally, it’s easy to use and it can also be used to schedule yearly maintenance. But best of all, the thermostat has saved us money on our energy bill. Once I saw the monthly savings, I realized that in no time the thermostat would pay for itself. I am not going to like all the gadgets that my husband will buy, but if he purchases more “toys” that will save us money then I will have no issues with them.
