iPod Classic

For a while now, I’ve wanted an iPod Classic.  I have a 2nd Generation Nano and it’s a great little device, but 4GB is just not enough.  Not only that, but I really wanted something I can just sync my whole library to (about 28GB of music/podcasts/audiobooks) and not have to pick and choose.

In the past, I would have just gone out and bought it, but since taking the Financial Peace class from Dave Ramsey, I’ve been trying to be more responsible.  After waiting for nearly a year, I decided to take the bull by the horns and put a bunch of stuff on eBay to make the money I needed.  Combined with some Christmas money, I was finally able to order it (thanks for selling it $25 cheaper, Amazon) on New Year’s Eve and I’ve been loving it ever since.

Not only is it a great device that works exactly as it should, sounds great, and holds all my music and even a bunch of episodic TV shows (Firefly, Arrested Development, and Futurama, right now), but it means even more that I wanted it for over a year–waited, saved and sold stuff to get it–and was finally able to order it.  I think that makes it an even more awesome device than it already is!

On a side note, I have been enjoying being an Amazon Prime subscriber.  For those that don’t know, Amazon Prime allows you to get free two-day shipping on anything fulfilled by Amazon.com and for $3.99 per item, you can get something overnight.  I got a 3-month trial when I ordered the iPod and I think I’m going to actually pay for the subscription ($79/year) when the trial runs out.  I’ve been ordering more “necessity” items which are not only cheaper than at stores, but also ship free thanks to Amazon Prime.
