    The most expensive thing I ever bought

    iHeart My iPhone

    You might be surprised how could iPhone 4s be the most expensive thing that I ever bought. Honestly speaking, it is the most expensive thing that I ever purchased and it is the only device that I ever owned from Apple.
    I bought my iPhone 4s in 2012 after earning some additional income. The price of the phone back then was around 10% higher than my monthly basic salary. So, it never occurred to me that I would be able to get one for myself.
    My social networking life had changed significantly. It is like bringing my laptop wherever I go. Two years has passed, yet my iPhone 4s and I are still together. I have no regrets buying it at all. It has served me satisfactorily despite its few glitches. I have a problem with the battery now but my friend advised me that I can have it replaced. Obtaining new apple products or any other well-known brands is not included in my budget this year.

    I am a separated parent who’s trying to make ends meet, with no support from my ex-husband. I have two sons, one is a 1st college student and the other is a 1st year high school student. Therefore, my primary priority is my children’s needs. Nonetheless, when fortune comes by one day, I will definitely buy a new Apple device.

    I dedicate this ireport to my colleague, who died days before I bought this iPhone. He was such an inspiration until his last breath. I shared his story on this link :
