Technology has changed my family and my life for the better 99% of the time. There are things I learn and used to help me with things like fixing electronics, getting educated at home, learning which apps work for us, and keeping our debt in check.
Learning How to Fix Electronics on the Fly
How technology has changed my life is for the better even with all the breakdowns, upgrades, and outages that go along with it. Not only am I a freelance worker who does more than just write, I have learned also how to troubleshoot the problems on my end before spending precious time on the phone with tech support. More often than not these days, I can fix the problem without additional help and money or a lot of money to correct an issue.
Getting an Education at Home
Working from home is just one of the reasons how technology has changed my life. Another way technology has helped my life is using the internet to educate myself on various topics while researching my work these days.
Also, my daughter was able to take a few of her college courses online. Even with the extra fee of $45 or so at the time, it was cheaper than driving to Wichita State University two to three times a week for a semester. Which saved me more money in the long run.
Apps, Apps, and More Apps
When I first started hearing about apps for smartphones, tablets, computers, and the latest flat screen TVS, I never thought I would be one of those people who used them. We have a few of those installed and have been able to eliminate the need for cable. While some of them do cost us each month, we have found we enjoy those apps far more than cable.
Paying Bills Online
My husband has become a huge fan of paying bills online. For him, this technology has been life changing for him. It helps us keep out bills more current and not having to worry about the payment getting lost in the mail. That has happened more than once to us.
