#026: Save money and stay sane with Subscription Buddy

I grew up around the millennium. Back then CDs, tapes and Windows ME were omnipresent. If I wanted new music I had to drive to a shop and get it. If I wanted to build a website, I had the choice to either learn HTML or use Dreamweaver.
Today, everything is so much easier. SaaS products make our lives easier. Spotify gives me music on the go. WordPress … love it.
But it’s getting increasingly harder to keep track of all your subscriptions. Especially since trials are everywhere. The other day I figured I paid for a service I did not use because I forgot about the trial.

#002: Point of Sale hand sterilizer

Yesterday my kids and I went to a bakery. It was hot, they were hungry and grumpy. To take control of the situation I bought some fresh bread. I paid with cash while checking emails on my phone. Then I took the change and started distributing the bribe-bread.

It was after I paid that I realized I should have cleaned my hands before handing out something to eat for my kids (god, I hope my wife will not find this post). I fed my children with germs from the change (to be precise a lot of peoples’ germs) AND my phone (which has 10x more bacteria than a toilet seat, studies show).
