Vaping on a budget
I know most of you are like me. We love vaping and part of what we love so much is to tinker with new toys. VV, VW, twists, mods, and even new juice. I have this box where I keep all my goodies neatly stacked and organized. Organized! Wow that’s a new experience for me! Between working full time and going to college full time there usually is no such thing as organized! I find myself cleaning and tinkering and relabeling and just messing with that box all the time. Now you know there is absolutely nothing like the feeling of vape mail. Oooo it’s like Santa sent a present without Christmas! And that box? Well you want to put more in it right? Of course! I watch the review videos and think, Oh I gotta try that! Then I look in my money and think well maybe not right now. Lately I find myself doing more of the “well not right now” than the “Yeah baby that’s mine!” so I had to figure out how to vape on a budget.
Vaping on a budget isn’t so hard really. I found a few ways to help. First, those juices you are holding on to. You know, the ones that you just aren’t so crazy about? Sell them! Or trade them for other juice! There are plenty of places out there for just that. Somehow a few months back I ended up with 3 (yes 3) bottles of juice that I swear tasted like burnt tire in the hot sun. Yet there were loads of people who loved it. I traded those bad boys away quick!
Now remember the days of smoking? Was there ever a day when you couldn’t get that killer due to money? Yeah I had a few but not many. I made sure to have exactly that much money out of each paycheck to run down to the store and buy a pack of killers. Every single day. Vaping is just as important! So take that amount that you would normally have used and stash it away. It doesn’t have to be every day. Maybe just a few times a week. That stash will grow quick! Wow you have money for juice or a new device! Go you!!
Next, those cartos and clearos. Clean them! Religiously. Yeah they don’t cost much but every dime counts and they will last much longer with cleaning. (Please make sure you have a type that can be cleaned or that you find out how to clean the one you have specifically). When I bought my first clearo I had no idea I could replace the atomizer. (Still a bit newbie I am) I cleaned that thing forever! And it lasted me months. You’ll know when to replace it. The taste won’t be near as good as it once was. I haven’t quite gotten to the comfort level yet of building my own (anyone want to mentor?) so I won’t get into that.
Lastly, PAY ATTENTION! There are sales. There are reviews. Watch them. Read them. There is nothing worse than to spend that hard earned money on something that doesn’t work. A good device should last. A good company will back their product. Just recently I read about an experience that was wonderful due to customer service with a company. That is what you are looking for! Yes some of those great companies may charge a bit more but if your device or juice is right or working correctly and lasts then the extra dollar makes up for the bunch of dollars that you would spend on replacing it. And those kits? Do your math! Some of those kits are definitely worth it while others ehh not so much. If you are purchasing a device that comes with a tank and a charger and a bottle of juice, breakdown those prices. Make sure they aren’t charging more for the convenience of one package. Ask around to see if someone has the same items cheaper or of better quality.
This is all time consuming yes. Sometimes there is too much going on in your day to even watch a review or log into your computer. There are times your box may look a bit empty. In the end, when that long awaited vape mail comes, it will all be worth it. What are your ideas?
