I love to talk about on how we can save. In this day and age, it's wiser to be more practical on our decisions, especially if you have a growing family like I do. Having a baby does not come cheap, and since my husband and I are both new at this without having any increase with our source of income or whatsoever, we're reviewing our all our expenses to see where we can cut down.
We are now taking our time to do a little research before actually buying an item or service. And believe me, it works! Our phone bill is a great example. My husband and I are paying almost 300 USD for the usage of our cellphones and internet at home. We sought these services from one provider who was billing us separately for each thing only to find out that other networks offers the same thing for a cheaper price because it's bundled. We should've been saving months ago if we weren't caught with other company's Hook, line and sinker.
Another option to save on cellphones is to consider getting the pre-paid plans. This service does not have any contracts, credit check, activation, and termination fees. Straight talk is one of the leading service providers who offers great deals for this as well. Their unlimited text, call, and web can be as low as 45 USD per month. Other services such as calling 411 and international numbers are available to. I was paying 80 USD (tax excluded) to my previous provider so because of this shift, I was able to have more budget on baby stuffs now compared to before.
Aside from this, Straight talk is also affiliated with well known cellphone brands such as Nokia, Motorola,Samsung, and etc. You can get a unit starting at 10 USD, or go bold with Android on Straight Talk and have an Android phone for a low price as well.
Now you can Call a friend or a loved one without ever having to worry about how much more minutes you have left.
