We it comes to saving money I try and look at the big picture. I have done everything from go through my bills to see what we are over paying to even seeing what things we can drop that we don't really need. A little more than a year ago we dropped satellite and we haven't looked back. Saving that money every single month is definitely worth it. Something else we did about a year and a half ago was get rid of cell phone contracts.
Have a landline phone just doesn't make sense for our family. Cell phones are how we manage to keep up with each other and our children even when traveling. So when we started looking for cell phones with no contracts we ended up choosing TracFone for our youngest daughter.
TracFone has no contracts, no credit checks, no activation charges or cancelation fees. The have great nationwide coverage and so many features. “Double minutes for the life of your phone” is a feature that can be purchased separately for only$19.99, but some phones include it! (Ours did) Choose from monthly plans with 200 minutes for under $30.00, and as low as $9.99 for 50 minutes. For more details check out what real TracFone customers.
If your find yourself looking at your cell phone bill each month asking "where did all these charges come from?", I can totally relate. This is exactly what was happening to us with our contract phone. Even though we supposedly had an "all inclusive" plan our bill would magically rise with each and every month. See what real TracFone customers have to say about a cell phone with no surprise bills.
So how do you feel about ditching the contract and saving money?
