Switch Your Cell Phone Plans
Like many, I love my smartphone. I use it throughout the day. It’s a convenience that I don’t want to give.
With many of the major carriers, though, cellphone bills can easily eat up a family’s budget.
The good news is that there are some wonderful options out there for you to slash your bill while still keeping a great smartphone plan.
Republic Wireless: My personal favorite, I use them for my personal and work phone. Yep, I have two lines with them and guess how much it costs – $35 or less each month. The reason? Republic offer refunds on the data you don’t use. Check out Republic Wireless here.
Ting: Build a cell plan based on how you actually use it. My friend slash her bill by switching over. Check with them to see if you can bring over your phone, saving you even more money. Check them out here.
GoogleFi: Another cell/wifi option that can give you cheap service. Users in the US pay $20/ month for unlimited calls and texts with $10 more for each GB of data. Check them out here.
Pre-Paid: If you want to keep your phone for now and stay a big network, pre-paid options like StraightTalk or BoostMobile may be the way to go.
Yay for technology!
Price Hunt for Your Insurance
We were able to significantly cut our auto insurance premiums by switching providers.
By using our Costco membership our car insurance premiums went from $118/month to $58/month.
Since we have Executive membership at Costco, we also get free towing and jump starts included so we allowed our AAA to lapse and saved a bit more.
As you can see, we were about to save hundreds of dollars each year by looking at our car insurance options.
If you’re pressed for time, but still want to shop around for the best rates on car insurance, here’s a list of the biggest auto insurance companies out there now:
