The technology that has gone into smartphones over the last few years really can make your head spin a little.  They do everything!  In one device you can talk, text, watch movies, stream music, play games, surf the web, create videos, take pictures – even use it as a remote control.

$50 will get you unlimited talk, text, and web PLUS free music streaming without using data. Get this T-Mobile plan - plus the Nokia Lumia 530 - now at Walmart #TMobileWM

Much of that takes data, though, and as anyone who has paid a cellphone bill knows – data can get expensive.  That’s why in this post sponsored by Lunchbox (all opinions are my own) you’ll be excited to learn that there is an awesome T-Mobile plan available from Walmart.  It has unlimited talk, text and web plus free music streaming that doesn’t use your data all that for just $50 a month.

Last weekend was a time that our family had been highly anticipating for a long time.  We got up early Saturday morning, packed up the car, and drove the roughly two hour drive to Bowling Green for Ashley’s college graduation.

By the time we met up with everyone else and seated ourselves, we made up quite the cheering section.  Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and friends.  We totaled roughly a dozen, and that wasn’t counting Austin who had unfortunately been scheduled to work that day and couldn’t find anyone to trade shifts.

When I was growing up if you would have told me that some day I would not have a landline phone, I wouldn’t have believed you.  Even though I was an extremely early-adopter of cell phone technology – I’ve had a cellphone for nearly 20 years – I never thought they would replace landlines.  And yet as cellular service has improved in quality and portability, I and many others have switched to using them exclusively.

While there are definite benefits to cutting the line and going cell-only, cost is not one of them.  Especially with the addition of texting and data plans, the monthly cost for cell phones can be a significant portion of your budget.  I’m always on the lookout for ways to keep that bill from getting out of control and recently I heard about a new one called Zact.

A few weeks ago I shared with you all that we were headed to Maine to visit my family.  We hadn’t been up in awhile and we wanted to be there to celebrate with my Grandmother for her 85th birthday.  I’m really glad we had the opportunity, as we had the chance to visit with a lot of family at my Gram’s surprise party that I hadn’t seen in years.

Vacations in general can be expensive, but it has always seemed to me that trying to get to rural Maine is one of the most expensive places to which you can travel.  While I was in college I remember trying to get a last-minute flight home for a surprise visit and the tickets were over a thousand dollars.  Fortunately it wasn’t quite that expensive this time with a little advanced planning.
