One of my goals for 2015 is to rediscover my style.  I remember in college when I had a closet full of strappy sundresses, a variety of cute sandals, and pretty sparkly jewelry with which to accessorize.  Now my wardrobe mostly consists of jeans and t-shirts with the requisite pair of yoga pants tossed in, paired with flip flops.

While I may not spend quite as many minutes (hours) on the phone now as I did then, I do rack up my share of minutes each month.  With my parents living in Maine, not only do I like to check in on them regularly, they also like to talk to Bubbles on the phone quite often, also.  I had always felt like we had a fairly decent cell phone plan – until last summer, that is.  We finally took the plunge and upgraded to smartphones with data plans.  I knew our bill would increase but I didn’t realize by just how much.
