I’m sure for those of you keeping up with the blog you’ve noticed that we haven’t posted anything in the past few weeks.  There’s really nothing new going on, however we figured out another way to save some money.  So, we thought we’d share it with you!

We’ve had a shared family plan with Verizon Wireless for a bit over 3 years now.  For 2 people who talk to very few people & never text we decided it was time to make a change.  Just to give you guys an idea of how little we use our phones: I talk to my parents once a week for about 1.5 hours & some phone calls here & there to Lisa (our best buddy) & Corey talks to his parents, his tile boss & sometimes his brother.  For whatever reason, we believe shadiness, our contracts end at 2 different times: mine in January & his in March even though we joined our plans in September.  After doing some research we found that it makes the most sense to cancel each of our contracts on the day they expire & switch to a non-contract plan.  The best one we’ve found so far is Virgin Mobile @ $25/month for 300 talking minutes + unlimited texting, internet, etc.  So, we’ll go from $90/month down to $50/month & unless someone knows of a better deal I think this is the one we’re gonna go with.  Do any of you have Virgin Mobile?  If so, do you like it or do you have a better suggestion?  We’d love to hear what you guys think!

As we’ve stated in an earlier post we will be cutting out Direct TV once basketball season is over & we might start looking for a cheaper internet provider, too.  That’s all for now. . . hope everyone’s having a splendid weekend!
