Saving Money, Tip #2:
Most of us have cell phones and/or house phones. A good way to save money is to assess if we need both or if we would be better off with just one. While watching Oprah a couple of weeks back the mother from the family voted "Most Thrifty Family in America" was there and she was saying that she only uses her cell phone for emergencies so she has a plan for $5 a month! I searched for this plan and found one other person who said he had a similar emergency plan and it was through Virgin Mobile. I investigated Virgin Mobile and the plan must be an older plan that is no longer available. So I have found the below test. You answer a few questions and it will show you the cheapest cell phone plans out there for your needs. Then you can determine if you are paying to much for your current plan or if you are getting a good deal. You can also take this test to determine how much you would be paying if you needed more minutes so you could get rid of a house phone. Either way you will save money, because "knowing is half the battle". :)
