Money Saver: Cell Phone Plan Change

My text to Husband today: 10 weeks!  Call tmobile and get rid of internet. Think of others ways to save $. Brain storm babe! We're going to have a money sucker in 10 weeks!

The money sucker I am referring to is the sweet little baby girl that has been kicking me a lot lately in my belly.  I am 30 weeks pregnant today. I know she still has a lot of growing to do, but I cannot wait to meet her!  Plus, she is sucking the life out of me - washing dishes wore me out this morning. While I want to clean and purge more, I have a feeling it may not get all done.  I am learning to be okay with this.

Husband called the cell phone people, and we are now saving $67 a month!  He ended up getting a new phone, and after that's paid off, we'll save even more.  Woo hoo!

I'll learn to be okay with no internet on my phone in time.

I'm doing it: National Day of Unplugging

I made the commitment for The National Day of Unplugging. Tonight no phone, TV, internet for 24 hours. I will start after I clock out of work because I don't know when sundown is (nor do I want to have to keep looking at the clock to find out etc), so  at 8 pm I'll turn my phone off. I am still debating whether or not listening to Pandora radio or  reading a book on KindleFire counts.  I am going to do my best w/o both.

  • I will miss talking to my husband while I am at work tomorrow. And I always call while taking the dogs out in the morning.
  • I wrote down the recipe for dinner tonight so I don't have to go online to look at it.
  • I have to find my watch so I don't need my phone as a watch at work.
  • I am super sad that I have to spend my day of unplugging at work.  What a waste of peace and calmness ha ha.
  • I hope I know others who do this so I'll someone to share experiences with.
  • While I have no desire of going off the grid forever, I hope this makes me more aware of how I spend my time etc. and hopefully the start of good habits.
  • My husband's response when I told him today: "Does this mean I have to do it too?"  ha ha.  I love him.  (answer: "No, but I want be watching TV tonight.")

Somewhat Getting Back On the Wagon.

First off, thank you so much, Michelle, for asking about me.  I'd tag your blog to make sure everyone gets a read, however I can't remember how, and I am trying to get off the computer :).  I will update this post later and link your blog. Your comment made me smile.  I am doing well, just not been working on my goals as need be, and therefore not much to write about.

I have not been doing well with my goals, not even No TV Mondays!  I do intend to get back to that this Monday (We had to see who "A" was on Pretty Little Liars in hopes I never have to watch the show again... but I still might.  I going to look into getting the books instead.)

I am considering this: National Day of Unplugging.  Consider joining me?

Updates to come!

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Found This Today

I am going to work on cleaning the bathroom and bedroom today as we are supposed to "move" this weekend.  (Moving = switching rooms with my dad as there is no space for a baby in our room.  Thanks, Dad!)  I hope this is a blessing to my husband when he gets home.

Off the Wagon

I have not been doing much good in any department of goals lately.  Hopefully today will be a better day, and I will have something new to post soon.
