With a family of 5, being smart about our budget and saving money is just what we do. We have to be smart for many reasons. First, we have 5 people to feed, clothe, house and take care of. Secondly, my first baby is just one year away from going to college Even before we worry about paying for college, we have all the expenses of her senior year of high school, paying for multiple standardized tests and multiple college application fees. Then we have those same expenses for our nest two children. And I could go on and on about the expenses that all families face. But you know having a family is expensive, so saving money whenever you can is just plain smart.
But with an active family of 5 (yes I’m embarrassed to say that sometimes we eat in the car between activities), having quality cell phones and cell phone service is also key. Keeping track of everyone and everyone’s different schedules would be incredibly difficult without our cell phones. But as important as our cell phones are, I don’t want to spend more than I have to on them. I don’t just want a smart phone, I want to be smart about our cell phones.
If you agree with me that it’s crazy to spend more on your cell phone than you do on your groceries or health insurance (which the average American does), then let me tell you about Republic Wireless.
With Republic Wireless you pay $19 a month for an unlimited data, talk and text plan. You get unlimited talking, texting and surfing without being stuck in a contract (yea!, no contract) and without limits or overages. So Republic Wireless is only $19 per month when the average American is paying $100 a month. That means that I could have 5 cell phones (one for each member of my family) with Republic Wireless for the cost most people pay for 1 cell phone each month! Now that sounds smart.
And you don’t get stuck with a Miami Vice type of cell phone (you know those phones that were as big as shoe box). You get a Motorola DEFY XT Android Smartphone with Sprint 3G coverage. My kids would be happy with this phone since it has a webcam, a rear-facing camera with auto focus, LED flash and 4X zoom and more than 450,000 apps available through Google Play. I’d be happy for the kids to use this phone because it’s a phone that will hold up to kid-use with a 3.7 inch Corning Gorilla glass display and is dust proof (that sounds amazingly smart) and water and scratch resistant. Now that’s a smart first smartphone for a child or for an adult just getting started with a smartphone.
Republic Wireless gives a family a smart choice in a cell phone with the Motorola DEFY XT and a smart choice in service with no restrictive contract and it only costs $19 a month for unlimited texting, talking and data. Smart and smart. I like that.
To learn more about Republic Wireless take a minute and watch this amusing video (really, it totally appeals to my corny sense of humor). I’d say it’s smartly funny and informative.
