Home Phone - A Great Way to Save Some Money!!

Hi, everyone! I hope you're all doing well. Things here are good, just busy as usual! It's hard to believe another school year is almost over. I'm so looking forward to summer break.

I wanted to take a few minutes and share a terrific money-saving idea with you all! I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to 'money-saving ideas'. They're usually too good to be true, or take up more of my time than they're worth. This, however, is the real deal!

So, my husband and I were sick and tired of paying $70+ a month for home phone service. We saw the commercial on TV for the StraightTalk home phone and decided to give it a try. We've had it a couple of months now, and it's doing great! The call quality is very good, and the best part is it's only $15 a month, and that's with unlimited nationwide calling! That's an easy $60 savings for us every month! The device you have to buy is about $100, but that will pay for itself very quickly. You can use the phones you already have, keep your same phone number, plus it has voice mail, call-waiting, and 911 service. We set up the auto-refill, so the money is deducted from our checking account every month. My awesome, technically talented husband did all the installation and activation stuff, so I can't really tell you how to set it up, but this is the website if you're interested in finding out more about it.

I've also seen some good reviews of it on YouTube.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Take care,


  1. Thanks for the information!!!

  2. how would you do it if your internet is through phone line?

  3. Hi, Melanie! So glad things are good at your house! I can't believe it is the end of the year already either. We are looking forward to summer break. I hope you have a great ending to your school year.

    I am going to share the straight talk phone idea with Quentin.
