Straight Talk--Feel Richer Every Month!

This post brought to you by Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.


Want to feel richer?  Cut your cell phone bill in HALF!  Talk about being frugal (and this time I’ll admit it’s cheap)!   Are you sick of spending $150+ on cell phone bills?  I find it pretty ridiculous that we’re expected to pay these exorbitant amounts of money on something that everyone uses.  $150/month for one year is $1800 a year.  That’s $9000 over the course of 5 years.  Imagine what you could buy with $9000! 

I love the idea that you can feel richer with Straight Talk because you cut your cell phone bill in half.  You have to be crazy to be on a contract when you can get everything you need without one. 

What’s Straight Talk?  It’s this cell phone company with NO contracts, no surprise bills and no credit checks.  It has great nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity.  Straight Talk only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia, and Samsung.

Monthly Plans:

-The “All You Need Plan” meets even the needs of heavy phone users with 1000 minutes 1000 texts and 30 MB of web data.

-Unlimited Monthly service is only $45 and includes calls, text, picture messaging, and web

PSST: Imagine unlimited calls, text, picture messaging and web for a whole year for only $499!  Way better than $1800 I have to say.

Straight Talk International Long Distance Service is a flexible prepaid calling service that enables you to make international calls from your home, cell or office phone at low rates.

Phone Selection:  Reconditioned phones are available from $10.00 with camera, mp3 player, mobile web access, and blue-tooth capability.  Great for young users!  Amazing smart phones, touch screen phones, and app capable phones with features like voice navigation, camera, video recorder, music player, instant messaging, and Bluetooth

Can't Wait to Try Out Zenni Optical!

This post brought to you by Zenni Optical. All opinions are 100% mine.


Myth: Buying optical glasses and frames will empty out your bank account.
Fact: There are some companies out there that sell glasses and frames at very reasonable prices.
A few weeks ago, I was considering purchasing some new optical lenses & frames from LensCrafters.  The glasses were pretty cute, but I had quite the sticker shock.  Most frames were around $200.  Then, the salesperson let me know that lenses are not included in the price, and can be as much as $300.  The glasses/lenses I wanted was going to be around $300 AFTER their "sale" of 30% off when you buy lenses & frames together.  I quickly walked out as I was not willing to dish out $300 on glasses when I didn't truly NEED them.
Today I made an awesome discovery: Zenni Optical.  This is a website that specializes in AFFORDABLE glasses frames.  I'm talking as low as $6.95 per pair!  I'm going to have to try this out soon, since I've had the same glasses since my freshman year of college, 5 years ago.  Can you believe how much money I'll be saving on glasses?  Hundreds!
I think this Time Magazine reader put it perfectly: "Please tell me editor Bill Saporito is receiving mental-health treatment, because he is insane for spending $1000 on a single pair of glasses.  I buy glasses from Zenni Optical, an online site.  It's $20 for a complete set at my doorstep, shipping included."

Wait...Shipping INCLUDED?  YES!  Okay, I have to try this now...
