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

Slim Down September

I recently joined Gold's Gym since Boot Camp was neither frugal nor cheap.  Gold's Gym is only about $30/month and there are so many around Austin.  I started taking Zumba classes and I am in LOVE.  My roommate and I are addicted and it's actually a healthy addiction.  It takes me back to high school when I was on my dance team and just had fun dancing.  Zumba is an awesome fusion of hip hop, latin, reggaeton, and jazz dancing in a one hour "exercise in disguise" class.

Would you try it?

Sober Saving Slim-down September

Anyone remember "No-Spend Saveuary"?  Well, this month it's going to be similar but a triple threat!  My good friend D told me she's going on this reverse binge called "Sober Saving Slim-down September."  I think it's an awesome idea!  Basically, no alcohol-drinking (or as little as possible), no extraneous spending outside of pre-made budget (already taken care of in my handy dandy account), as well as working out and eating right to slim down.  Not to mention sober and slimming down go hand in hand--alcohol has so many useless calories it's not even funny.

Things I must drink/spend money at:

  • Wild Frontier Fest (Sept 10th)
  • BuildASign Talent & Art Show (Sept 11th)
  • Austin City Limits Festival (Sept 17th)
  • Elaine Greer's show at the Mohawk (Sept 22nd)
Outside of those events, I'm going to do my best to bring my lunch, drink water, and work out like crazy.
