Simplicity Saturdays (LINK UP) #6


Hope you all are wonderful today!!!

As we are travelling along on our adventure of simplicity, there are so many things in our lives that we want to simplify.  And you FREEDOM!  Freedom to make decisions that you feel God wants in your life......and right now our hands are bound.

Proverbs 22:7

"The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender"

As we have not used any debt in three years, we are still paying for past "stupid tax".  We have not been as intense along the way as we should have been.  This year we are adding a gazelle intensity that is sure to make a difference.

This week we cancelled ATT cell phones, we had been with them for 11 years and were paying $180/month for three phones. One was a friend. We explained to our friend that it was time to say goodbye to this plan.  We paid the cancellation fee...which will pay for itself in 3 months and totally simplified.  I no longer have a cell phone. Only hubby which is our business phone as well.  We are taking advantage of the $30 straight talk plan/no contract!  

And at home we are using the magic jack.  One of my friends and my parents use this and are happy with it.  Using the $30 straight talk and magic jack together will meet our needs and save us $150/month.  That is $150 we can put back into the rest of our debt.  I really hope to be saying good bye to it this year!!!

And as we hadn't had a home phone in AGES.... :) we got a basic V-Tech phone.

I realize the magic jack is not the answer for everyone, if you don't have fast internet i.e. broadband, high-speed, cable internet, dsl, or wireless you can't use the magic jack.  But for now and this time in our life it can save us some serious cash!!! :)

Can't wait to hear about your Simplicity Saturday!!!!  Please be sure to LINK BACK HERE!!!! :)  I have a button on the right to make that easy. Blessings to you all!!!
