Confessions of a Smart Mom: Refusing to Buy New Cellphone

I confess. I own a six year old cellphone. I have not updated and bought a new iPhone, dolling out tons of money for a phone that is like everyone else's. I can't say I'm a snob, or that I am an electronics snob. I just do not want to pay what can be a lot of money to buy something that will need to be updated in another year. I do not want to buy yet another new phone, that I have to figure out how to use. We tried to buy a new phone  last year, and the salespeople did not have a clue as to what we were talking about. My hubby said, "The deals shown in ads on TV and in magazines? Come on you have to know what I'm talking about." I felt like I was at a new car dealership and they were trying o sell me the extended warranty.

Confessions of a Mom who is keeping her old cellphone:

1. Costs too much money to buy a new phone. Felt like I was getting dental surgery when I went to the Verizon store to just look at new phones.
2. The monthly costs are too high. My hubby and I have been asking  friends questions discovering that many families of four are paying between 200 to 300 dollars for their monthly cellphone plans. In other words they are paying that much money for the Internet.
3. The Internet should be free, not a we have to pay more money for another service. Why should we pay for what they get for free in other countries? Sure who really wants to live in Denmark, but isn't it time we deserve to get something for free instead of paying some billion dollar business like Verizon or Sprint more money?
4. I'm comfortable with my small cellphone.  I love how small it is, how it has sand and cookie crumbs in it's small keyboard.
5. I'm not paying tons of money every month for the Internet.
6. My cellphone is small enough to fit in my pocket---even a small side or back pocket.
7. I don't care if my cellphone is big, has a huge case, is super easy to use and has a large screen, and can take pictures easily  can't upload those pics onto any social media.
8. I don't need a status symbol of wealth. Nor do I need to show off my BIG cellphone to everyone that is the size of a shoe.
9. I don't want a cellphone that has 100 apps on it, supposedly making my life easier.
10. If I get a new expensive cellphone with an expensive monthly plan, then I'm going to have to get my teen a new expensive cellphone. UGH!

So no thanks, that shiny , new cellphone that has all the latest updates like showing the time in a bigger screen---mine has a one inch display screen, will have to wait. I don't need a new cellphone that is personalized by showing the current temperature, the date, has  numerous pics stored in it. I may even go totally retro and  buy a cellphone with an antenna that does not allow texting. Copyright (c) 2015!

Add This Meal to My Tab: Why I started!

I started telling a story on January 1 of 2014 about the beginning of my new life. I decided to take control of my life, and not allow anyone else to control my life. Well, really I am doing as much as I can with the limited time and resources I have. Basically I stopped writing for places called content mills that want people to write as many posts, articles as possible. It's too time consuming for me to do this anymore, and it was hardly any money. 

It's a sad state of affairs when people the world over get paid hardly anything, and 'publishers' take advantage of people telling them that we all can work for free, but they put in such a nice way. "Oh we can't pay you, but you will get the writing credit to add to your resume."
From now on , I'll just tell the utility companies, that they can add my account to their resume.
How's long do you think that would last? "Oh by the way, Waitress, here's my card, add that to your resume."

That's why I decided to really work for myself; to take hold of the reins and do what I should have done years ago. I started my freelance writing business. I decided not to work for free, or next to free anymore. I decided to do what I always wanted to do---write.

Currently, I have 5 blogs, one of which you are reading right now, and two websites: one is Moms are more than just their kids. It's a place for moms to go to relax, destress, enjoy life, read book reviews, movie and TV reviews, and have some much needed mom time!
