Do you have a child who is going back to school this year? Are you going back to school this year? Are you looking to save some money but not skimp on technology in a phone and plan? Well, let’s talk cheap wireless plans

In September I’ll be heading back to school. Yup, you heard that right! I’ll be attending college online to finish up my bachelors degree (I’m so close!) and I can’t wait to jump back into my studies. As a mom it’s easy to put ourselves last, which is what I do when it comes to my family. It seems like there is always something popping up that acts like a roadblock to the goals I have set for myself. But as Wyatt heads off to school in the fall, I’ll have a few hours per day to be able to really focus on school work. Levi will be hanging out with William so there will be no distractions, I can’t wait to finally get that degree! It’s been SO many years in the making!

Anywhoo, I’m totally rambling – let me show you my awesome (and inexpensive) phone that will help keep me on track! Levi and I picked it up at Walmart the other day:

It’s called the Alcatel One Touch Evolve (Reg $79.88 on rollback for just $29.88 at Walmart!). I mean, $30 for a smart phone – you just can’t beat it! Plus the plan is only $34.88/mo for Unlimited Talk Text & Web which means I can search on the internet, text William throughout the day, call my professor if needed, and so much more!




It’s a great little phone and it’s got a ton of built-in features to help me plan out the semester. If you didn’t know, I’m a total planner. I plan everything now – I mean, you just have to with kids and busy schedules! If I didn’t write everything down I would forget a lot. It’s just really easy to get distracted when you’ve got cute little ones around! 

Here’s a little image with some of my must-haves:

So, let’s talk.

Are you/your child going back to school?

Could you use this phone?
