Frugal deeds for the day: We checked out pay-as-you-go data/text/calling plans at Wal-mart. My husband and daughter's 2 year plan is now over. My husband told me the monthly bill was $139 per month. So, they need to go to T-mobile and get a sim card - the Rep. at Wal-mart said it should cost around $15 each. Then, my daughter will get the $30 per month plan - unlimited text/data and 100 calling minutes and my husband will get the $50 per month plan - unlimited text/data/calling. I will wait until I have used up my 1,000 pre-paid minutes. Then I will buy the phone - $39.99 and buy the $30 per month plan. Still a bit of savings over what we were paying. Oh, and Starwood Hotel stock earned a nice dividend this year. I also called the payroll department and I am cancelling $30 worth of optional bi-weekly deductions from my check. So, still paring down costs as I can.
