Wireless Service Made Simple with Total Wireless

wireless-service-made-simple

Disclosure: I am a member of the Total Wireless Team and have been compensated for my time. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Have you ever tried to compare mobile phones and services? It is so confusing with contracts and different amount of data talk and text for every provider and the prices are all over the map. It seriously makes my head hurt when trying to compare the options.

I wanted something simple for my new teenager so we recently purchased a phone and monthly service from Total Wireless. With Total Wireless, you get everything you need and nothing you don’t on America’s largest and most reliable network. No contracts. No credit checks. Total Wireless is making wireless services simple again with plans that give you everything you need and nothing you don’t.

You have three options for adding a phone to a Total Wireless plan.

  1. Visit Total Wireless online and purchase the phone and have it shipped right to your home
  2. Visit your local Walmart store and purchase phone and service.
  3. Bring your compatible phone to Total Wireless for a no-worry 30-day plan. You can check here if your current phone is compatible.

My daughter and I visited Walmart where we could see and touch all the phones and decide which one was right for her. They had a great display with all the phones and the details on the plans.

For $35 per month, Total Wireless gives you unlimited Talk and Text and 2.5 GB of data on America’s largest and most reliable network. And, for just $10 you can purchase 1.5 GB of shared Carryover™ Add-On data – unused data does not expire with active
service.

For families that have additional needs for devices, lines and data, Total Wireless is one of the first prepaid, no contract shared family data plans in the market. Get two-line plans with 5.0 GB of shared data across devices for $60/month, it’s ideal for couples and families.

Once you get your phone it is very simple to set up online or via phone. We set ours up online and were even able to transfer a previous phone number to the new phone.

I love that my teen fully understands exactly how much the phone and service costs. She is responsible for certain jobs around the house and for schoolwork in order to keep the privilege of the phone. It is great that we are not locked into a contract and have the option of suspending service one month if need be. She is very responsible so I doubt we will need to use this, but it is great to know it is available.

Here she is enjoying her new phone already. So glad it has unlimited talk and text since she is a teenager!

It is perfect for dried out summer skin!

 At the end of a busy summer day no one wants to spend a ton of time applying lotion but this easy to use spray is fast to apply and quick to dry. It is so easy that my kids love to use it.

Pottery Barn Bedroom Design For Less

Pottery Barn Bedroom Design Style for Less

I absolutely love every room in the Pottery Barn catalog. However, it doesn’t always fit in my budget to purchase a whole room and accessories from Pottery Barn. I decided to check out if I could find this Pottery Barn Bedroom design for less. The pieces I chose give you the Pottery Barn design style at a cheaper price point. You could easily buy some pieces from Pottery Barn and then others from another retailers and still get a similar feel for the room. Obviously there probably will be quality differences and you can decide on each piece if it is worth getting the original or getting another piece with a similar style. [Read more…]
