 For many of us, this time of year is super busy, and can be super stressful. It’s hard to slow down, and take note of all of the great things that can and do happen during this month. I’m glad that I have everything that I need at my fingertips with the Samsung Galaxy s4 phone that I purchased a while back from Walmart  and their Family Mobile plan

One thing that I have been doing a LOT of this season, is baking. When I say lots, I mean lots. One of the items in heavy rotation would be red velvet cupcakes and brownies. Even though I make them quite a bit, I still need to have the recipe on hand while I am in the kitchen. I hate printing out those recipes because it is inevitable that I will lose them, or get food on them, or worse yet, set them on fire (which I have not done yet, knock on wood.) My phone is great with a tablet/phone holder set up on the counter, where I can scroll the ingredients and directions, and keep moving. If I’m working from a blog post, I can see things at a moments notice rather than writing them down first just to bring them to the kitchen with me.

Since learning how to knit a few months back – or was it last month, who knows – I figured that I would knit several packs of dish cloths for my close friends and family. I’ve had the chance to knit some for myself and test them out, and I must say that I’ve loved using them since I’ve made them. They can conveniently be made while watching the video on my phone with headphones in so that I don’t disturb those around me. The screen of the phone is big enough where I can see every detail without straining.

Whether I’m making a list (and checking it twice – oh COME ON, you know you started singing it too) or watching videos, or getting inspiration from Pinterest, my Walmart Family Mobile phone assures that I will have all ideas, and inspiration at my fingertips with a strong signal and great coverage.  Being able to carry my shopping list around with me everywhere I go is essential to making sure that everything is done efficiently, and without having to carry paper lists with me as well. With having to only pay  $34.88/month for Unlimited Talk, Text, & Web ($29.88 for the second line) and coming with 5GB of 3G Data, this higher speed bucket allows me to do even more with my plan.

    This is a really nice phone! My husband needs a new phone. I didn’t know you could get the Galaxy S4 with Walmart Family Mobile. I’m going to check this out!

    Every year I always say I’ll do less during the holidays because it’s so.darn.busy! Luckily this year I took my own advice and did slow down but relied heavily on my phone to keep me organized and on track. #client

    I have started to rely on my Samsung Galaxy S4 while cooking as well! In fact, I used it while making Christmas Eve dinner last week! So great to not have to worry about data overages and doesn’t hurt to save on my phone plan either by using Walmart Family Mobile. I can put that money to better (and more fun) use elsewhere!

  4. Jen Lawrence says:

    I love that you are so crafty! You inspire me… I love that you can utilize your phone and make it work for exactly what you need. It’s great that Walmart Family Mobile offers great phones and service plans at an affordable price!

    I honestly don’t know what I’d do without my unlimited plan! I love how I never have to watch the GB add up and can just stream, surf, text and phone as much as a I want and not have to worry about the bill later 🙂 And I totally want some of your red velvet cupcakes 😉 !
