AT&T Lowers Monthly Cost For Unlimited Talk And Data.

If you are (or are considering to become) an AT&T customer, you might want to check out what they did to the price of their unlimited talk and data plans. While they made changes to their plans for all users, I was mostly interested in the rates on the iPhone, as that’s the phone I own. But after looking at the rate changes, they don’t really help me any because A. I don’t use that many voice minutes, B. I already have unlimited data with my $30 iPhone “extra” cost and C. texting costs are still separate from data and voice on their smartphones. So while I could now get unlimited voice for only a little more per month, I don’t need it…I NEVER go over my minutes per month. But for those of you looking to get in on the unlimited voice and data plans that Sprint and T-Mobile has had for a while now, the new rates might be worth looking into:


Trade The Stuff You Don’t Want…For The Stuff You Do.

So, you have some stuff in your house that you no longer want but have an idea of a couple things you actually do want? Don’t feel like trying to sell them on Craigslist or Ebay? Why not try swapping your stuff for someone else’s? No matter what you want to get rid of, chances are that there is someone else, somewhere, who wants it or can find a use for it. By getting into swapping with others, you you accomplish four things all at once:

Estimated Taxes Due Tomorrow, January 15th.

It’s that time yet again! If you pay estimated taxes like I do, your Federal and State payments are due tomorrow, January 15th. I have been paying estimated taxes for many years now, and while I find it kind of a pain in the you-know-what, I truly enjoy working for myself on my own time. It’s definitely a trade-off to make sure I always put away enough money to pay the taxes every 3 months! I have a special “Taxes” account over at ING Direct that I put 30% of every dollar I make into, as I made the mistake 2 years ago of not setting enough aside – and boy did that hurt come April 15th. So I cannot recommend enough that you open an account just for your estimated taxes and fund it as well as possible.
