At a time where many people are cutting their home phone service we made the decision to add it.
Why Did We Get A Home Phone?
We toyed around with the idea of a home phone last year – but didn’t think it would be a significant enough savings to consider seriously – that was until this January when we started negotiating our internet service. We found out we could get a faster internet service PLUS home phone for the same price we were already paying!
Is It Worth It?
Absolutely! We’ve already been able to cut back on the minutes needed for our cell phone plan, but additionally we no longer need to worry about our phones being dead or being unable to reach one another at our home. That peace of mind alone is a huge benefit. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve missed a call on my cell while upstairs changing a diaper or switching the laundry.
Here’s the moral of the story… it doesn’t hurt to pick up an extra service for your home if it has the capability to save you money and provide peace of mind. Spending time on the phone negotiating with companies to get the most bang for your buck is always worth the effort!
I’d love to hear about your phone plan experiences in the comments below. Does your family use a home phone to help save on cells?
