Afford your Life: Save $20-50 per month

In my last post on cutting expenses, I did a general take on how to lighten the load on your bank account.  If you want to get real, though, this series is for you.  I'm gonna show you how to save about $500 per month total over the course of a few posts :)

Switch from your iPhone plan to Republic Wireless

I was afraid to drop the iPhone habit a few years back, but when I realized that I was spending $90 per month on my plan, I had to quit. Republic Wireless has a $10 WiFi for data/Unlimited Cell and Text plan or a 3G/Unlimited Cell and Text plan that costs $25 total. Love it!  If you must keep your iPhone (I know, the camera is amazing) then look into a plan like Family Mobile ($40 per month)
