Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores & Zact: a cheaper smartphone option

This post about Zact and Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores was written in a partnership with Best Buy. All opinions are my own.

People are always looking for ways to cut down expenses and lower their bills. Households manage this in different ways, like getting rid of satellite TV or trips to the coffee shop. One way we’ve cut down is by getting rid of our land line phone and most people I know have done the same. However, that has left us with pretty expensive monthly bills for our smartphones. Now, there’s another

my mobility OOPS! moments with Asurion

This post was created in partnership with Asurion, but all thoughts are my own.

How many times have you dropped, broken, or lost your cell phone? I’m better with mine now (knock on wood), but I definitely remember my teenage years… the time I set it on top of my car at the gas station, forgot it was there, and drove away (to find it later smashed in a million pieces on the side of the road)… or the time I left it on an airport seat before boarding my plane… or how about

Super Duper apps for kids (giveaway)

Now Ryan is also really getting into imaginative play that includes story telling. He asks questions about everything… he wants to know how everything works and what it does. I recently got to try out some iPad apps for kids from Super Duper. I love the name because they certainly are super duper apps!

that one time… my phone was in the fridge

Ryan is a tech genius at age 3. He knows more about my iPhone and my iPad than I do. No seriously, sometimes I ask him how to change certain settings or tell him to fix something for me. Ridiculous. A kid-friendly iPhone case is a MUST in this house.

The upside is that Apple has become the best babysitter in our house. The downside is that sometimes it’s hard to get him away from those gadgets (especially in the winter–otherwise he’d be outside!). The WORST is when he decides to
