Do you have a tween in your family? If so, they probably have asked you to buy them a cell phone. Or maybe your tween already has a cell phone?  If not, I am sure you are hearing what I hear daily, everyone else has a phone. I need a phone too!  After much talk, rule making, and discussions,  this tween has a phone and as you can see, he is quite happy about it.  We planned this purchase over the past few years. We read reviews of phones, we discussed phone etiquette and we made some serious rules for this phone.  We have a one strike and you lose your phone rule, so I know he will be using this phone very carefully.  If you need a new cell phone too,  you should check out the selection at your local Walmart.  The Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan has some excellent specials and rollbacks happening right now.  Walmart is a new store for us since we did not have one near our old house.  We are enjoying discovering all the goodies they have to offer.

The Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan is perfect for your family.  For only $49.88 a month, you receive unlimited talk, text up to 10GB of 4G LTE data.  This pricing is a great deal, and you know what is the best part of it, no 2 year contract!  You will only be responsible for a month by month plan.  The 10GB of data is excellent when you have kids who are heavy data users. We have been using our phone for a while and we are not even close to using up even 1GB.  Plus, each month after you pay your bill, you will be able to watch a VUDU movie as well (one new release rental worth up to $7.00).  My kids are always begging me to go to the movie theater, so a free movie we can watch at home together is a huge savings when you have a big family.  If all seven of us went to a movie and it was $12 a ticket, we would be at $84 just for the movie tickets. Add on the snacks and drinks and we are well over $100.

You can also add additional lines for less, mix and match up to 5 more lines all on the same account.  This is just perfect for those families with lots of kids. Now is the perfect time to sign up, the Starter Kit is on rollback for only $19.88, down from the regular price of $25.  You will not even see a bill until the end of the month, so all you need to get started is less than $20!  After careful review my son chose the LG G Stylo phone currently on rollback for $179, regularly $199.

Walmart Family Mobile Plan, Only $49.88 a month for unlimited talk, text and data

In the next few weeks we will be enjoying our first free movie on VUDU. With the Walmart Family Mobile plan, as soon as you pay your bill, you will receive a code which allows you to download one new movie that you can stream on your Smart TV, Chromecast, TV, Roku, game console or Tablet. We are planning a family movie night with our Savory Popcorn to celebrate the end of school.  For our first movie we are deciding between Deadpool, Star Wars:The Force Awakens, or The Good Dinosaur. Quite a wide variety of tastes in my family, right?

My kids are not the only ones counting the days until summer vacation.  I can’t wait either.  No homework, no commuting to school, no waking up early and rushing to get ready.  We will celebrate summer’s arrival by watching our Top 5 Summer Movies.  To figure out our top 5 movies, I asked each of my kids to choose one, some we can all watch together, while others are just for the older kids.  The tween will make his popcorn blend (recipe below) and we will gather together, celebrate summer, and watch some great movies this summer.

TOP 5 Summer Movies:

  1. Kung Fu Panda 3, chosen by the 8 year old
  2. Star Wars:The Force Awakens, chosen by the tween
  3. Race, chosen by the teen
  4. The 5th Wave, chosen by the high school graduate
  5. The Hateful Eight, chosen by the oldest son
