Momma Told Me: Sometimes success is painful.

It's that time again. Tax time.

This year I reached a milestone in taxes owed- something those older than me are quick to remind me is in fact a blessing in disguise, not a curse to be lamented over. After all, when one's taxes go up that means their income has also increased. More profit, more taxes. Somehow I'm not quite at the jumping up and down phase of acceptance, yet. On the other side, Jay seems to have balanced his deductions, at last, to actually break even with the IRS come tax time. He no longer sees a Federal refund, but had a decent sized State refund coming back to him. Since we're not married, I had the solo joy of watching my piggies fly out of my bank account as Jay watched them fly into his.

Whether you're paying taxes or enjoying a refund we can all agree that this is one time of the year when we all want to stretch our buck a little extra further. Thankfully Walmart Family Mobile, and their wide selection of affordable plans and phones can help me max my tax time dollars.

At the end of last year my old phone began to reset itself multiple times a day and lock up- so I was excited to find the Samsung Galaxy On5 on rollback for $69 at my local Walmart. It offers all the same features as my old smartphone, such as a high quality camera, WiFi connection, Bluetooth, responsive touch screen, and more. Even better, I get amazing service in and around my with Walmart Family Mobile's network. (Check your coverage here!) And I love that I can be single and on my own smartphone plan without breaking the bank each month, or signing a contract!

I'll admit- I use my phone a lot to keep up with work and social media, but I use it even more to keep myself entertained while on the go. Yes, I'm that one girl who's stopping on the sidewalk to swipe her screen up a million times trying to catch a rare creature, or pulling out her battery pack and earbuds in line at the DMV. I use a LOT of data, and data doesn't grow on trees (it grows on clouds, silly!) Which is why having unlimited data (*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G) for one flat monthly rate, with Walmart Family Mobile, is worth it's weight in gold to me.

I was feeling pretty proud of myself for snagging an amazing deal on a new phone, and putting my lack of tax return to good use by saving money on my mobile plan, that I got a little inspired. I really wanted to dress my new phone up a little with something I didn't see in every store or boutique, so I picked out a few children's animal figures from the toy department at Walmart. I also grabbed some crafting suction cups, super glue, and a box cutter. For those who want to go truly all out you can find clear acrylic dust plugs to make your own smartphone charms online.

The concept's simple, really, on a flat, stable, blade ready surface (such as wood or a polypropylene cutting board) carefully slice the head off your chosen animal figure. Use slow, targeted, strokes and be patient. Good quality toys will be made from a rubberized material that will be easier to cut, while cheaper figures may have a harder plastic finish with a hollow center. Depending on the animal you may want to cut the head at an even horizontal cut, and then cut the remainder of the neck to leave a flush vertical surface.

Use a drill bit to carefully create a small hollow on the inside of your animal's head for your dust plug to rest in and glue it in place. Depending on the materials you may need to use hot glue. Male sure your suction cup has a flat back and glue it to your animal's neck/body. Viola! Instant animal accessories for your smartphone!

After making your own smartphone stands and charms you might be feeling pretty smart- I know I sure did. But there's nothing smart about paying too much for your smartphone service. Or, even worse, paying too much for too little service. On top of patting yourself on the back when your bill comes in each month, Walmart Family Mobile even gives you that extra reason to celebrate with the FREE VUDU credit (a $7 value, the equivalent of a new release) so you can spend some serious family time celebrating each month as well. Yes, Walmart Family Mobile is kind of a tax time tradition in our home- upgrade our phone, upgrade our plan- we always find a way to max our taxes just a little more with Walmart. Now, tell me, are you paying taxes or enjoying a refund this year?

What Daughter Says: Whether you're paying or getting money back this tax season, max your tax dollars with smart decisions such as a great mobile plan.

  1. Oh my gosh - those are the cutest things ever. I'm going to have to make a dozen of them. Honestly, when you have a local Walmart, you hardly ever need to go anywhere else.

  5. I need to look into this. My kids are getting to the point where they need/want their own phones. They will be at sports practices by themselves and I don't like them there without communication.

  9. I'm just glad you didn't decapitate a goat....heh. They are very cute, though. I wish the plan was available here in the boonies. I keep looking but not yet. My husband says it's because there are just not enough of us living out here. Walmart Family Mobile sounds like a great plan.
