Use Your Tax Refund to try the Lowest Priced Unlimited Plans by Walmart Family Mobile #MaxYourTax

Every year my husband and I look forward to doing our taxes. I know that sounds a little strange but with five kids we usually get a decent refund. So once we have paid any bills that have been neglected, we do a little spoiling for ourselves and our kids. Okay so we mostly spoil our kids but that's because they are awesome. I knew our son, Angel, really wanted a new cell phone. So I did some research and found out that the Walmart Family Mobile Plans are the lowest priced unlimited plans available!

Even though Angel already had a phone, he wasn't on a unlimited plan. He is constantly running out of minutes, which made his old phone plan costly. If he was out of minutes that also meant he couldn't talk with any family or friends. Walmart Family Mobile has a Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web for $39.88 a month. This is such a great deal and seeing that we had our tax refund we couldn't pass up this opportunity to get him a new phone and plan. Now he has no reason not to call his Granny!

Since this was a surprise for him I went to Walmart and went looking for their phones. They were located in the electronics right next to "other" cell phones. I liked that the Walmart Family Mobile had a variety of smartphones that were under $100 to choose from. Being the cool mom that I am (Ha, I know I'm not really!) I thought he would like the Nokia Lumia 521, the phone with Windows 8 operating system. This phone has some cool features, I like the live tiles.
Being that this was a new phone and we had never used the Walmart Family Mobile Plans I had to purchase a starter kit along with the phone, which was only $25. Now when I purchased the phone I didn't expect the cashier to go above and beyond to help me. I figured I would go home and try to figure out how to activate it, but the Walmart cashier, Darlene, took the phone out and activated it for me. I didn't even ask her to! She even checked the number to make sure the phone was working before I left the store. I just had to share with you all her great customer service skills!

Now that the phone has been activated I have to admit I am a little jealous. Angel's Nokia is 4G and has been working perfectly. I have lost service with my provider but so far Angel has had service every where. We even went out into the country with little reception and his phone still had great service! Using the Windows 8 OS has been different but so far Angel is loving his new phone. He's already made some personal touches to it.

I am so glad I was able to not only get Angel a new phone, but to put him on a unlimited plan that's completely affordable. Using the Walmart Family Mobile Plan will help us save a LOT of money! We feel good knowing we used some of our tax refund on something that is necessary but also makes him feel a little spoiled. Now we just have to decide if we want to get the other kids phones too!

Pompeian 100% Grapeseed Oil All-Natural Cooking Spray Review

received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here!

I have always loved baking, and trying a new recipe is always fun. I love that my love of baking has been passed down to my middle daughter, Olivia. We have baked so many things together and now she is old enough to bake without my supervision. We have experimented and made some great things and of course there were some doozies but that's what makes baking enjoyable.

I was given the opportunity to review the Pompeian 100% Grapeseed Oil All-Natural Cooking Spray and so I decided to have Olivia join me in this review. She actually did most of the baking while I was snapping pictures and watching. I wanted to pay close attention to the cooking spray. 

I was surprised that this cooking spray can be sprayed two different ways. You can spray it in a stream as well as your regular spray. Using this spray was easy and worked as good as my other cooking sprays. We baked the cake like normal and there was no funny taste from it. It was a nice surprise that I could use this cooking spray and get the same results as my usual cooking sprays, with one bonus that this is 100% Grapeseed Oil and completely natural. This cooking spray is great for making stir-fry, grilling, sauteing and of course baking. Olivia and I both agreed that this is an awesome product, we also like that it is eco-friendly!
