Here’s a simple tip you may not have thought of if you use your smart phone to access the internet. You can monitor your data usage to see if you are actually using what you pay for.

If you use significantly less data on your phone that what you are paying for you might want to consider dropping your mobile data plan totally. You can always connect to the wifi that you probably have at home and also utilize the free wifi that you can get in a lot of places.

This will save you at least $30 a month for something you are not really using so go ahead and give it a try. Of course some carriers require you to have a data plan if you are on contract…but if you have dropped the contract then this might be an option for you.
