So much buzz about Verizon adding the iPhone to its product line this week. Will you switch carriers just to get an iPhone? Will you be heading to Verizon to upgrade?
I currently have a Blackberry. While it is not frugal, it’s been a necessary evil for me to handle e-mails and blog-related things when I’m away from home. I also have an iPod Touch. The iPod Touch has made me want an iPhone in the worst way. It is so much more user friendly for surfing the internet/e-mails/Facebook than the Blackberry is.
But, being the cheapskate I am, I’ll wait until the excitement of the Verizon iPhone wears off a little. I want to make sure that the infamous antenna issues are corrected on the new Verizon iPhone. I also want to see if waiting until my contract is up will net me a better deal.
What bothers me the most is how much these companies charge for data plans, when data is super cheap. Ugh.
Anyway…. here are a few things I’ve been reading that I thought you would find interesting:
A couple of weeks ago we had a five-hour long power outage during -25°F weather (that’s air temp, NOT windchill). We survived, but for those of you who face power outages, I think Wise Bread‘s list of 20 Things to Have on Hand for Power Outages is very useful.

Absolutely LOVE this post at Marketing Mama: What It’s REALLY Like to be a MOM. I can really relate to this one.

I love 2011, in one word over at Surviving and Thriving. It’s amazing how one simple word can open so many doors to us… even when we are at our lowest point.
Enjoy reading these posts. I did.
