My girls, they are a pain in my behind and yet there is nothing that I would not do for them. Let me introduce you to China, if you follow me on social media you might have seen her. This girl goes through cell phones like they were growing on trees, and if it wasn't for the fact that I can find her reasonably priced phones on the Walmart Family Mobile service, I don't know what I would do. Her last phone lasted her about 5 months, which is quite a long time for her. During those 5 months her phone was dropped on the floor about a zillion times, it was dropped in water at least two times and she had the back taped to the front for that last month of the phones life. Why she is so rough with her phones I have no idea, I am so careful with mine I can't even imagine what I would do if I were to drop it in water! But this kid, well lets just say that she's never had to buy her own phone yet and this is most likely the reason why she thinks they're disposible.. Do you have a child like this in your life? 

If indeed there is a child or children in your life who are in need of a phone, tax time is the perfect time to get them an upgrade. We took a drive to Walmart to check out the new phones in the Walmart Family Mobile display. As usual we found a phone for every budget including the ZTE Zinger for only  $19.84. This is the one she is going to get the next time she breaks her phone! The phone we ended up picking for her is the Samsung Galaxy Avant ($149.00). 

The Samsung Galaxy Avant has a 5 megapixel camera perfect for her picture taking lifestyle and with 4g LTE speeds she doesn't have to borrow my phone, ever. 

I'm so thankful that the days of expensive phone plans and phones are over. I remember about 9 years ago when Vanessa had her first phone, it was SO expensive. Just for me and her it was so much that the other girls didn't end up getting their first phones till they were much older. But those days are in the past and with Family Mobile ($29.88 for the first line plus a $25 Starter Kit) you really can get all the teens their very own phone. 

So let your kids be free to take selfies, let them text with their friends all day long because Family Mobile features unlimited service. 

This tax refund season, get your kids a sweet upgraded cell phone.

It makes me happy to see China with a new phone versus the taped up one we replaced. I'm only going to be buying her phone for a few more years and while it's my responsibility, I want to know that she has a phone that has every feature she wants and that can keep up with her. I'm maxing my tax refund to make my kids happy. How do you plan to #MaxYourTax?
