We do a lot of traveling during the holidays. It seems like we have unlimited stops on our way to and from everyone’s houses. I am always checking lists I make in my phone(can’t forget a single present!), setting reminders to keep on track and sending out a text to see if they need anything before we arrive. Most of the time, they call back and say they do. I’ll find out what they need and make a quick dash into Walmart to grab those items.

The snack layout is always the same, which makes it such a memorable tradition. Every year, we look forward to shrimp, crackers, cheese, summer sausage, and of course the veggie tray! The veggie tray is always my first stop because the homemade dip is the best! So when I get a call saying one of the most important veggies was forgotten, you bet I’m going to stop to pick them up!


This is why it’s important staying connected with everyone, their hungry bellies(and tradition) depend on it! It also shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg, so it was time to check out Walmart Family Mobile. I made a trip into my Walmart to see what they had to offer. I found the cell phones in an aisle back by electronics.

The plan was super reasonable! It was only $34.88 per month for unlimited talk, text and web! You can add additional lines for just $29.88 per line. Can you believe that price? This will be perfect for when I need to start buying lines for the kids! You know how they like to text their fingers off!

Since this was my first Walmart Family Mobile plan, I needed to choose a phone and pick up a starter kit(it has the SIM card needed to activate the phone). There were a lot of phone options! I went with the LG L90 which was on rollback from $149.88 to $119. It looked like it had all the features I like in a cell phone. Other great rollbacks were on:

  • Alcatel One Touch Evolve 2 – $49.88 (was $59.88)
  • ZTE ZMAX – $179.00 (was $199.88)
  • Nokia Lumia 530 – $49.88 (was $69.88)
  • Nokia Lumia 635 – $99.88 (was $129.88)
  • Samsung Galaxy Exhibit – $79.88 (was $99.88)

There is also a $40 gift card promotion on the Samsung Galaxy Avant from 12/14-12/27. So when you buy it for $199, you get a $40 gift card back! If it were me, I would buy the phone in one transaction, then use the $40 gift card to buy the starter pack and any accessories in another transaction. That would mean less out of pocket!

My boys love the apps I put on my new phone. This is going to be so great when we are out shopping and they get bored! Keeping busy and connected couldn’t be easier and inexpensive(you all know how I like being frugal!).


I bet you’re thinking, “Don’t leave me hanging, what’s the dip recipe?!”. Well, you are in luck! I am about to share the top secret family recipe! Ok, it’s not really top secret, but only a few people have it. So I guess that makes you pretty lucky!


Best Ever Veggie Dip

  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 Tbs seasoned salt(I like Lawry’s)
  • 1 Tbs dried dill
  • 1 Tbs dried chopped onions
  • 1 Tbs dried parsley flakes

Mix all of this together in a medium sized bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Stir it up before serving, enjoy! This is a really easy recipe to prepare the day before and give you that extra time with your family.

Do you have a favorite recipe at your holiday get togethers?
