There is something magical and exciting about heading off to college. It’s such a wonderful, busy and crazy time in life that seems to happen in a blink of an eye.
One of my nephews headed off the college this past weekend, so before he left I made him a little gift basket to get the semester started off right. We all know how much young men eat, so I filled the goody bag with his favorite snacks and gift cards. You can’t study if you are hungry!

I grabbed a bag that is his college colors, used die cut letters for the university letters and stuffed the bag with Ramen Noodles, candy and gift cards for iTunes, Taco Bell and Whataburger.

I have so many nieces and nephews (31 to be exact), there is always a birthday, holiday or event that I am having to purchase some sort of gift for. This can really add up! But with the money I save from switching to Walmart Family Mobile a few months ago I am able to buy family a few gifts without it breaking my bank account. It was easy to make the switch knowing that WFM has the lowest priced unlimited phone plans.

If you are looking to save money or looking to get your student a cell phone check out Walmart Family Mobile. The service is $29.88/month (for the first line) Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan that includes up to 1G of 4G LTE data. Not to mention great deals on the following phones:
  • LG Leon LTE: $79.82 (Rollback from $99.82)
  • ZTE Zinger: $19.99 (Rollback from $29.88)
  • Disclaimer: All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change. Please refer to http://cbi.as/l8hy or your local Walmart for current pricing.
How do you celebrate those going back to school? How do you stay in touch with those heading off to college?
