On the Lighter Side...

Seems that my past four or five posts haven't been too thoughtful and that trend continues with this post. I'm interested in your input on something - phone service, to be exact. The Mrs. and I have had our current phone number for nearly eight years and we're considering dropping our land-line in favor of using our cell phones exclusively.

Our land-line is bare-bones - we have no bells and whistles, save for call waiting. Our reasoning for wanting to drop our home phone is two fold. One, we're now a single income household and want to save money in any way we can. Two, the only people who call us on a regular basis are telemarketers, and I just can't stomach paying $30 a month to have people interrupting home life so I can tell them I'm not interested in their goods/services for the hundredth time.

The biggest drawback to not having a home-phone is that our cells are out of the area, so anyone from church or work who would call would have to make a long distance call. But, like I said, it's not like we have anyone calling us in the first place...

Anyway, I'd be interested in hearing what you have to say.
