I'm Just Practical

I know I've said this before, but I'm probably one of the last people on the planet apparently who can't see paying a small fortune for a freggin' PHONE. I have a $15 flip Tracfone I grab when I leave the house in case of emergency, or if I need to make a VERY rare call when away from home. I buy a card to refill minutes every 90 days for $20. At home, I use a cheap VOIP based phone service (around $7/month). I've never sent a "text" in my life, only make/receive voice calls on phones. If I think I may want to take a picture when I leave the house, I grab my Panasonic point and shoot camera on the way out the door. ALL my "internet" based stuff is done on my home desktop.

Guess most would call me either "cheap" or "old fashioned", but I do what I think is practical for me.
