Ask the Readers: How can I best utilize my iPhone?

ask-the-readers-blue

Today’s questions is from Jen:

My “not-smart” phone that I’ve had for 6 years just bit the dust and my husband bought me an iPhone. I’m wondering how people use these for meal plans, grocery lists, scheduling their days, etc.?

Not just apps to download, but using alarms, or other features, too. I really want this phone to be an effective tool that makes my life better and more efficient, not just another thing to distract me.

Ask the Readers: Is a home warranty worth the cost?

Today’s questions is from Michele:

We are purchasing a home built in the early 80′s. Most of the appliances are more than 5 years old, but it has a new roof and new furnace.

I’m wondering if it’s worth the $400-$600 to buy a home warranty? I know that with a warranty, we might be tied to certain repair companies, be required to pay a flat fee for repair visits, and aren’t guaranteed replacements unless it’s completely unfixable. -Michele

Ask the Readers: How much should I save for a trip to Disney?

ask-the-readers-blue

Today’s questions is from Michelle:

Your blog has inspired me to start saving for something that I really want to do, and feel like it’s just way too expensive: a Disney World vacation!

I have coworkers who travel there all the time, but our budget makes a vacation like that a once-in-a-lifetime trip for us. However, I have NO IDEA what my saving goal would/should be!

I live in Pennsylvania, so we would need airfare for 3 plus a hotel, park tickets, and whatever else you have to pay for when you’re there (food, a few souvenirs, etc.)

So I’m wondering what a practical budget with be for this type of trip… and I’m looking for frugal tips for taking a trip like that without breaking the bank.

Also, I have a couple years to save as my daughter is barely 2, and I think she’d need to be 3 or 4 for it to be worth it. I just really want to be able to do this for my family! -Michelle
