Sometimes I feel like I am the only person left on the face of the planet that doesn’t Facebook, tweet, and read emails while I am out and about. I still do not have a cool phone that allows me to do that, but with blogging I feel it is necessary. I am currently working from home, on my blog, so it isn’t something I have really thought about until I attended my first conference in May. I wanted to tweet all the sessions I sat in on, and all the cool girls and companies I was spending my time with. Unfortunately that did not happen. If I had a Windows Phone though, I could browse the web, check out what my friends are doing, read on my forums, tweet, check status updates on Facebook, catch up on email and so much more. I’m really liking the looks of the thin and lightweight Samsung Focus. This Windows Phone has a touchscreen, built in camera, PC-like web browsing and many more features. I do believe this phone is in my future, and really soon.
As a mom who loves to save money, and loves to bring the deals to my readers, the Windows Phone and other smartphones offer many FREE money saving apps while you are on the go! I did say FREE so check them out!Amazon (free): Quickly search, shop, compare prices, read reviews, and make purchases on Amazon.com using a simple, intuitive interface.
Best Buy (free): Browse the weekly ad, compare product specs, create your tech wish list, find in-store availability and more with the Best Buy app for Windows Phone..
eBay (free): Keep your bid on top with the eBay application and get real-time updates on your favorite deals so you can be a savvy shopper on the go.

Cellfire Mobile Coupons (free): This app gives you coupons from your favorite brands, letting you save money on every trip to the grocery store. You can easily access deals across multiple grocers and brands – no clipping, no printing, no forgetting.
ShopSavvy (free): Scan the barcode and deals on the particular item will show up in stores around your location. Compare prices to shop or use competitors’ pricing to get price-matching.
Home Depot (free): With the Home Depot application, you can save time and money by browsing over 100,000 products directly through the application. You’ll also find in-store maps and check inventory.

Key Ring Rewards Cards (free): Never carry plastic or paper loyalty, membership, and library cards again. Simply scan the barcode to add your cards and you’ll instantly receive coupons when they become available.
These are the types of things I am missing out on. I have to carry around my loyalty cards, which makes my keychain bulky, and I still clip coupons online before heading to the store; time consuming! I think I am adding one more item to my Christmas list this year, and it will be this:
It sure is a beauty! How would you like a chance at owning one? Well you can have a chance right now!
