iPhone – Buy Refurbished!

iPhone 6

We are partial to the Apple iPhone due to it’s family settings allowing us to control screen time and actively monitor our kids’ phones. That said, the iPhone isn’t cheap.

With 4 kids, one way we have been able to save money is purchasing refurbished iPhones. Typically we hand a used iPhone down to a kid when a parent gets an upgrade. That said, we have had several incidents requiring us to purchase another iPhone.

Buying a refurbished iPhone saved us money. While there are options like Facebook Marketplace to purchase a refurb phone, we prefer to buy off of Amazon for peace of mind.

Gaming Headset
