Amy, I really like your blog. As soon as he gets home, I am going to bug my son to check his AT&T bill to be sure he’s not being overcharged. I will keep checking back for more wisdom.

found you thru your post on savvydollar. I am so interested in reading your blog but the type is too small for me that I give up quickly. I can easily read the headlines but the actual content is too small. . any advice on how to make it bigger. . I am not the most tech savvy. Is everyone viewing it this small or it just me and something with my computer. . .thanks for your time.

Hey Su!
So glad you found my blog.
Have you tried going to “view” near the top of your screen. It is to the right of “file” and “edit.”
Once you click on view, then click on “text size” and hit “larger” or “largest.” As I get older, I find myself bumping my text size up, too. Hope you keep reading!
