Decision 2013: Giving up the landline...finally!

In order to cut costs - and because my seven weeks at home have made me realize we get way too many annoying sales calls on the house phone -  we are calling it quits on our land line, effective immediately. Today, I created a postcard on Vistaprint to send to the neighbors, family and the hubs' regular clients (because they're the only ones who attempt to reach us that way) and gave everyone our cell numbers and email addresses.
My postcard. Phone numbers/email blurred for obvious reasons.
Once they arrive and are dispatched, we will ditch the phone/answering machine and our "main" phone number forever. It's my digits I'll miss the most. Along with my address, they're the only ones I could remember without straining.

Mazel tov. I'm so happy for you I could call you collect, but then, you probably wouldn't answer.

This is frequent debate in our house also, but so far landline remains. My 86 y.o. mother, and an occasional political call or wrong number is the only time it rings. We keep it because of our security system and some other accounts where we are told we have to have a land line. Did you face any of that?

I believe I have my mother trained to call my cell. Our security system - a cocker spaniel named Lucy - won't know the difference. Not sure what other accounts would come into play. Maybe I'd better look into that. The political calls just about did me in last fall. I told my own political party that if they called me one more time, I wouldn't send them any more money...ever.
