Many people still think they need a landline phone, when in reality, many do not. I can think of two viable options:

1. Upgrade your cellphone plan (if needed) and use your cellphones at home. In our case, we didn't even have to upgrade our cell phone plan.

2. If you have a high speed internet connection like cable, use a service like Skype to make calls from home. For about $40 per year, you can make unlimited calls throughout the U.S. and Canada. You even get your own phone number.
