Data usage help!

I have 5GB of data and am constantly finding myself going over... By a lot. We don't have wifi. I have most of my apps data turned off. And I also turn my data off when I'm not using it. What am I doing wrong?

You're likely not doing anything "wrong"
Just need to use less.

Youtube, instagram videos, anything with videos really will eat up your data.
Go to your data settings and scroll down to see which apps are using the most data.

Since you say you don't have WiFi, that's probably your problem. Phones are poor substitutes for home internet. I realize some very rural areas have difficulty getting reliable Internet service but you should definitely look into who provides Internet in your area.
