Here are some resources you can use to get your breakup party started (and to spread the word about what you've done):

  • Conversation Starters
  • Writing Prompts
  • Lock screen downloads—set these images as your phone's lock screen as a way to remind yourself think before you check
  • "I'm breaking up with my phone to ______" printable signs to fill in and post on social media
  • Social media profile overlays

Step 3: Invite Your Friends

You can create your own invitation, or send one using the form on this site.

Step 4: Have the party!

When guests arrive, ask them to leave their phones at the door. You might want to put out a stack of envelopes and markers that guests can use as temporary "sleeping bags" for their devices.
