I'm so glad to have Cake Wallet as a sponsor of Opt Out, as it is an excellent FOSS mobile wallet for Monero, Bitcoin, and Litecoin that I use personally (for Monero) and highly recommend. When I want to on-board someone to Monero on the spot, I have them install Cake Wallet every time.
Cake Wallet was the first iOS open-source wallet for Monero, and has been a staunch and passionate member of the Monero community since it's inception, publicly supporting key initiatives in the community, funding conferences and meet-ups, and driving Monero adoption across the board.
Cake Wallet has an easy to use UI, works on both Android (and on CalyxOS flawlessly!) and iOS, and has been rapidly improving over the years. It's my go-to Monero wallet for spending Monero, as it combines a simple UX with more and more advanced features for power users with each release.
Cake Wallet also has some excellent exchange features built in for those times where I need Bitcoin/Litecoin for spending where Monero is not supported.
I highly recommend checking Cake Wallet out for storing and spending your Monero across all your devices.

I'm extremely excited to have LocalMonero as a sponsor of Opt Out, as I have personally used LocalMonero.co for several years and highly recommend them to friends, family, and on Twitter.
There is an incredible need for non-KYC (know-your-customer) and decentralized ways to get in and out of Monero, a privacy-preserving cryptocurrency, and LocalMonero is my preferred way to do so. You can use LocalMonero to buy and sell Monero for fiat or other cryptocurrencies directly peer-to-peer, with many different payment methods supported at the moment.
I personally suggest going with cash face-to-face whenever possible as it offers the greatest privacy and lets you talk to other like-minded Monero users, but the other payment options can be much easier depending on where you live and your personal threat model.
