I use circleCI extensively on a personal project. I do not need 2 containers since it is only me. But I will probably hit the minutes limit soonish.
50$/month seems like overkill for this project.
Currently costs are hosting for 10$/month, github 7$/month and domain name for 50$/year => 254$/year total.
With the lowest paying plan of circleCI that would add 600$ => 854$/year.
If there was a plan “unlimited time, 1 container” for less than 50$ I would consider using it.
Thanks for doing circleCI
