More Services. I am old enough to remember the days when families had one phone number. One phone number meant one phone bill. Now almost everybody carries a cell phone, and we still have a home phone. Our phone bills have doubled or tripled. We also have cable TV and internet services to pay for. These used to be luxuries, but now we rely upon them. _ Busy Lives. We are very busy these days, and it seems challenging to fit in everything we want to do.. Because of this, we tend to eat out more. When we do eat in, we rely upon expensive convenience foods. With rising prices, it is hard enough to keep the price of groceries under control. But now we are spending a lot more on food.
Do some comparison shopping for services. Many families have eliminated a land line in favor of cell phones or a cheaper internet phone service. My own cell phone company also sells home internet phone service for บ a month. My old phone service cost me about ์ a month after paying fees and taxes. I even got to keep my old phone number. That was a very painless way to save 軸 a year. I also did some auto insurance rate comparison shopping. I combined my home and car policies with another top company and saved almost 赨 a month! Now my savings total is up to 趚 a month, and I have not given up anything.
