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.
However, there are many disadvantages of this old technique in keeping all that cash around. It's cumbersome and simply not safe as you can easily accumulate hundreds or thousands of dollars in your cash envelopes. Just imagine the heartbreak and financial setback should something happen to all that cash.
