  • We just moved overseas, and in the process we had to do without many things for a few months, and we're still adjusting to not having some things that we had before, so this is something we've been facing :-)

    Phones with all sorts of features (even the so called basic ones like call waiting, voice mail, etc) - we had to live without a phone for about a month while moving. Cable tv - not an option where we live. An ice maker in the fridge. I still miss the last 2, but while we joke that we need them, and we really want them, we are living just fine without them.

    Silverware - lol - we've gotten pretty good at using chopsticks pretty much every time we go out to eat, not just sometimes when we feel like it, though when we moved here this summer we were pretty sure we were going to need them (silverware) the whole time we lived here :-)

  • Cell phone and internet.

    I could live without cable tv... and we would shut it off for a couple of months until our financial situation fixes itself, but we're under contract.

  • Internet- I also go to school online. And I've started printing coupons off the internet, shopping online, and now paying bills online.

    Some months I think I actually save more money than I spend on the internet.
