  • We cut cable as a way of cutting expenses. The next thing to go would be our Y membership if need be. I stopped buying books and get about 90% of my books from the library.

  • My own hair. Seriously!! I'd cut my hair myself : ) why need a beautician to cut my hair. I know how i like it anyways.

    lol ! No but, if we could live with nothing but the bare essentials, keep just the hot water, and pay rent,... lose cable, and not get so much in fast food. Walking more, not taking the car. Carpooling.
