got so much done today....

that i have been putting off!! called the state about kids medical insurance, i hate doing it, but we qualify! my kids are fianlly going to have health insurance! canceled the pool guy, gotta save that money! canceled our bottled water guy, gonna have to go to the store and fill my own bottles, but again, saving that money! and we had to call social services to see if they can help with our electric. normally, we can pay, but due to some illnesses this month, it was just to much of a squeeze. i am on pins and needles waiting to see who gets here first, the guy to cut off the electric, or if they are gonna help pay just this once! uhg! i hate it when things are tight! but we just have to take it one day at a time, cut out things we don't need.

what have you had to do to save money? do you have alternatives to cable/internet/ things like that? just curious!

  • We switched providers for a lot of our things, cell phones, phone. We also called the cable company and asked them flat out for a better deal. Good for you getting so much done, it feels great, doesn't it?
