What nonessential essential do you pay for every month?

For me, it's the internet. People say it's not an essential thing to have, and of course they mean you don't need it to live or to survive, but in a way I do because my education and my current job take place primarily online. This would be more difficult if I had to trek to the local library or commute all the way to my university (1.5hrs away on the interstate) on a daily basis.

I would also say Dr. Pepper, but we do cut that out of the budget if money gets too tight.

  • Internet, Cable, Cellphones, but I am on bed rest at least 2 days a week. We rarely go out to eat and haven't been to a movie since we got married. It has been over a year since we went out to a bar or had a parents night out. I feel we should have the things that help me when I am in so much pain I can't move.

  • I have to have the internet, if we didn't then I couldn't get Hubby's permits emailed to him for his job, and then he couldn't haul any of the loads he hauls. I guess it would be satellite TV, we could definitely live with out that.

  • Unlimited talk, text and web on our fancy phones (in our defense, we don't have a home computer)
