  Paying for Things You Don't Use

Do you watch all those cable channels? Do you need those extra features on your phone? Are you getting your money’s worth out of your gym membership? Are you taking full advantage of your Netflix, TiVo and magazine subscriptions? Take a look at what your family actually uses, then trim accordingly.

We are pretty careful about this... Canceled the Y membership because I didn't feel that we were getting our money's worth after moving a little farther away. Frugal phone plans, downgraded tv, etc etc. I think it's good to evaluate all those "extras" on a regular basis.

We have the minimum satellite package the has the chanel my husband insists on watching.  UGH

We also have minimum phone plans.

We don't have a gym membership or Netflix, or TiVo or anything else like that.

Sadly I can't shrink down my Satellite package, I don't watch even half of the channels I have, but in order to get channels I DO watch I have to pay for the middle package, horrendous BS says I.
