Due to the economy, many people have had to trim their budgets. Have you done any trimming? I bet most of you have. Here's an article about trimming some items in your budget.
Here are some of the things that I have lowered recently:
- For some reason, when I bought a new car, full coverage cost WAY less than just liability for my super old car. I just increased my comprehensive deductible to $1,000, and this trimmed another $40 off every 6 months. Now my bill is only around $350 for 6 months for a new car (with full coverage).
- I cut my cable by a tad. I eliminated HBO and Showtime, which saved me an extra $20 a month. I sure do miss True Blood and all of my other favorite shows though.
- I also switched around my cell phone plan and found a 17% off discount through the BF's job, which saves around $20 a month.
