This post is great. There are always things that can be done to save a few dollars each month. These things are even better when your family doesn’t notice any “cuts.” I looked into our cable bill and dropped HBO. We rent movies on Redbox and rarely even look to see what’s available on HBO. A few days later my husband asked about HBO, so I called the cable company back to see how much I had saved by dropping HBO and they offered me free HBO for a year. So….now I have HBO again and am still saving around $35 from when I had previously dropped it.
