    Default Found $63 bucks per month

    Gave my hubby TMMO to read. And asked him to do the budget for at least six months, thinking new eyes on it, could help us find some more money.

    1. He cut down our cable channels. $13 per month

    2. Changed to basic land-line with no features. $30

    3. He found that AT&T had been double charging us for our unlimited text feature. Charging his iphone for it and then charging us a family plan as well. Not only is our bill now $20 less, they refunded us over $77 for thier error over the last few months. $20

    So nice he is getting engaged in this, I can't even express how happy I am! So $63 for very little lifestyle change, awesome.

    Great news! It always helps when your spouse is on board and to have a fresh set of eyes look at things!

    We found a governemt discount on our cell phone bill was available to us. So we saved over $20 a month on that along with the $75 discount we got on our cable bill by calling them and asking what we could do to lower our bill.
