So we looked at our bills and tried to change them into our favor.

It was harder than I thought. We researched before getting them the extras like cable internet and cell phones to get what we wanted at a good deal.

So trying to lower them today was not very fruitful.

Take cable and internet for one. We could lower them by about 8 dollars a month. We had a old plan and the new plans were way more expensive and come with contracts. So for that 8 a month we would lose the DVR have to rent their modem have limited internet and lose most of our tv channels.

Cell phone was similar.

Electric, gas, water, and trash there is no choice you get what you you get. To lower your bills you just have to watch how much you use.

Man, we were just to good from the get go and can't lower the bills now.

Have yet to figure out how we will lower the monthly out go.

What is a trac phone? Can you text with it?

We bought these I think it is 3 yrs now this fall. We don't use the texting. We bought the ones with the double promotion minutes for lifetime of phone. Buy a $ 20 card every 3 months. Go online and find a bonus code to use first. And then go to the tracfone website to add the new card. And or you can buy minutes through the tracfone site. I have done it both ways. We bought our phones at Walmart. I have seen them at other stores also.
So it works out to about $ 7 each month for each of us. Relatives now give us $ 20 cards at Xmas or birthdays :)

We have no problem with reception where we live. Hubby needs his for his job. I don't use mine a lot but it sure has come in handy more than once.
