Lately we have been trying to save money where we can because we really want to buy our first home, and the economy is bad and blah, blah, blah. I guess we should have been doing this long before since it is always good to save money and we really don't need a reason to be conservative. So as we start looking at what we can do to lessen expenses, we really start to come across some really foolish charges.
1. With our insurance alone, we will now be saving $1200.00 a year!!!!! Yea, that's right! No more renter's insurance or $10,000 jewelry insurance. I don't even own $10,000 in jewelry! Plus the insurance company charged us hurricane taxes on everything because we live in FLA. How ridiculous is that? Yes, we live in FLA and yes we get hurricanes, but do I need hurricane protection on my jewelry? I don't think so.
2. We are moving our remaining stuff out of storage this weekend. That is about $200.00 a month we will be saving. What a waste for the past year and a half!
3. We cut back on text messaging fees. $20.00 a month. Better than nothing. So don't text us anymore! J/k.
4. We aren't paying for bottled water anymore. I think we can lower our water standards a little and drink some tap water!
Any way, do you see where I am going with all this! Do you see how much money we can save just by making a few simple calls? I think with all this extra money, I deserve to go shopping!
