Great job!!! We're right there with you. It's all about baby steps. When our cell-phone contracts are up, we're going to a month-to-month type thing I think. When our DirecTv contract is up, we're going with Hulu and/or Netflix only. I have implemented the cash system and we have a BEF.

Yep all the little things add up. We have a more basic cable plan but even that is high IMO at $80 a month, but it was $20 for a year so that was nice. I too almost fall over when I hear people's cell phone or tv bills which seem to be about $200 each for some people!!

Tons of great tips in this forum for sure :)

Way to go! Amazing how quick and easy it is to slash expenses when you start working on it. Our big goal is to pay off our home. We just refinanced this fall so 30 yrs seems daunting, but our goal is 10 yrs, then, well who knows, we may just turn the heat up to 65 in the winter and 75 in the summer :giggle: (60 in winter 82 in summer, Only as warm as It is in winter due to new baby) hard to imagine what you will do with extra money when it is so far away

That's awesome!! Well done, I agree, I have learnt so much here and my finances are in much better shape now.

I'm with ya on the cell phone thing. My BIL and SIL told me they were paying $250 a month I nearly passed out. And that was WITHOUT data!

If it weren't for Virgin mobile, I'd ditch the cell phone and just have a landline. I refuse to have a combined bill over $50!
