Ways to $ave

Here are some ways we’ve tried to cut down on our recurring expenses and how much we save (estimated) per month with each strategy:
  1. 1800contacts pricematch + 2% – $5/mo
  2. Cut own hair – $15/mo
  3. Shop at Aldi and buy generic – $40/mo
  4. Switch to Ooma and cancel home phone service –  $25/mo
  5. Switch to PagePlus Cellular – $10/month [resource | great prepaid comparison chart]
  6. Switch to different home and auto insurance carrier – $55/mo
  7. Eat at home – $30/mo

The interesting this is that our quality of life has remained mostly the same.  That is, we are just substituting here–not even cutting back.  In the case of eating at home, I think our quality of life has actually gone up as Grace cooks far better than any restaurant!
