Water Bill:So, I am not going to bother telling you how to conserve water by not flushing, using cold water, shutting off the water while you are brushing your teeth, using a timer for showers, blah blah blah. I assume that you know all of that already and that is literally the only way to lower your water bill. Unless of course you are one of the lucky ones with well water. No wiggle room with pricing there so don’t bother calling. Want to save money on your water? You have to do it the good old fashioned way. The way your mom and grandma told you to do! I also shop sales for bottled waters so we are not constantly running the tap water for drinks. I get to return the bottles for the bottle deposit and in the long run, It saves me quite a bit. I ended up buying 11 cases of water at CVS the other week for $20 and then got back a $10 gift card. That should last us pretty much all summer. Also, there are usually coupons for the little individual drink mixes so the kids can grab a bottle of water and one of those flavor thingies (I’m really technical, can’t you tell?) so they can still have flavored waters.
Cable Bill:Most of us probably have some bundle plan that includes cable, internet and phone simply because it is way cheaper to have all 3 than it is to just have one of those services. We don’t even have a phone jack in our house nor do we own a home phone but we have a phone number simply because it saved us money. Most of us sign up for cable and their introductory price is usually only for the first year. Who is going to remember and call back after a year and change your service so your price doesn’t go up?! NO ONE! And, don’t think that they are going to remind you! Absolutely not! So, we called them! Come to find out, we had an intro package that included all of these very nice features (that A- we never used B- we didn’t really even know we had them C- or didn’t even know how to use them) that we were now paying full price for because our introductory rate was over. Super easy fix! Asked to have them removed and saved an immediate $50 off our bill. Plus, they gave us a monthly $10 credit for being good customers and as an apology for the service. (They could see that theses items were never used in our account) That leaves us with a savings of $720 a year on our cable bill! Review your bill. Only pay for what you need. If you have superman speed WiFi and you only have 1 or 2 devices in your household, you are probably paying way too much for internet service. you may have unlimited international calling and don’t even know how to dial an international number! Fix it! Have that service removed. Play with your service until you are not only happy with your service, but also with the price!
