With the economy like it is, I have been trying to scale back some. I canceled my extra cable stuff and have been working to pare down other household expenses. I carry the family cell plan---it's just cheaper to have all phones on one bill. The carrier I have been with for 8 years was recently bought out by T-mobile. I went online to pay my bill and I have a credit, after this month's bill of $151.00. I have been paying more than $300 a month since I got easy child and difficult child's phones 4 years ago. I also pay gfgbiomom's bill---because she lives alone and often goes out at night by herself. And I cover husband's phone as well. So I have 5 phones. I didn't mind---they are all unlimited with unlimited texts and messages and free long distance---so I closed my land line and got used to paying to big bill. easy child got a blackberry this past summer and we added the internet to hers. So....my bill was around $320 a month. Well, with T-mobile it will only be about $200. That means this month I have no bill and next month it will only be about $50. I am doing a happy dance right now. I can use that money to pay off my one credit card!!! Yeah for me.
