Sometimes it is a good idea to periodically look at your expenses with a view to trimming the fat. I had some spare time on Saturday and had at look at my internet, cell phone and subscription entertainment.
Called my cell phone provider, T Mobile, and switched to a plan that gives me the same level of service for $5 less per month. The call took about twenty minutes.
Called my internet provider, Comcast, and switched to a plan that gives me 25% faster internet for $7 less per month. I had to call a couple of times and suffer through some automated menus and waited a bit for an agent, but eventually got through to a live person.
Then I straight up cancelled Netflix and Disney Plus. That took about 5 minutes each.
So, for about an hours work, I’ll save about $26.98 per month (thats $8.99 for Netflix, $5.99 for DisneyPlus, $5 for T-Mobile and $7 for Comcast). And, over 12 months, thats $323.76. Not bad for an hours work.
