Cutting Back on Entertainment Costs
When I lost my job, I knew that I was going to have to find some way in order to save some money. I did not know exactly what I was going to cut back on, but I did know that there were definitely certain things that I was paying for that I was going to need to stop paying for. My kids need the internet for much of their school work, and I was going to need the internet in order to find a new job, and so I knew that that really was not anything that I was going to be able to cut. However, there were also a number of expenses that were associated with the internet that I knew were not necessary. One of those things was the monthly service I was paying for that allowed us to watch movies online. It only cost ten dollars every single month charged to my debit card, but at the point we were at, every little bit went a long way.
So, I went ahead and cancelled that monthly subscription along with a few others in order to lower my monthly bills as much as I possibly could. Because my kids loved being able to watch movies on the internet, they really were not happy at all that I cut this subscription based service. Thankfully, a friend of mine told me about an internet website that allows you to watch movies online without having to pay for a subscription to it every single month. I went ahead and checked it out, and I found that it actually had a great selection of movies.
Well, I am now saving a little bit of money every month and my kids are still able to entertain themselves.
