Freebies!

November 3rd, 2008 at 12:38 am

So I just headed back through the Freebies section and signed up for a bunch of stuff. It really does help. For a while I didn't have to buy any shampoo or conditioner, I was going off free samples for a month or two. I haven't bought deodorant in over a year, or toothpaste, due to samples that I've gotten. If it's a good enough one I'll have my mom sign up for it too. Smile Yes, I cheat, but I figure I'm saving a few bucks a month by not having to buy these things, so it's worth it.

Cancellations

November 1st, 2008 at 01:51 pm

Well, step one in saving money has been done. I went through everything that we are paying for and cancelled things that weren't necessary or not being used. Mostly games. We had some different games that were being paid monthly for that weren't being played enough to keep paying on them. For example, James was still paying for his World of Warcraft account and has only been playing about twice a month, if it was even that. We decided that it wasn't worth it to continue paying $15 a month for something that was only being played a few hours. If he wants to play again later we can always re-activate the account. It was all just little things like that, but everything ads up!
