My phone bill was paid yesterday and it was $33.12. As you may recall, I have been debating about canceling the home phone service. I know in all ways it makes no sense to have it, considering I rarely use it, but I just can't bring myself to make the switch yet. But, I did discover a way to cut my bill down a little.
I have caller ID. I love caller ID. So, while canceling it would save me money, I am not willing to do that as long as I can afford it. It is well worth the monthly fee not to have to talk to the telemarketers and election ads that bombard us all! But I did discover that our $9.95 caller ID fee is actually comprised of two fees - $6.00 for the number and $3.95 for the name. So I just called and had them drop the name part of the caller ID display. With tax, I think I will be saving about $4.28 a month - or over $50 a year!
I also have found a way to save money on my U-Verse TV (cable) bill. I will explain that in another post in the next couple days.
And speaking of bills, I mailed my water bill today - $25.98. I am thankful that I live somewhere that I can have clean, safe water delivered right into my home. But I am curious, are my water rates average compared to other parts of the country? What do you pay each month for water?
