Cutting the Costs – Day 2

_piggybnak1Today I called and canceled our newspaper subscription. To some people this would be a big sacrifice, but we get most of our news on the run from the radio, TV and internet. We only have it delivered Fri-Sunday already for about $8 a month, but I only read a bit of Sunday’s and collect the coupons. Since we are often out during Sunday’s anyways, I can always pick up a paper for the coupons if I need it.

Savings $8/month

PS: I also have been trying to pay my mortgage the past few days. Chase seems to just randomly decide that your password will no longer work and then it takes quite some time to get a new one, entering in the loan number, getting a phone call with a verification code, etc. When I called to ask them about my actual loan number they tried to get me to just make the payment over the phone… for an additional $15. This is something I’ve done in the past– but refused to do today! They also tried to give me a credit card with a huge interest rate. No thanks!
