monthly savings

after we moved, we're trying to save a bit of money by taking on some normal household chores that we used to 'outsource'. i don't know how prevalent it is in other parts of the country, but at least in our small version of the world (our neighborhood), most everyone has a lawn service and housekeeping service. we've been getting by without either so far.

our cable and internet service is roughly the same as it was before our move, but it's possible for us to drop from basic cable to the absolute minimum, which would be just the network stations, though it's probably not going to happen.

we've dropped a home phone line and use only our cell phones. my wife's company takes care of her charges and i never go over my minutes.

we've canceled our netflix subscription, which saves us from having the same three movies on our coffee table for months and months.
