In January, I took a long hard look at my finances and realized I was spending money in the wrong places. So I made some changes, and today I saw my first positive effect of what I’ve been calling “The Cheapening.”
That’s a 43% change in my cellphone bill because I thought, “Hey! I don’t need all of the bells and whistles!” I never came close to sending all of the text messages I bought. And do I *really* need to surf the web from my phone? No. That’s why I pay Comcast. So while I didn’t ditch the data plan altogether, I switched to the cheapest plan.
